Our family recently spent 10 days in Playa Hermosa, near Jaco, Costa Rica, and spent 3 full mornings with Armel and his instructors. In all, 8 of us took a lesson or two with Armel, and none of us had any experience. He and David and Marcel were patient and very professional, especially with the young boys (ages 8 and 10). His lovely wife picked is up at our hotel each time, and drove us to Jaco beach, where the waves were perfect for beginners. Everyone was able to get up on the board and surf, and the little ones were by far the most successful. Armel's enthusiasm was infectious, and the boys loved his encouragement and all want to come back and become real surfers. 6 of our group (2 moms and 4 wee lads) also took advantage of Armel's snorkeling tour, and all agreed it was their most memorable adventure. There was nothing touristy about the location and everyone felt safe during the whole trip. Big thanks to Armel, we highly recommend him for your surfing adventures!
