We have been teaching people to surf in Nosara for more than 10 years. Our Costa Rican surf instructors are ISA certified surf coaches and are excited to teach you to surf in a safe and fun way. We realize all of you are unique in your ability, size, shape, age and what you want to learn, so we personalize the lessons to fit your needs. The secret to our success is personal attention and one on one teaching. We break down each skill of surfing and teach you step by step with constant feedback so you can learn faster and safer. We also want you to learn about the waves, the equipment, and how to surf with your fellow surfers.


Our beach surf school and board rentals are the closest to the beach in town giving you a short walk.

Personal Attention & Safety

Don’t get lost in a crowd having to wait your turn to actually get a wave. We have 3 people max in our groups and give 1-on-1 training during the class. It’s much safer and you learn much faster in small groups.

Experienced ISA Certified Local Instructors

Our instructors are from Costa Rica. They are professional, enthusiastic, fun, great coaches and determined to teach you to surf. Learn some local culture while you are here.

Customized Lesson Plans

We ask you questions about your experience, abilities, and goals to determine your lessons. Our students range from 5-70 yrs old and we have fun lesson plans for everyone. We are great with Kids!!!

Great Service

We want to make this fun for you not work or pain. We are right next to the beach so there is no long walk and we’ll provide a surf shirt to keep you from getting a rash.

Video Instruction

For those of you interested in speeding up the learning curve we offer video analysis to pin point the skills you need to improve.
