Type: Surf Camps, Adventure
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.

Rented my board for a week, changed 3X for a small ding, lost fin and just because the waves were getting smaller... Really nice peeps, easy going. Highly recommend you rent from them. Don't go to pacific extreme on your way to the beach... they are terrible people!

We were 4 friends and we all took our first surfing class ever. We started at 8:15 a.m. Amit was incredibly nice, super helpful and very patient with all of us. He brought us in his car to Playa Hermosa. The session lasted about 2 hours . We enjoyed absolutely every minute of it. We all loved it. 50$ each... More

Awesome people with awesome boards - they'll cater for your needs, whatever level, and allow you to chop and change as much as you like. Being right opposite the beach and happy to hold onto your boards while you go to eat/sleep makes it super convenient also. I can see why their lessons are so good also considering how nice... More

Amit is the man! Although he must see dozens of tourists like us every week, he was able to make our class seem very personal and he seemed determined to unlock the inner surfer in all of us. I've taken surf lessons before, this was by far the best. There was no rush, and Amit made sure we did not... More

I knew Amit was going to be a great surf instructor because you can't fluke 172 excellent reviews, but my expectations of the school were surpassed - by a county mile. It's obvious that Amit loves what he does - his enthusiasm and love for both teaching and surfing shines through in his lessons, which are fun, safe and there's... More

Guess the title says it all. The Del soul surf school was fantastic, very patient, safe and great fun. I would recommend this school to anyone that want to learn to surf or just go out and have a great day on the water with great people.

All of the instructors kept things fun while providing really helpful lessons. You're also given free rentals after the lesson, which is great for practicing what you've learned. Would highly recommend Del Soul Surf School to anyone in the area. (Also doesn't hurt that it's located in paradise...)

Went to Santa Teresa to learn wavesurfing, got a recommendation to book lessons with Amit and his crew, this was the best recommendation ever, we were 4 girls trying for the first time and we all stood on the board the first session and after a few sessions we all rode fresh waves. My father joined us after a couple... More

This is by far the best surf school in Santa Teresa! They made us feel like pros. All the instructors are so friendly and felt genuinly interested in teaching me surfing! All the best to say about Amit and the rest of the crew at Del Soul Surf School.
