As you most probably already know by now, we’re hosting our first ever WATERMAN #XPTExperience next month in Costa Rica, where you have the chance to surf with legend and XPT Co-Founder, Laird Hamilton.

We sent Assistant Performance Director, Mark Roberts to the beautiful Santarena Hotel in Las Catalinas Costa Rica to do some prepwork and he sent us back some photos of the stunning backdrop of this June’s Waterman #XPTExperience. Check out the images and reserve your spot today: http://bit.ly/2PzR07n

THIS EXPERIENCE ONLY! We have added a 3 hour surf session with Laird Hamilton + Ocean Training. Take this rare chance to surf with the legend himself, and live the XPT lifestyle: Primal workouts on the beach, practice the art of ancient Hawaiians’ ocean strength training (walking underwater with boulders), and explore the tropical Costa Rican terrain on a mountain bike ride.

You’ll be nourished with a nutritional diet and gourmet meals throughout the experience, complete with a dinner on the beach, and a stay at the Santarena Hotel, in Las Catalinas, a tropically elegant oasis. World famous surf beaches with 200 kilometers of Guanacaste coastline, fascinating mountains and stunning terrain— each day brings a new activity in this multi-sport adventure.

Incredible testimony from NBA athlete Joakim Noah about how XPT training saved his basketball career.

USA TODAY Article: How surfer Laird Hamilton, volleyball star Gabrielle Reece saved Joakim Noah's NBA career

We’re SO proud of our brother and XPT Ambassador Joakim Noah and the successful NBA campaign he has launched this year with the Memphis Grizzlies. We cannot even begin to describe the hard work and dedication that Joakim put in this off-season in Malibu and while he credits Laird and Gabby and XPT for the revitalization of his career, it wouldn’t have happened without the work ethic and shear determination Joakim exhibits in everything he does. We love you Joakim!

USA Today and a number of news outlets recently dug deeper into Joakim’s summer with Laird, Gabby and XPT. Read the article and be sure to leave Joakim a comment in the comments below: http://bit.ly/2uxztzK

“It’s underwater training in a pool with heavy weights, and so there’s no pounding on the joints,” Noah explained. “It gave my legs a lot of confidence to jump (by) jumping under water with heavy weights. You can imagine the cardio of being 10 feet under water with 50-pound dumbbells, not being able to get to the top and try to get as many jumps as possible and then maybe doing a down-back without any oxygen.”

#GoodTimes #mountainbiking #mtb #mountainbike #mtblife #cycling #enduromtb #bikelife #enduro #mtblove #nature #mountainbiker Diamante Eco Adventure Park Las Catalinas Pura Vida Ride

Very excited to have our training camps featured in The Daily blog at Las Catalinas. Take a look...

Blogs, Podcasts, Bike Rides, and Dinners -- The Daily. Tuesday, March 19th, 2019.


Some gorgeous photos of last night’s sunset for the Daily today, courtesy of longtime Catalinas resident Krista Baker and friends at RaceQuest on an evening bike ride.

To hear the pros tell it, Las Catalinas is just about the perfect place to train for triathlons, which we covered when RaceQuest and Jessica Jacobs were here around Triathlon season, and looking at some of these photos it’s hard not to agree. We actually sat down and talked with another member of the RaceQuest team, Coach Chip Beard, about his experience as a triathlon coach both in town and elsewhere, and you can read the article here.


Keep an eye out in town tonight for Tokyo Street Food, an event at the Beach Club at 6pm, and be make sure to save room tomorrow as well for the Barrio Barbecue, taking place tomorrow evening on Playa Danta. You can sign up for both at Concierge or via the Las Catalinas app, or for the Barrio Barbecue at this link.


Also, make sure to check out the brand new Las Catalinas podcast, LC Radio, which is now available on Spotify!
