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.

Amit, the owner, is da man. I'm new to surfing and he got me to stand on the first try. He's very direct and to the point, but funny and good at explaining what he wants from you. Before you know it, you'll be standing on the board and surfing.

This was my favorite thing I did during my two-week trip through Costa Rica. Amit and Merav were wonderful to work with. It was a tricky situation because my boyfriend and I wanted to do a lesson together, but I am a beginner and my boyfriend is an intermediate surfer. Merav corresponded with us via email, but it worked out... More

Amit and his guys are the best. My girlfriend and I had never surfed before and he had us catching our first waves in 20 minutes. By end of our second day, we were able to go out and paddle/catch waves on our own. Cool dude, and awesome teacher. Go here.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Santa Teresa in July of this year. The highlight of our trip was surfing lessons with Amit and Del Soul Surf School. All the instructors are amazing surfers and know how to teach you correct techniques while still making it fun for you. If you are good, they will take you out farther so... More

Amit and really the entire Del Soul team were absolutely terrific. We took a beginner lesson with Amit a couple of years ago, and he was clear, helpful, and knowledgeable. He stood apart from other instructors especially in how much helps makes your first surf experience fun; he is positive, enthusiastic and unflaggingly encouraging. We were recently in Santa Teresa...

You can't go wrong with Amit. My girlfriend and I were both first-timers and we were surfing waves in less than 20 minutes. Amit carefully took 5-10 minutes up front to explain the principles of surfing and aspects of different styles of boards. It was educational, yes, but he also made it a lot of fun. Our first day (2... More

Amit and his staff are phenomenal! Whether you are a beginner or advanced surfer, he is the best. We surfed with Amit 3 of our 4 days in Santa Teresa and we plan to come back and surf with him again.
