Richard is the best. I have been wanting to learn to surf for a very long time. Living no where near waves has made that challenging. For my 50th birthday I made it a priority to learn. The host of our rental home recommended Richard and we are so happy we took his advice and booked our lessons. I was up surfing in the first lesson. Richard did a great job breaking it down into easy to remember steps. He helped us with the basics of starting to understand and read the waves, wind and tides. I couldn't have asked for a better lesson. Plus this area was all sand, great beginner waves, very few people. It was amazing.

Just wanted to thank Richard for such a great 4 days of surfing. If you have young ones and want to get them on a board this is the place in Tamarindo to contact. Richard was patient, attentive, encouraging and had my son ready to get on his board each morning at 6:30 am. Since we have been home he does his practice pop ups ever night and talks about our next surf trip in November. We will definitely be contacting Pedro’s again.

Richard is a cool dude who is a great coach. Highly recommend for any age or ability. His technique is one that is very positive and knowledgeable which builds on each success as you learn the ropes of surfing. He lets you know a lot of information on surfing from the basics to very sophisticated information. His demeanor is low key with keen insights on style and improvements. I spent three sessions with him and I enjoyed each one learning new things and improving. First time surfing in Costa Rica at 65 yrs old.
