We are Kalon

At Kalon, we aim to be the premier surf school and resort in the world. Work hard, play hard is at the center of what we do. And through that ideology, we created the surf experience that we always wanted to have.

Kjeld Schigt

Owner/Director

“Before I started Kalon, I lived all over the globe, while working for multinational companies such as BP, Heineken, and Unilever. A very passionate person with boundless ambition, I quit corporate life and started Kalon Surf in the South of Costa Rica in 2011. I wanted to create the best surf school and resort in the world; a place that would allow people to have an all-inclusive experience.

During my travels, I stayed at and researched many luxury hotels, resorts, and surf camps and schools. From Brazil to Morocco to France, I sought out the perfect surf resort. Kalon is a culmination of the experiences I’ve had all over the world, the elusive getaway I’d been craving for many years.

Starting Kalon Surf has been the best decision of my life. My belief in what we provide at Kalon and in the community beyond drives me to work harder than I ever have before. And when I met my beautiful and ambitious wife, Silene on my very first day here, I knew Costa Rica was going to be a special place.”

Silene Vega Delgado

Owner/Director

“Originally from San Jose, Costa Rica, I worked in Finance for many years in Central America for HP and HSBC as an investment banker. After finishing my MBA at TEC, I knew I wanted to change my career. I love people, and I wanted to have an impact on their lives. I wanted to be a part of something that mattered.

With Kalon, I have exactly that. Seeing our guests smile after they catch their first wave or eat a delicious dinner is so rewarding. When I hear that it has been the best vacation of their lives, I get goosebumps!

The future of Kalon is exciting, adventurous, and ambitious - just like surfing! I used to be afraid of the water, but Kjeld and our staff have taught me to surf using the Kalon Method. Thanks to their patience and teaching skills, surfing is now one of my favorite activities. My experience as a professional folklore dancer (the official ceremony of the opening of the national stadium), helps me with my balance, style, and stance.”
