The first time I ever came to Costa Rica was for the Jim Hogan Surf Camp. My girlfriend, now fiancee, had been coming to CR for a couple years and had been raving about Jim Hogan. He lived up to the hype and then some. His camp is unreal on so many levels. He's not the best surf coach in... More

We spent two weeks in Jaco, Costa Rica at Jim Hogan’s Surf Camp. He provided surf coaching for our 13 year old son who gained more surfing knowledge in two weeks than the previous two years of surfing. Jim has a great ability to explain surfing techniques in easy to understand terms. In our two weeks we watched Jim teach... More

Top great thing to do for me and my family on our Costa Rica trip. We got the chance to surf with Jim on our recent trip. He is as patient as he is talented, knows the entire country and everyone in Jaco and Hermosa (it seemed), and he is the father of James - a powerful force :-) .... More

We surfed everyday and my 13 year old boy improved dramatically from Jim's Coaching. He took us to the best beaches, recommended great Zip line tours and ATV tours. The... More

Jim and his son James were great instructors and very patient while my 55 year old husband tried to surf for the first time. They stuck with him til he finally rode a wave - woo hoo! Thanks so much!

He has the best surf camp in the area. His years on the world tour have left him with a knowledge of wave riding that is matched by no camp in the area. He is equally at ease teaching the first timers up to groms looking to make it on the tour themselves. His knowledge is uncany and money can't... More
