What you'll do

The surf lesson is two hours long. For beginners, we have a theory lesson of approximately 30 minutes on shore, in a lovely shaded spot with a spectacular natural environment, explaining the steps to follow for security (most important) and surf techniques, giving space to respond to questions about surf history and surfing's many different modalities. Afterwards we will have 1.5 hrs. of in-water practice and fun, always supervised and accompanied by the instructor, also catering to the personal rhythm of the student. This first phase takes place in the white water and among small waves, to connect with the ocean and overcome fears.

In the more advanced lessons, we go to the line-up, where the student will share space with a unique and incredible community of surfers, and most importantly catch waves and take home memories for life. All levels are accompanied by the instructor.

For more experienced surfers, we also offer surf trips to anywhere in Costa Rica, chasing the best waves.

Pedro is a great instructor! The explanations were clear and he was great at making critiques of form that you could apply on the next attempt. He definitely understands the game and I’d recommend him to anyone.

A great surf lesson experience. Pedro taught well and was very conscious of keeping safe. I’d never been in a surf board before and Pedro was patient and ensured I had a great experience and even manage to catch a few waves! I’d recommend Pedro for anyone looking for a surfing lesson 😊
