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 is the Man! On our trip to Costa Rica my goal was to learn how to surf. I had taken lessons at another beach and was consistently standing up, then I took a couple lessons with Amit. From the moment we met he was a constant champion and just all around great guy. In the water he brought my... More

My partner and I just returned from a week in Santa Teresa where we took several surfing lessons with Amit at Del Soul Surf School. Neither of us is young and we had never surfed before. The experience was fantastic. Amit is organized, clear, patient, super-enthusiastic and endlessly encouraging - and just a whole lot of fun to learn from.... More

Amit and his team are off the charts good at teaching, getting you comfortable on a board and making sure you are having fun. Met great people in the lessons. Our family of 5 all got up surfing and loved it. We will be talking about it for years. Thank you Amit! Will definitely be going back and taking lessons... More

You can believe every glowing review, Amit, Merav and Del Soul are amazing! They are warm, open-hearted and so enthusiastic about teaching everyone to surf. You will have ALOT of fun and get to ride waves - no matter what your skill level. My first surf lesson ever was on the last day of my vacation in March 2014. I... More

My husband and I were first timers to surfing and Amit was an AMAZING teacher. He's so patient and energetic which pumped us up for the task! The beach was incredible and made it easy to learn. We both stood up on our first waves and Amit made us feel like we were surf champs. Thanks for the amazing experience,... More

Taught by Amit and his assistants - great teachers provided just enough info in the right way to get us started. Very friendly, organized and efficient. More expensive than others but worth it for the quality.

I rarely write reviews, but after my week of surfing with Amit, I have to. For starters, he is amazing. Kind, patient, funny, and technical when it comes to explaining what to do or how you can do it better. I have always wanted to surf and in the course of four lessons, Amit had me surfing waves on smaller... More

Neither my husband nor I had ever surfed before, but we wanted to try it while in Costa Rica. We couldn't have asked for a better teacher. Amit and his staff were the absolute best. Prior to the lesson, I told Amit that I wasn't very athletic and doubted that I would be able to stand up on the board,... More

My boyfriend and I took a lesson with Amit in January and he is an amazing teacher! I've taken lessons from multiple instructors before and Amit was by far the best. He's very patient and offers the right guidance and encouragement that you need. In our short lesson I was able to get the hang of turning and positioning on... More
