Manuel, Albero and Nego are great guys and excellent teachers! Young Vision Surf School is a well run operation and I would highly recommend them! We had an awesome experience! We were all (two teens and 1 adult) able to catch waves on our own with just one lesson. In addition, Manual brought us to the waterfalls and stuck around... More

Our family - 2 teens an 11 year old, my husband and myself, all went surfing for the first time with Manuel and his team. As others have said, this makes for a great day. I emailed them before our trip and received prompt replies (always heard back from them on the same day), I reserved our preferred date in... More

All of Montezuma is amazing! But Young Vision was the highlight. I'd never surfed before so I didn't expect anything but to have fun trying something new. Not only did I have a blast but I fell in love with surfing. Manuel and Alvaro's passion for Costa Rica, life and surfing is something beautiful to experience in and of itself.... More

I have taken a few surf lessons around the world and Manuel and co are the best. Manuel really took the time to explain things in a way that I understood and was very encouraging and kept me challenged enough to learn new skills, understand the waves and also kept me safe. Lovely walk down to playa grande (without the... More

It was the second time surfing for both my husband and I and we loved the guys at Young Vision and its location. Manuel has awesome positive energy and made the days even more fun with his great attitude. Their boards are right on the beach so it's a very short walk to get into the water. We saw people...

This was without a doubt my favorite part of my yoga retreat to Costa Rica. The guys at Young Visions, especially Manuel and Alberto, were such great teachers that I got up on the board on my first try! My only regret is that I wish I had started lessons with them the first day of my trip. The lessons... More

Our two days at Young Vision were a highlight of our trip. It was a great way to spend the day enjoying the beach and water. Manuel and the rest of the staff were incredible, tailoring instructions to each surfer's comfort level and ability. They were unceasingly positive and excited for every little success, be it standing for the first... More

Almost 2 months ago our family (2 kids, one 7 year old boy, the other 7 months), spend our first vacation in Costa Rica which was one of the best holidays ever! Young Vision is located at one of the most beautiful and hidden beaches of Montezuma, there are great waves and very few people - incredible! Manuel was most... More

My wife and I have never been surfing before, but with the help and instruction from Manuel and the rest of his crew we both were able to get up on the board and spend an amazing 2.5 hrs surfing along the beautiful coast of Montezuma. We surfed for about 1 hour then they provided fresh fruit and then we... More
