What to expect
We'll meet at Pico Bistro (the glass cafe next to the car park) in Tamarindo and head to the sand, where we'll talk about the tide, wave conditions and safety information, before kitting you out with the perfect size surf board (we have a wide range to suit all) and rash guard. You can safely store your belongings at Pico Bistro. Before getting in the water we'll take the boards to the sand, where I'll demonstrate the correct technique for paddling, popping up on your board and you'll have a chance to practice until you feel ready to go! We'll jump into the water where I'll be by your side to help, instruct, guide and encourage you as you surf the waves; putting all you learnt on the beach into good practice! I will give you tips as we go, to help you perfect your paddling, positioning and balance on the board and, most importantly, we'll have fun and I aim to get you excited about surfing! For those more experienced surfers we can discuss your goals and help tailor teaching, techniques and tips to help you achieve these.

Best surf instructor ever!
Victor is a fabulous surf instructor and a very professional, courteous, patient gentleman - plus he’s super cool and a lot of fun! He’s got such a happy and positive attitude about life in general he’s truly a joy to be around. I’m a seasoned surfer and was fortunate to have victor as a surf guide over several days to some great spots. My traveling companion was a complete newbie and Victor taught him to surf! I recommend him without hesitation. I can’t imagine a better choice for a surf instructor or surf guide!

Learned to surf in under an hour
Jan 2020 • Couples
Great group people running the surf lessons. They are right down on the beach. Both my girlfriend and I got up surfing in under an hour. I’m 6’6” so Victor went and got me a large board. Which I though was really good service.

Best Surf Experience I've had yet!
Nov 2019
I've taken surf lessons a few times over the years but Victor was by far the best guide we've ever had. He was welcoming, super knowledgable, very passionate about his sport and overall made it such a fun experience. We'll definitely be back for more before leaving Tamarindo!
Thanks Victor :)
