Our family had an amazing experience learning to surf here in 2013 from Hillary and her team of professional instructors. That trip ranks as the best family vacation we have ever had. All four of us learned to surf: mom, dad, 13-yr-old daughter and 10-yr-old daughter. Two years later, I tried another surf school a little closer, in Puerto Rico.... More

As first time surfers (and full time computer geeks), I was a bit nervous about taking my family on a surf vacation. What if we didn’t like surfing, what would we do then? What would my boys of 6 and 8 do if they couldn’t do it? Fortunately, I didn’t really need to be worried about that at all. The... More

I found myself waking up naturally at 5:45 every morning just out of pure... More

The family at Peaks n' Swells creates a magical experience unlike anything I've ever had before. Imagine your best friend inviting you to their secret garden in Costa Rica, complete with private bungalos, and incredible surf instructors. And these instructors don't just sit in the water and push you into waves, they break down the sport and make you better,... More

I never imagined that I would surf. It was just not going to be one of those things a girl from CT was destined to do. Then I had kids. Not sure how, but my son turned into a skater boy who was begging to surf........ My kids ages are 8, 10 and 14. We have been on several family... More

Healthy, delicious food, amazing surf coaching, Oceanside Yoga & much needed down time are the perfect balance. This family run business has a very warm and friendly vibe with a subtle drive to...

PNS was an amazing experience -incredible food, fantastic coaching, cozy/beautiful accomodations, yoga and amazing people!!! My surfing improved more than I ever imagined and I loved the extra feedback from the video analysis, photos and pool sessions. The staff are amazing and work very hard to make it an incredible experience. Best last minute decision we ever made.
