We had the pleasure of meeting Mike and Michelle last week during our vacation. They run a top notch surfing school that our girls, ages 18,17 and 13, loved! In fact, when we asked which excursion was their favorite, it was unanimous that the surfing lessons was the winner. Point Break focuses on safety first, which was important to us.... More

What a fun and amazing experience we had with Point Break Surf!!! First off, reservations were very easy through their website, and Michelle was very prompt to respond to our inquiries. We stayed at the Westin where Mike, the owner, picked us up. We had about a 30 minute drive to where we did the lessons on an amazingly beautiful... More

The setting is straight from a movie set. An amazing experience!! We arranged our lesson while planning the entire trip at home. Michelle was very responsive to our inquiries and once we arranged our lesson, payment was easily made through Paypal. Michelle arranged our pick-up at our resort over 1 hour away. When our driver arrived, the vehicle was clean... More

My husband and 8 year old son went surfing during our stay in Costa Rica. We used Point Break Surf, which took us to Playa Grande. The instructors were very encouraging, flexible and great for beginners, especially with kids.The beach was perfect, no rip current. The beach was incredible, it was isolated and very clean. Michelle brought us fresh pineapple... More

I highly recommend Point Break Surf! We stayed at a hotel outside of their pickup range and they arranged for our transportation (which was on time and for the pre-arranged fee). The transportation was $75 flat fee each way for the hour long trip and could be split between the number of passengers. Both drivers were very nice. When we... More

This is the 2nd time I've hooked up with the Point Break crew! Couldn't recommend them more highly! Bryan & Angelo are the best instructors on the beach in Costa Rica! Mike & Michelle run a great operation & look after your every need from pick-up to drop off. My surfing continues to improve & I feel like Angelo &... More

Never thought I'd ever learn to surf. Never had a yearning too, frankly, but my teenage daughter wanted to give it a try. I am no spring chicken, but loved this experience. The staff are very good at explaining the process, including a thorough safety briefing. Even though it is thorough, the on-shore training element is very brief & we... More

Absolutely the best surf school. 2:1 students / instructor ratio ensures the best quality lesson for each student. They give lessons on a private beach of Playa Grande. You don't need to worry about fighting for waves with other surfers. If you want to learn how to surf in Costa Rica, look no further!

If you are going anywhere near Costa Rica stop and take some lessons from Mike and his team at Point Break Surf. Hands down the coolest part of our honeymoon, Mike and his guys were amazing, patient and so helpful in teaching us basic surfing technique (and me being a strong swimmer, but not much else!) Even I was able... More
