Hershel is the most amazing teacher. He went out of his way to help me catch lots of waves. He puts all his heart into making his students enjoy the wave. Lots of good vibes! Will be coming back!

My boyfriend and I took lessons with Hershel. It was our first time ever surfing. We went to Playa Grande and it was so much fun! Hershel did a great job teaching us how to paddle, getting up on the board and riding the waves. Within 2 hours, we were out there with the experienced surfers! He made learning how to surf easy. Highly reccomend these lessons with him.

Hershel is phenomenal with my 5 year old. He strikes the balance of being super professional whilst at the same time he has forged an amazing learning chemistry with my son. His sessions are very varied, ultra fun and unbeatable value. Hershel Lewis is an outstanding surf teacher

I had my first surfing lesson ever at Playa Negra with Hershel. The place and the waves were a good spot for beginners and Hershel was very patient and super motivating. You can tell that surfing is his passion and he knows a lot about it. He gave many good advices for improvements. Would highly recommend everyone to take a lesson with him. Thank you! 🙏🏼

If you are in Puerto Viejo you have to take a surf lesson with Hershel... even if you've never surfed before you will have a blast. Tried on my own to learn to surf and couldn't stand up even once, but Hershel had me standing from wave #2. He knew how to communicate in a way I would understand as a total newbie, and made the whole experience super relaxed and fun. The location, Playa Negra was breathtaking. What a place to learn to surf! Do yourself a favor and sign up 👏☑️🔥🌊
