Our coaches are some of the best in the area. They love their work (who wouldn't?). We feel so strongly about our coaches' skills, passion and dedication, that we offer a GUARANTEE* on our private and semi-private lessons: you will
surf or you will get a second lesson FREE!*
Puerto Viejo usually has excellent waves for lessons. On heavy surf days, our first choice is Black Beach (Playa Negra). The waves are usually small, slow-breaking, forgiving, and consistently break in the same spot, in the same direction. There is little current, making it easy and safe to teach and learn. It doesn't get any better than that for beginners.
If the ocean at Black Beach is too quiet, we go to Playa Cocles. This spot usually has heavier surf, strong currents, and some amazingly talented surfers. But when the ocean calms down, the experienced surfers go away, often leaving nice beginner waves for us. It's not always perfect - with surfing, we have to work with what nature brings us. But we almost always find something that will work.
We offer three different types of classes: Private, Semi-private, and Introduction to Surfing (group lesson). You get a 10% discount for series of three lessons, paid in advance. No experience necessary.

*GUARANTEE EXCLUSION NOTICE: The guaranty applies only to private and semi-private lessons. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to exclude anyone from the guaranty if we believe the student is not reasonably fit and not over 190 pounds (men) or 160 pounds (women). A student must ask us for the guaranty before the lesson begins and at that time we have the right to grant or deny the guaranty. Our decisions may seem arbitrary and unfair, and we are sorry for that. If we exclude you from the guaranty, we certainly hope you won't be offended. We're not saying you won't get up. You probably will. We're just not going to guarantee it.
