Surf Instructors

Most of our instructors were at least one time ranked in the top 10 professional surfers in Costa Rica. They grew up surfing in Costa Rica and their expert skills show when you see them surf. They are very patient and dedicated teachers of the surfing arts. If you're learning to surf, you'll especially enjoy your time with them and you'll be up and standing fast.

A Group Surf Lesson

Our Tamarindo Beach Group Surf Lessons are a great way to bring your family, friends, or team members together and learn the beautiful art of surfing. We’ve accommodated groups as large as 80 surfers. Contact us! Sometimes the best waves are shared waves. Our lessons typically last one and a half to two hours, and included in the package are the surfboards and wetsuits as well as expert instruction. For an extra fee we can also arrange a catered lunch, picnic areas, firewood, and our pro photographer to prove that all of you actually stood up and had fun. Photo sessions are available upon request. A good, safe, beginner surfing area is extremely important, and Tamarindo's location is the best in Costa Rica's North Pacific Coast. We specialize in fun & safety, and are always mindful of the lesser skilled or younger members of your party.  Appointment times are more flexible during the off-season, and often the conditions are better. So the best season to guarantee space and good conditions for a large group is now. The student-to-instructor ratio is never more than 5:1, and is often 2:1 depending on skill levels and conditions. Our instructors gauge the skill levels of each surfer and proceed accordingly, so that everyone is challenged but no one is overwhelmed. Whether your group wants fun in the sun or an intense session geared towards serious instruction, you will create a shared memory and get some exercise doing it! That’s why we tell folks to save touristic stuff for a rainy day; There’s no waiting in lines for this ride :)

A Private Surf Lesson

PRIVATE SURF LESSONS - Something for Everyone Wave goodbye to wipeouts. A private surf lesson is an investment in your safety that pays off in saved time and frustration. Learning one-on-one is the more traditional recommended approach to learning how to surf. We recommend a two-hour lesson. Included in the package is personal coaching, a surfboard and a rashguard. Approximately ninety percent of our students stand up on their first lesson! Plan for a morning; Afternoons can be windy. We’re available all year-round by appointment, and usually ready to go same-day. Appointment times are more flexible during the off-season, and often the conditions are better. Private surf lessons are for all ages. We require a private lesson for kids 8 and under. To make it more affordable, we offer a one-hour lesson if you prefer. We are well-versed in youth instruction from our summer camp programs, and cater to the abilities – or disabilities – of different surfers. Individual lessons are for all skill levels as well. The goal is to improve your surfing and have a great time. Whether you are a surf prodigy or have never seen the ocean before, you will walk away with valuable tips and techniques that you can use forever. First-timers get the full step by step treatment in our beginner-friendly waters at Tamarindo Beach, while more advanced surfers are taken to the ‘outside break’ where we can coach their wave-riding to the next level.

A Semi Private Surf Lesson

Our Tamarindo Beach semi private surf lessons are great for couples or friends that seek personalized service rather than a group experience. Our lessons typically last one and a half to two hours, and included in the package are the surfboards, rashguards and expert instruction. A lesson will save you hours of frustration. We teach on epoxy boards (not inflatables) in crystal clear water of a beautiful sandy beach. For an extra fee we can also arrange a catered lunch, picnic areas, firewood, and our pro photographer to prove that all of you actually stood up and had fun.
