Costa Rica Surf Lessons and Surf Trips, Professional Surf Instruction and Guides

Without question, Costa Rica is the ultimate surfing destination in the world for beginners to experts, due to the quality and variety of surf breaks available. Our beaches catch swell from different directions, assuring waves can be found year round and there are many sandy-bottom breaks that make it safe for you when surfing for the first time. We believe learning to surf encompasses much more than just getting pushed into a wave and being yelled at to "stand up", and that is why our expert surf coaching takes you through progressive levels teaching the fundamentals of surfing. Another big difference between us and other surf schools is we are mobile and can easily change locations based on wave size and wind conditions. Our ability to move to different break locations at a moments notice, allows us to proceed at your pace while searching for your perfect wave. To learn more about our vacations, click here.

Level 1: The Beginner Surfer
So you're ready to grab a board and cruise the ocean waves? We coach all of our new surfers the same way, starting with the fundamentals of how to surf properly. You will build a solid foundation of skills that are necessary to progress in your surfing ability as you continue to practice in the future. By the end of level 1, you will be paddling out, popping-up and riding waves effortlessly.
Level 2: The Intermediate Surfer
Once you have the foundation of surfing down and are catching waves steadily in 2 to 3 foot white water breakers, it's time to move to the outer line-up. The waves will be bigger, dropping in will be harder and the experience will be amazing. You will learn positioning, timing, dropping in and how to read sets. By the end of level 2, you will be easily dropping in on larger waves.
Level 3: The Advanced Surfer
Now that you are out in the line-up and dropping in on larger waves, it's time to learn how to make the most out of each wave and ride it down the line either left or right. You will learn how to bottom turn in the correct direction of the wave, correct body position to make front/back side turns and carving at the right angles. By the end of level 3, you will be shredding the waves.

What makes Costa Rica the best destination for a surf and adventure vacation?

Costa Rica is known throughout the surfing world as having some of the most consistent surf breaks on the planet! The tropical warm waters of Costa Rica draw people from around the world to escape their wetsuits and relax in our inviting ocean. Sandy bottom beach breaks, less crowds and safe waters are more enticing reasons to make Costa Rica your next surfing destination. Costa Rica's incredible surf breaks make a great place for advanced surfers, but Costa Rica offers many breaks that give beginning to intermediate surfers the best wave conditions to learn and improve quickly. Another reason that the beaches of Costa Rica feature world-class waves is the unique shape of the country's Pacific coastline. Many beaches in the same area face in different directions and have curved beaches to ensure that they catch swells from many directions. Most people would agree that the best attribute of Costa Rica are the local people that love to share their "no stress" culture and world-class waves! Plan your escape to enjoy the warm tropical waves of Costa Rica and relax in Surfer's Paradise!
