Young Vision is the best surf instruction I've ever received! The beach is amazing, the instructors are patient and the waves are perfect for learning. I've had surf lessons in other places before and this was by far and away my best experience!

I would highly recommend Young Vision Surf School. The instructors are local, very experienced, patient and friendly! I have been surfing with other schools in the past and this was my best experience by far. Alvaro and the rest of the team taught us important fundamentals that helped us exceed our own expectations. We surfed the 'green waves' at some... More

Have you ever seen the movie Lords of Dogtown about young surfer guys who charm the world? This is the sense you get from Young Vision. I was dragged there reluctantly by my teenage sister (who did amazing on her first try), but turned the first round of embarrassments into exhilarating moments when I actually managed to stand up on...

I am probably the most uncordinated 66 year old man to ever venture into a surf board, despite this and with Manuel's persistence and unflagging support and encouragement I managed to stand on the board and achieve some semblance of motion.Thank you Manuel for making it a memorable day.

I was fortunate enough to take several surf lessons with Young Vision during my stay in Montezuma, and each one made me even more excited for the next. On the walk to Playa Grande Manuel pointed out various flora and fauna, and explained about the nature conservation efforts in the area. Once out at the Playa Grande, you pick up... More
