I went to Costa Rica to learn how to surf (at age 54) and was lucky enough to get Jordan at Coconut Harry's as my instructor. He was easy going, thorough, knowledgeable and fun. Easy to trust. While I didn't become an excellent surfer in three short days, I did get up on the board a few times, and that just made me want to learn more. I plan to return in a few months for a full week of lessons. Totally great place.
