Anyone Can Learn to Surf

If you’re planning a surfing vacation with your family, your best friends, or for an entire summer camp, we’d be happy to be your hosts. We offer all levels of lessons as well as board rentals and unparalleled expertise of everything Santa Teresa has to offer.

We specialize in surfing lessons for families and all our instructors are certified in surf lifesaving, First Aid, and CPR, and have taught hundreds of surfers at all skill levels. We’ll make your surf lessons fun, easy, and safe.

What makes us a step above the rest?

When you book your surf lessons and SUP tours with us, you are guaranteed to get the best experience possible. We are not a surf & SUP shop, we are a surf & SUP school/house. Surf lessons and SUP tours are not something we do on the side to make extra money, they are our passion; our main focus. We pride ourselves in operating professionally, and being able to break things down and explain them in different ways to better suit your individual thought process.

If you are surfing at an intermediate level, we have to be more selective of where we surf, and if it’s not ideal right out front, we will take you to the best surf break to get the best experience.

Another thing we offer is good ol pura vida hospitality. We want to provide you, not only with amazing surf lessons and SUP tours, but also with the surf lifestyle experience. Come hang out in a hammock and relax. Listen to some good tunes or pick our brains about surfing. Ask us where to find the best food and nightlife in town. We are all very social people here, and love meeting new people from different walks of life. This also gives us a great opportunity to understand you better and find the best way to help you progress with your surfing and/or paddle boarding.

We’ll Help You Plan the Vacation of a Lifetime

We also partner with other local spots if you want your trip to include yoga, hiking, zip-lining, or a massage in a cozy bungalow. Ask us to help you plan a Costa Rica surfing vacation that you won’t forget. Check out our camp and lesson offerings and book your vacation on our website.
