The SALT instructors are absolutely AMAZING!!! They have been teaching my son how to surf for just over a year and it's been the best thing for him! They teach them how to breathe, be calm, and have fun!!!...as well as the correct surfing techniques. I feel so fortunate to have Elias and his amazing team teach my son. They love all the kids they work with and the kids absolutely love them and are inspired by them.

Elias is one of the most authentic and soulful instructors I have ever worked with. He took myself and my 2 young daughters out and had us up surfing almost immediately. We live in San Diego so have the opportunity to surf at home too, but I've had difficulty getting my girls up in our cooler water. They had a love and excitement after our lesson and now with wetsuits want to get out in our local waters more. I would plan a whole trip back to Tamarindo just to spend time learning from Elias.

When we told Elias we were eager to surf, he gave us his honest opinion that the wave quality wasn’t optimal, and suggested we wait. We did, and it worked out perfectly! Elias does this out of passion, and it shows in his teaching- these were easily some of the best hours spent on our trip to Tamarindo. Highly recommend going to Elias to understand surfing and his love for the sport! Bonus points for providing us coconuts after the surf :)

Elias is the best surf instructor in Tamarindo. He operates out of the Tamarindo Backpackers hostel and those who are lucky enough to have him teach them to surf are getting more for their money than anyone else at the beach. His focus on safety and his coverage of the basics provides his students with the opportunity to be relaxed and comfortable in the water and to learn and enjoy the process of learning to surf. Can't wait to return and surf with Elias again. Dave Reinhard
