Spent one week in Montezuma with a Surf-and-Yoga package deal. Can only recommend High Tide / Mauricio for surfing. He is v professional, patient (thanks!) and great to improve your surfing skills. That's the kind of teacher you want to have. I had a great time - thanks again!! =)

It was a super-nice and fun surfweek. Mauricio is a great teacher, very professional, patient and calm. You feel save from the very first moment. He knows how to teach and helps whenever needed. Also Randall is super nice and knows how to make you stand up:). Thank you for that experience. I would recommend Mauricio to everyone who wants... More

Unfortuanlety I had just one lesson with Mauricio because I didn't have enough time in Montezuma. He is an awesome surfer and knows how to teach. The first wave I tried to ride, it succeed and I stood up. You have also the possibility to rent a board. Maybe after some lessons you ca try it on your own. The... More

I signed up for a whole week of surf lessons in Montezuma and I was never disappointed. Mauricio and Blue are awesome. Everyday we would meet-up in town, then walk 45 minutes to Playa Grande where the surf boards were already waiting for us. There were always decent waves, no rocks and the water was warm, it's a great beginner... More

I was surfing never before, but Mauricio Saborio knew how to explain it in such a way that after a short while I catched my first waves. It was a great experience. From Montezuma we walked up to the surf location - walk of about 20 minutes. There we collected the boards and went to the beach. First a clear... More

Mauricio, the instructor, was on his day off, trying to surf by himself when we approached him to rent us a board. He was the nicest guy and not only rented us the boards but also gave me a surf lesson. I had surfed a couple of times, but I was not good at it at all. That afternoon I... More

We booked through a tour company but feel it would've been great to book direct - had we known about High Tide (they have a Facebook page - not sure if you can do it via that?) Mauricio stands out from most of the competition...you'll go on a beautiful walk to get from Montezuma to Playa Grande which is where... More

I came into Montezuma after a disappointment time in Jaco. After all that I had heard about how great the waves were in Costa Rica I was sorry to see what was at my first destination. I checked out the surf report and it said that there would be 2.5 foot waves which is perfect for me (i like waves... More
