SURFSET Toronto’s in-depth research & development in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

New SURFSET Toronto owners Andrzej Misiak and Julian Aristizabal are currently fins-deep in research and development at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp in Tamarindo Costa Rica.  With daily coaching from Paco, a local surfer who was formerly on the National Surf circuit, they are meticulously having as much fun as possible on the water while refining and developing training techniques to improve SURFSET workouts in its effectiveness for preparing the whole body, mind and spirit, for catching waves.  Andrzej and Julian adamantly believe that SURFSET is not only a super-fun and challenging full-body workout, but also a powerful training tool for all types of boardsports, suitable for all levels of participants, from beginners to professional athletes.
