Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

You've found it. I can echo everything else other reviewers have said. Amit is a great teacher with such an infectious energy. Every detail of our experience was fantastic ... Just get it booked :)

I took 2 lessons and my wife took one with Amit and his team. I learned to surf and we had a lot of fun and laughs doing it. It's clear that Amit knows his stuff and can make even the most uncoordinated middle aged man a respectable surfer!

Amit is a beauty. If you listen closely the waves whisper his name. This man loves to surf but lives to teach. If you listen to half of what he says, you will ride your first wave in. If you listening everything he says, you can move to Costa Rica and open your our surf school. If my english teacher... More

Perfect school for learning. Small classes width dedicated instructor. And Santa Teresa must be one of the best places in the world for learning. Nice clean waves. I had my first real surf experience, Even though I had experience from Biarritz and Australia. / Richard from Sweden

Thanks to Amit and his awesome team at Del Soul, we had a blast learning to surf (or trying really hard, anyway) in Santa Teresa. Amit is an incredible instructor - professional and encouraging with such amazing positive energy. We loved it. Would definitely recommend - and will definitely be back!

I never thought that I would catch a wave already on my second try but the clear instructions from Amit made it all real. I like his style of straight forward instructions mixed with humour. My friends were right in recommending him and his colleagues and I would recommend him to others too.

We as a couple of total beginners took several lessons with Amit recently. He's a professional not only in the sense that he's an excellent teacher, but he also seems to really enjoy what he's doing. He was super encouraging when we did things right and always giving constructive feedback when he could. None of our questions were too stupid... More

I had been to Santa Teresa four years ago and had some unfinished business to take care of upon my return this January. Yup! I had to get out to the break and surf those elegant Pacific waves that are so infamous in this tranquil surf spot. I fought the white water to get strong and Amit was checking out... More

We had so much fun learning how to surf thanks to Amit! He is an amazing surf instructor! He was positive, fun and just an incredible teacher. He is obviously is a fantastic surfer, but more importantly in this setting, he knows how to teach you to surf and to get you up on the board. I am not athletic... More

We just got back from an amazing trip around Costa Rica. Major purpose of our trip was - to learn to surf! Upon arrival to proper surfer town - Santa Teresa, we had no clue where to start but to have a stroll around the town in search of surfing lessons. The first place we came across was Del Soul...
