The surf school "Del Soul" has been operating since 2006 and was founded by Amit Londner the head instructor and lifetime surfer that love to share his knowledge and skills with aspiring surfers from around the globe. Surfing is lifestyle, fun, great health and also a unique experience. Del Soul surf school instructors are well experienced and professional with families and children from 3 years old, group lessons and surf retreats. We offer personalized attention and guides, and promising great adventure. Whether you are a first time surfer or an intermediate surfer looking to brush up on some skills a lesson at Del Soul will be fun and educational. Instruction for first time surfers will focus on practical surfing skills before entering the water, including safety, etiquette, entering and exiting the surf zone, catching waves, standing up, and finally, surfing itself. The goal is to get comfortable with the movements involved on land and then transfer those motions to the water. It is common for first time surfers to successfully stand up and catch a wave by the end of the first lesson. It is all about building confidence. After the first lesson participants can keep the board for up to 24 hours free of charge so they can continue to practice. Instructors are certified lifeguards and will be in the water ensuring that students are both having fun and remain safe. For surfers more experienced, Del soul surf school is offering a special advance lessons around the Mal Pais, Santa Teresa area, you’ll be joining us for a day trip or an advance section at one of the local’s secret spots. At Our surf shop you can fine a large selection of surfboards for rent to all levels. « less

All the superlatives heaped on Del Soul Surf School are true! Amit and his assistants give each client an amazing amount of individual attention and he really focuses on what each person needs to succeed. Everyone in my group, regardless of age [I'm 64] or athleticism, got up on their board in relatively short order and progressed as they relaxed,... More

becerfull!! it is addictive! you learn how to catch a wave from the first lesson. amit the guide is very professional,during the lesson he adresses each person individually by telling you what was good and what you need to improve. e-v-e-r-y-one is taken a surf bord after the lesson and goes to try alone! since you start you can't stop!

I was quite nervous but as soon I met Amit, he was very kind and made me laugh and I was not (too) worried. I was up the first try! I would have taken more lessons if I had more time. He taught me about the waves and gave really helpful feedback. I also really liked the approach he took... More

We just spent about a week surfing with Del Soul and absolutely loved it! One of us was a novice, the other closer to being an intermediate and both learned a great deal. Amit (the instructor) cures the smallest details and really knows what he talks about. He takes time to understand your desires and needs, adapts to your style,... More

My boyfriend and I had the best experience taking surf lessons from Amit and other instructors! He is an awesome teacher and passionate about surfing. Everyone is patient, courteous, motivating, and overall fun to be around! At one point I was struggling to make it out to the line-up and Amit helped me navigate my way back out. And I... More

It was my first experience with wave surfing and it was just fantastic. We had 6 lessons from Amit, the owner, and I learned a lot. Really recommended to learn wave surfing with him. We had lessons in Santa Teresa and went several times by car to another beautiful spot to have the best conditions for learning. Amit, thanks a... More
