Del surf school is located on beautiful Playa Santa Teresa, on the pacific side of Costa Rica.

We host daily surf lessons for all levels from Beginners through Intermediate.

Surf lessons are scheduled according to ocean conditions and tide charts, we set the lessons at the best time during the day, this way we can promise optimal conditions, safety and fun.

All surf lessons are group classes with a good ratio of 1 surf instructor per 2.5 Surfers participants.

All crew members include Amit Londner, owner and founder, are qualified, certified, lifeguard and first-aid trained and certified, all are profesional well experienced with teaching surfing and very friendly.

Beginners surf lesson will set on "white water", a safe zone where the water height get to the surfers chest height maximum so that the surfer will have full control on his body. These white water provide a mellow and gentle waves, yet strong enough to take the beginner on a smooth raid all the way to the shore.

Intermediate surf lessons, when conditions allow us we would love to take those surfers how wishes to improve their surfing and move on the next level in surfing.

We tried one lesson with Amit and his helpers and were so delighted with the progress... More

I had a great lesson with Amit. It was my second surf lesson ever, and he was incredibly helpful not only during the lesson but also provided me with great tips for what to continue working on to improve. Everyone at Del Soul provided great service for board rentals as well.
