My sweet little family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) had a day lesson from Adolfo in June 2016. It was amazing, he was patient, clear and fun! We all got up and spent the rest of our week in Samara hanging out at the surf school and borrowing boards! We felt welcomed and everyone was kind and helpful. We... More

Awesome time in Samara, Costa Rica. Didier gave us a great opportunity to try surfing and it was a great place to learn.

Didier did a great job teaching our 15 and 17 year old kids. One is athletic and one wasn't so sure she could do it - he managed to challenge the one and encourage the other in the same lesson. Both were surfing just fine by the end! Not only that but he taught them safety and how to wax... More

Marcello was an amazing teacher. I took a lesson with my 12-yr-old son on our first day in Samara. It was our second lesson ever (our first was in Hawaii a few years ago), but he was a much better teacher than we'd had in the past. We got up on several waves in our first lesson, then we kept...

We cannot express enough how much we loved our experience with C & C Surf School. We went to Samara for 3 days to learn how to surf and chose a hotel downtown. The Surf School was 1 minute away from the hotel. While waiting for the waves to be at a beginner's level for my girlfriend and myself, the... More

Great experience with Didier at C&C! He taught our three kids - ages 7, 10, & 12. They learned so much and had a blast! He did such a great job teaching the land portion that they were up on their boards almost as soon as they got in the water. Being able to use the boards for the rest... More

We had a blast taking a surf lesson and then practicing for the next week. Our whole family of 5 (kids 8, 10 and 12) took a 2 hour lesson and then came back to borrow the boards. We felt safe and in good hands while we were learning and we felt like we could always ask for more advice... More

We had an excellent experience with Paul who was very patient and kind. Highly recommend this surf school for the quality of instruction, safety tips and ability to borrow a surfboard anytime after a lesson. It was a happy accident that C & C Surf School was right next door to our hotel on the beach, it seems they have... More

Fabulous coaching and service. My son who is 10 and has never surfed before absolutely loved Didier and his instruction. He didn't want to stop! Top-notch service that makes you feel like you're a star, and if you take a lesson from them (very thorough instruction from safety to board care to sunblock recommendations!), you can have free board rentals...

Spent a morning learning how to surf from Marcelo and had a great time! Marcelo was incredibly knowledgeable and started the lesson teaching us about the tide and water where we would be surfing. There was also time outside of the water to learn the basics and get comfortable with the skills he taught us. We ended up having a... More
