Surf Simply is the perfect name for this place. Everyone who works there works to make your experience perfect. The owner Ru finds out what you want and then makes it happen. The coaches are all great but in particular our coach Prado was magnificent at teaching two 60 plus year olds step by step to surf. The staff was... More

My husband and I joined a group of surfing friends to experience our very first surf experience. We left saying "one of our best trips ever" and we have a lot of adventure trips to compare to this one. Everyone at Surf Simply focused their attention on the guests. It was a wonderful experience. I applaud the coaches, the chef,... More

Surf simply is the place to learn to surf. Not only are the instructors / coaches extremely knowledgable in surfing but they know how to teach surfing the proper way. I've taken a few surfing lessons before I came to surf simply and there is absolutely no comparison, Thanks to my incredible coach Asher King, I have a much broader... More

I have been to three surf camps in Costa Rica and this one was by far the most professional run. From the moment I was greeted at the Airport, my expectations were met or exceeded. The instruction was great, the accommodations terrific and the food....incredible. If you want to learn to surf, call them today! They book up quickly!

Surf Simply had been on my "to-do list" since I'd heard about it from my daughter's boyfriend. Then his dad invited both her and I to join them. I have surfed regularly for 15 years, accumulating numerous bad habits that I couldn't shake and which left me feeling I would only be in decline from here on. Surf Simply has... More

I do not think you can find too many other businesses on Trip Advisor that, out of 300 reviews, 298 are 5-star, while the remaining 2 are 4-star. It just does not happen and there is a reason for it. Everything you read here is true. This place is truly unique and there are not enough superlatives to describe it.... More

I highly recommend this camp for any level of surfing. They accomodate beginners... never been on a surfboard to experienced surfers. The consistent waves and weather during winter months also really help with refining surf skills. The accomodations were excellent and the commitment to quality is evident at every level. Maybe more expensive than other camps in Costa Rica, but... More

My first time ever on a surfboard was two weeks ago with Surf Simply. I didn’t know what to expect and arrived there with a touch of trepidation. Well, let me say, this must be hands down the best place to get launched into the sport of surfing. Surf Simply made my first exposure to surfing an outstanding and truly... More

Everything was excellent: the coaching, the resort, food, and transportation. Every detail was well thought through and the overall experience was much better than what I expected. My surfing improved drastically throughout the week and the coaching I received was a huge reason for the improvement. Thorough explanations were provided at all times and I always felt like my coach... More
