After an hour I knew all the basics needed to surf. I had a great time, and definitely price is worth it. There is a lot of focus on a... More

I came to Samara to learn how to surf. I decided to take the semi private lessons together with my girlfriend. First we learned the basic principals according to the international standard. Then we hit the water. Within no time we were both standing on the board and actually surfing. Thanks to the good instructions from Didier. We felt safe... More

While in Samara, my girlfriend and I wanted to try out surfing for the first time. A friend recommended we go see Didier, a surf instructor at C&C Surf School, who took great care in explaining all the basics of the sport to us.

On a beautiful afternoon during the rainy season in Samara we set out to try surfing for the first time. We were introduced to the amazing Didier, who decked us out in rash guards and took us out to the beach. We learned all the important safety protocols, etiquette, types of waves, how to get on and off the board,... More

Our instructor, Gatto, was amazing and eased our fears as first time surfers. He was very attentive and patient, and always made us feel safe in... More

I have a had a few surf lessons over the years, but the lesson with Didier was the best. He taught me, my wife and my 3 (11,15,18) kids to surf, and did it in a way that made us all feel like we found a good friend in Costa Rica. Teaching us to stand up was pretty easy. He... More

Our instructor, Didier, made the entire process approachable and fun for both myself and my girlfriend. We were both brand new to surfing. Didier promised us we would both get up at least once; he was more than successful. He spent a ~30 minutes on the beach covering safety basics and drilling us on Q/A as well as physical drills....
