Overview

Freedom Riding SUP Adventures was formed by Andy Seidensticker and his Costa Rican wife Edith. We started doing SUP lessons and tours five years ago in the fishing village of Mal Pais, taking clients all the basic fundamentals of SUP, and paddling clients into the Cabo Blanco Reserve. The business has grown quickly in the last couple years, and has now expanded into SUP rentals, clinics for all levels, and SUP adventure tours around the Nicoya Peninsula. We are passionate and true lovers of the sport of SUP and take teaching the sport very seriously. Edith competes on the Costa Rican National SUP Race Circuit, and has clinched the National Womens Champion two years in a row, in both long distance and short distance. Contact Freedom Riding if you would like to schedule a class, tour or rental for your next vacation.

Paddle boarding with Edith is not to be missed if you are in the area. I wanted to become a little more confidant on the ocean and my aim was exceeded. I can not believe I managed to stay upright in the 'rollers'. Edith makes...More

The first thing we booked after arriving in Mal Pais was a SUP lesson with Edith. The lesson was timed for the best tides and close to sunset for some great photos. We were a "mixed couple" in terms of athleticism and flexibility and Edith...More
