Brett was an excellent host. I have surfed probably ~20 times. Esterillos Oeste is great for beginners that want to work on turns. BUT it is pretty unique beach with many quirks so it was very helpful to have someone knowledgable about the break show...More

Trip was amazing, guides were great. Coffee plantation was a real treat and waterfall was so much fun sliding down. We really ripped along a few times and had a lot of fun!

Brett is a great guy and is reasonable with his boards. He will treat you right. He is located right in the heart of town and will have you on a board and in the water in no time.

Brett is a fantastic teacher. My 11 year old grandson had never surfed and he was surfing by the time his lesson was over. Brett is very patient and caring.
