“Fantastic Trip from Start to Finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I can't say enough positive things about the week long Rica Surf trip I just returned from. Everything was great. From the surf lessons, to the hotel, to the towns of Hermosa and Jaco. Not being the world's best surfer, I went in with a bit of apprehension, but Nancy and Evie are great instructors that cheer on both your good waves and your gnarly wipeouts equally. The thing that struck me as the most worthwhile however, was having two tour guides showing you not only the best waves, but the best local restaurants, bars, shops, etc.. every day. I certainly got a great feel for Costa Rica that I know I would not have gotten without them. On a scale of 1-10, I rate this trip right around a 43. HIGHLY recommended!!

“One of the best road trips ever with fabulous surf instructions and delish food the entire time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Evie and Nancy are fantastic surfers and even better teachers who can pretty much handle anything costa rica throws their way. I spent several days surfing with them locally and then went on a Fabulous road trip to tamarindo and then nasara where we surfed every day and ate fantastic local food. One of the best adventures of my life driving through the beautiful back roads full of local fishing villages. On top of the surfing we also managed to see tons of wild life including monkeys, iguanas, parrots, manta rays, jungle cats, and local rasta boys.

“hot damn this was a fuuuuuuun trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

I spent 2 weeks in costa rica with Evie n Nancy, mostly in Jaco/ Hermosa, as well as a road trip to Santa Teresa. The trip was filled with adventures every day, getting up early some days to seek out perfect point breaks and chilling other days at local beaches. We had time to go board shopping, visit a waterfall, get to know the local areas but most importantly surf surf SURF!
