I've tried surfing two other times so I'm a total beginner. Nic took us to the best place for beginners and at the right time (the rip currents can be very dangerous so going with someone who knows the tides and landscape is a must!) He gave us such clear and easy instruction that I got up on my first... More

I have been wanting to try SUP Yoga for some time now and finally had the chance to do last week with Nick from Costa Rica Surf and SUP. A group of us were picked up and taken to Manzanillo which is a small beach town a bit north of Santa Teresa. We were taken to a spot where the... More

I'm not even sure where to start with this review, other than to say Nick is the best. This is my fifth trip to Costa Rica, and my third to the Nicoya. I had taken surfing lessons the past two years I was here, and was underwhelmed with the level of actual caring of the instructors. I did some research... More

My wife and I had the most wonderful day with Nick. SUP in the morning and surf lessons in the afternoon. Nick gave us a good run down on safety and then patiently got us middle aged folks up in the surf. My hope was that my wife would have a great experience, so she would be interested in surfing...

Where to start! Went on a solo trip to Santa Teresa hoping to learn how to surf and ended up falling in love with the sport and the place. 100% all the credit goes to Victor and Nick for everything! I spent about 3 weeks at the house taking lessons and couldn't have asked for a better time. In fact,... More

My friend told me to stop by here on my last visit to Santa Teresa and my girlfriend and I ended up going there numerous times during our few days. Nick and the rest of the staff/roommates were some of the most welcoming people I've ever met. On top of all of the lessons and things they sell, they were... More
