My daughter Cassidy had surfing lesson on the top of her Montezuma to do list!! Thanks to Manual's love of surfing and effective and knowledgeable teaching methods, Cassidy was up surfing after a very short time. Building confidence while having fun really was their recipe for teaching beginner surfers. Thanks Manuel and the whole team for an unforgettable day!!

I really wanted to focus my one-week vacation in Montezuma on improving my surf skills, knowing that it would be difficult to accomplish a lot in only a week. I learned more and improved so much in that week than I had in all the previous other times I had gone surfing. My goal was to improve, so at the... More

I came to CR to learn to surf and had the greatest experience with Young Vision Surf School, where I spent most of the time with Alvarro and Manuel. I was nervous about surfing for the first time, but they immediately made me feel comfortable, safe, and well-taken care of. Manuel was a great instructor to me and gave me... More

Don't leave Montezuma without first taking at least one lesson from these remarkable teachers. The instruction was very individualized and based on constant feedback. You will feel empowered and successful on a surfboard by the end of one session. (I'm 54) I thought I would only sign up for one lesson, but I kept going back. What a wonderful exerience.... More

My friend and I spent several days taking surf lessons in Montezuma with Manuel and Young Vision Surf School. First off, Manuel is an awesome dude, really great to hang out with, and a great surf instructor. Both my friend and I were complete beginners when we arrived in Montezuma, but Manuel showed us everything we needed to know in... More

I spent the last week working with Manuel, Alvarro, and Sammy - and what an amazing experience it was. I went to CR with the intention of improving my advanced beginning surfing. I wanted to dig out some bad habits, learn better wave choice, and feel more confident on the board. I got all of this and SO MUCH MORE.... More

We were in Montezuma at the end of February as a group of 4 friends - none of us had ever surfed before and we we were all standing up before the half way point in the lesson! The lessons are in the stunning location and the instructors were awesome. The fruit provided was delicious and re-energized us for the... More

What's it like to get seriously hurt while under the instruction and care of these people??? I was in the advanced class with only one other student, and the board hit my face on the bottom turn... just a fluke. The conditions were calm and some of the best I've ever been in. Manuel had complete control of the situation,... More

We had one-on-one instruction and were standing up and surfing within 10 minutes of touching the water! The whole day was so special. From hiking along the beach to our surf spot, drinking from coconuts during our break, eating fresh fruit after an exhausting surf session, to learning about the history and culture of this region of Costa Rica. It... More

Our instructor Sami was great. He took the right amount of time to explain the basics of surfing. They take good care of you. An overall great experience.
