“Best Surf Lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Whether it's your first time surfer or you just haven't been in a while, I loved taking a surf lesson with Mario! The guys at Coconut Harry's are super nice and fun. Great way to spend the morning in the water and you will definitely catch a few waves ;-)

“Good boards, need to streamline ops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

We rented for 9 days. Really enjoyed the NSF boards for our beginners. Prices are competitive and there are lots of places to get boards, so dealing with the terse 20-something (blond blue eyed) made me wish we had gone elsewhere. My only real concern is when we turned in the boards they dont count it turned in til you also bring the paperwk. Payment is done in a separate locatuon than renting boards, and for a family on foot only, this was really inconveient.

“Great location - Jordy a great teacher”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Ask for Jordy - great instructor. The school is located near the beach and gives good instruction. Nosara has great waves for learning with a perfect beach/sandy bottom.

“Nelson and Luigi are the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Im a beginner surfer and took some group lessons with Luigi and then privates with Nelson. They were both was amazing - very patient but very encouraging and had a great focus on safety in the water. After two lessons with Luigi, I started private lessons with Nelson. Id recommend the privates - its only $15 more and the focused attention is really worth it. Nelson really helped me focus on what I needed to fix and how to continue to be a better surfer. I'd recommend both Luigi and Nelson very highly.
