My surf instructor Pete was AWESOME. So friendly and accommodating. I had never been surfing before and he was patient and put me at ease. Very thorough in his instruction and I was able to catch a bunch of waves by the end of my lesson! Also, the price was very affordable. I would recommend this spot whether you're a... More

My husband and two friends took a private surf lesson from Pete a few days ago. He was so great to work with. We each only paid $35 for a 2 hr surf lesson! Which was more than enough time, we were exhausted afterwards. We would all definitely recommend doing your surf lessons here!

We arrived at 7 pm Saturday evening. My husband was anxious to start his surfing lessons so, through our hotel, arranged lessons on Sunday morning with the owner of Costa Rica Surf Club. His instructor, Julio, was an amazing teacher - very professional and patient. Everyone in the shop was helpful, knowledgeable and happy. They offer excellent prices on the... More

We were a group of 4 who had never surfed. We asked around town and they were the cheapest and very friendly! Our instructor Chris was easy on the eyes and a patient teacher. We were all able to get up eventually and had a great time. We rented boards from them the next day and the owner gave us... More

Dream team! My bf and I came here with different surfing levels - him an intermediate and me a beginner. Diego and Lucas are supportive and made sure we always had fun in the waves during our session. Our flight home actually got cancelled last minute and they were very responsive and accommodating. They are not the cheapest but they... More

Today my husband & I did a 2 hour semi-private lesson with Mauricio & it was a blast! We spent about 20 minutes on the beach going over basics & safety, then we got in the water.

After reading many reviews in search of the best value surf lesson, I am so glad I went with this place! We walked up around 10:30 am - after being solicited by several people on the beach for sketchy lessons as low as $20 - we were greeted by Mauricio who offered a great price $35/person for 2 hours, semi-private....

I rented a surfboard for the week I was in Tamarindo. The guy at the shop was very helpful and nice. The waves were small the whole week, so I started out with a hybrid style board the first two days and then switched to a mini-malibu type when the waves got even smaller. Both boards were in good condition... More
