Go learn at Puro!

Puro Surf was awesome for both surf lessons and yoga. I was brand new at surfing, and Richie was encouraging, patient and kind. And knowledgeable! Highly recommend!

Best surf lesson I’ve ever had
Mar 2021 • Couples
An excellent place to learn how to improve your surfing!! I’ve tried surfing for a few years now but never really got good and was never confident. Richie helped me and my husband relearn the basics and now we can both see an improvement in ourselves. Super fun way to spend the day too, nice people and good vibes all around!

First timer
Mar 2021 • Solo
A few weeks ago, I nervously tried a surfing lesson. I could not have asked for a better coach and experience as a first timer. Richie was extremely detailed, patient, and answered all of my questions. Once we were in the water, Richie eased my doubts and was completely supportive. It was such a great time and he had so much skill and knowledge to share! With his help, I was able to catch my first waves (yes, plural) ever.

Surf City Here We Come
Jan 2021 • Couples
My boyfriend and I stumbled upon his place going down a rabbit hole on YouTube, dreaming of life after quarantine. As soon as travel restrictions lifted we packed our bags and headed to Puro Surf for a one week surf academy. El Salvador itself is a beautiful country and Puro Surf was no different. The resort had everything we wanted, including things we didn’t know we needed...cue the Pupusas! The academy was perfectly curated based on our skill levels and the instructors were incredible. (Shout out to Richie & Marcelo!)
We had an amazing week at Puro Surf that included surfing every day, yoga, gymnastics and hiking to the Tamanique Waterfalls. An ice bath & massage were also part of the experience. All of these things were accompanied by beautiful pool views and beach walks in our down time.
We had the most amazing experience and met some of the coolest people we now know. To all the staff at Puro Surf, thank you for a fantastic vacation! You truly made our trip what it was and we are so grateful for your hospitality. Until next time🤙🏽

Take a surf lesson with Richie!
Nov 2019
It was my first time surfing and I was quite nervous, but Richie (an instructor at Puro Surf) instructed me and I had a very successful first day in the water. He is an amazing surfer himself so with his instruction I was able to learn methods to best stand on the board, turn the board, and read the waves. I highly recommend working with him no matter what level you are- his lessons are so insightful!

Day Pass
Mar 2020 • Business
We went here for the day. It costs $25 plus you have to spend at least $20 at the restaurant for a total of $45 to access all the amenities. The place is beautiful. The infinity pool overlooks the the ocean. Great beach access comfortable chairs and great service. Worth every penny. The food was really good too. Only negative is the traffic leaving the resort. Make plans for the traffic. Highly recommend this resort.

Choose Richie!
Feb 2020 • Couples
Hi guys!

Just wanted to share my experience with Richie, the coolest surf teacher one can get.
A couple years back, while on vacation in Tenerife, me and my boyfriend decided to try surfing for the first time. We got a private lesson with Richie and I couldn’t be more thankful for that.
He was really calm, funny, patient and always explained what we have to do in order to ride those waves. He adapted his teaching for a better understanding and bigger chance of succeeding. It is all about knowing what your student needs in order to succeed. Honestly I didn’t think I could do it after just one lesson, but I totally did. And it was all because of him!
Highly recommend! 🍀🏄🏻‍♀️🏄🏻‍♂️

Paradise for a week
Feb 2020 • Solo
The surf instructors are profoundly knowledgeable. They had me catching waves and feeling confident in the water after a 10 year break from surfing. Their video analysis, access to breaks for your skill level, and friendliness was next level. I recommend richie. He went above and beyond to help me, he used mat sessions to help with my pop up, video analysis to fine tweak and correct my posture. He even used breathing techniques and visualization to prepare for catching waves. I highly recommend Richie but the other instructors seemed great as well 🏄🤙🏾
And you can’t beat the infinity pool overlooking the beach break and nice rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Richie is epic!!!
Nov 2019 • Couples
My husband & I stayed at Puro Surf for our honeymoon and while my husband surfs already, I had never done anything more than stand up in white water. After two days of starting with that, some dry land training and learning the proper technique & ‘low finish’ with Richie, we went to a mellow point break with a nice channel where you could pretty easily paddle out of the breaking waves if you needed to. I caught at least 5 fresh waves during that session thanks to my awesome coach who set up in the right spot and told me when to paddle my ass off (and they give you a lil push). Anyway, it was epic and now I’m hooked! You guys rock. Thank you for being so awesome! Yewwwwww 🤙🏼

Awesome weekend!
Jan 2020
Had a blast staying at Puro for a weekend...relaxing, beautiful and plenty of fun with all the water activities on hand. Worked great for those of us who wanted to relax (beers at the pool), and those who wanted to do something active (yoga, surf lessons, etc.). Staff is top notch. Highly recommend!
