Our family of seven had an amazing time surfing with the surfer factory. It was the first time for many of us in the group and the instructors were very patient and encouraging so that all seven of us could have a successful surf. The photography was top notch and we have memories to last a lifetime.

Second time learning from the amazing surf instructors at Surfer Factory. No matter your skill level they will provide you the instruction and confidence to improve your skills. From the first time getting on a board to learning to catch my own waves the instructors have made me feel safe and confident in the water. They only use top of the line boards that they manufacture. Book a lesson and go get your stoke! Pura Vida 🤙

I highly recommend this establishment. We rented surf boards (very reasonable rates) from the Surfer Factory crew during our extended surf-cation. The service was spectacular. Quality boards were always available and they provided wax and lockers on the beach that you can leave your things in safely. Also we were able to use their showers to hose off after our surf sessions. To top it all off, they have a phenomenal photographer, Nadine Rosenberg, who took photos of us during one of our outings. The pictures turned out awesome and are a great reminder of the fun we had surfing in Jaco.

My daughter (17) and I had such an AMAZING time surfing with these instructors! They were in tune with exactly what we needed help with and really just knew what they were doing! I would recommend this Surfing school to anyone looking in the Jaco area. Don't miss your opportunity to learn how to surf with these awesome people!!! Also they have someone who comes and takes the most amazing pictures with a drone. My daughter was so happy to have received those pictures and I know these memories will last with her forever. We can say I'm mom of the year;)

Randy was my surfing instructor, and was just a great all-around guy and teacher. The area they started me in was just right for a first timer. Randy walked me through the process step by step until I understood each step, why they were necessary, and repeat them. This process allowed this 67 year old to catch the very first wave on the first attempt. I had so much fun and it was just a great time for me.

We booked a private lesson for our 11 year old son, it was his first time surfing. All of the staff were fantastic! The guy teaching him to surf was the perfect person to be doing it. 1 hour into the lesson and our son was out on the big waves and looked like he’d been doing it for years. Highly recommend this crew!

Each surfer got their own teacher that stayed with them for whole lesson. Coaching happened the whole lesson for adults and children. The instructors helped get the surfer and board in position to make the next ride. The instructors were positive and attentive. It was a great experience 🙂

I first read about Surf Factory in a Lonely Planet Guide to Costa Rica. The writers highly recommended this school. I emailed them through their website and sure enough half an hour later Alan emailed back and the rest was history. I rode the most waves I have ever with Alan and John. Their approach is highly technical and they adapt it to one’s capabilities and needs. They’re amazing teachers and mentors with a talented photographer too! Prompt, patient, courteous, and the best part is they love what they do! I can write volumes about how great they are.

The staff at Surfer Factory were so amazing!! I did a two hour lesson with a friend and we were alternating catching waves the ENTIRE time! The instructors do a great job of helping you be successful, while being fun and encouraging.
The only small thing I would mention... it was extremely hard to communicate with the guy at the front desk in the actual surf shop.
Thank you all for such a fun experience!

My 12 year old son and I had our first ever surfing experience today with our instructor Victor, and it was incredible! He was so patient and encouraging to both of us, and we couldn't believe how well we did, no doubt because of him. We had so much fun, and we were never rushed. By the end of the two hours, we were exhausted but couldn't wait to get back out there, which we did later that day. The pictures and videos from Nadine were incredible, as well. The entire experience was definitely worth every penny. What an amazing and unforgettable experience. Thank you!
