Founder, Witch’s Rock
My name is Joe Walsh, I’m the founder of Witch’s Rock Surf Camp.
Witch’s Rock was born from a dream that turned into a reality. We drove a school bus from San Diego to Tamarindo, Costa Rica in 2001 to start the world’s best surf camp and here it is.
My goal is to provide you with a great place to stay, fun waves to ride, and the chance to make lifelong friendships. I hope to see you in the water.
