My family and I just returned from 10 days in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. We rented a house on the beach and we were totally unfamiliar with the area. Lolo, the owner of Adrenalina, became a lot more then our tour guide over the course of our trip. He was recommended to us by the home owner as a private... More

Made us feel totally comfortable and got a clumsy girl on her feet! Felt safe, well instructed and had a great time.

I spent two weeks in Santa Teresa and this was the third surf shop I used during my stay and it was by far the best. Lolo and Audrey were fantastic. I took two lessons (once with Lolo and once with Audrey) and had a great time. The break was busy but they made it easy to catch the waves.... More

The first reason why I chose this school was the price for a 10 days board rental. The price was WAY cheaper than other shops I went to, and the service was excellent. I took 2 private lessons and both teachers were excellent surfers AND teachers(the second one was the owner himself). They also helped us a lot when my... More

I grew up in California and am sad to say that I could never stand up on a surf board. Surf lessons in Costa Rica seemed the thing to do. All it took was a little time with our patient instructor and I was riding waves in no time. There was no time limit on our lesson, in fact our... More

This is my second year in a row learning to surf with LOLO and AUDREY. They are the best instructors I have encountered, very hot on safety, and inspire confidence. I had the best trip of my life. Literally started off surfing from where I stopped last year. I can't praise Adrenalina enough!!! All the staff are so friendly, helpful... More

Great surf lesson offered by Laurent. I had surfed once before in California, but it was better in Santa Teresa. The instructor even brang me with him in the line-up, the next day. With the lessons, we had the boards for the day and the staff in the shop was very pleasant.

The instructor was fantastic! I had attempted surfing one time before and never even got close to getting a wave. With her help I rode quite a few. She was incredibly patient and would continue giving you tips until you got it. Spoke English, Spanish, and French! We took the lesson at sunset which was incredible!
