I'm a pretty decent surfer, but I wasn't able to get out on a board for a while due to not being able to travel for some time. I decided id take a lesson with the Tamarindo Surf House because I needed a refresher and for the price- it was just right. I got an early morning "lesson" because the tide was high then and those are the best waves. Got a great board to ride and an awesome instructor. Since surfing is one of my favorite sports/hobbies it really wasn't hard for me to pick it back up again and the instructor basically just got paid to stand in the water and hangout while I shredded. For the price you get great lessons, a lot I already knew, but really great guys who go over everything with you and make sure you're learning and doing it the right way. You also get photos of you surfing which I thought was super cool because who wouldn't want professional pics of them surfing. Great vibes and great instructors and they have the CUTEST puppy EVER. Highly recommend them, I actually don't think id even try out anywhere else because I loved the experience so so much. PURA VIDA

This place has got to be the nicest surf rental/lessons in Tamarindo. This year my whole family got lessons from Francisco. His English is perfect and he is great at teaching children and adults. I'd consider myself an advanced beginner. He gave me some great tips and now I'm turning down the line. Had the best wave of my life! The staff working at the shop are also friendly and helpful. Family run and operated.

We were in Tamarindo for 5 weeks. Our first day we stopped into the Tamarindo Surf House and met Manuel. Over that 5 week period my entire family learned how to surf, where to surf, what times to show up the next day to get the best surf, and wee treated like friends immediately. We had the benefit of meeting most of their instructors over the 5 weeks and I cannot say enough nice things about this team. My wife and I went to have lunch and my son took a surfboard to the face. Manuel and Diego, tracked us down, applied basic first aid until we could get there and helped us get to the doctors faster than if we had gone on our own. This team is the best in Costa Rica if not the world.
