Review of: Surf Lessons
My wife and I came here for our 25th Anniversary and had never been surfing. We met Miguel at the beach and from the very moment we met him we could tell he was an amazing host! Miguel set us up with reservations the following day and when we returned he had everything ready for us. Chairs, pads, umbrella and instructors. Our instructor Dennis, not a menace :), was amazing and got us BOTH up surfing within minutes after his very good instruction. He was very patient and amazing. Miguel catered to our every need. Pineapple tray, amazing food for lunch from Veira Mar, and any drinks we wanted. Class act business!!! Thank you!!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing day at the beach surfing!!! Pura Vida !!!! 🏄🏾‍♀️🌊

Review of: Surf Lessons
My boyfriend and I had booked our surfing lessons super last minute the same day and we were still able to be accommodated ! Both the instructors on the land and in the water were super helpful for our first times learning how to surf and now we love it! When we return to Jaco or visit any other surfing town, we are for sure hitting the waves so that we can master the skills we learned from Jaco Surf School. I would recommend them to anyone looking to learn a new skill! Pura Vida !!!! 🏄🏾‍♀️🌊🏄🏾‍♀️🌊🏄🏾‍♀️🌊

All i wanted to do when i came to Costa Rica was surf. It was my first time ever surfing and Ethan made sure to be patient and helpful from beginning to end. Couldn’t recommend this more.
