Lolo, the owner, is an unparalleled surf teacher. He explained us the steps clearly on the beach, then assisted us in the water, so we stood on the board immediately. He was fun to be with, serious when needed, and we could keep the boards for the rest of the day. He seems to be a little late most of... More

My family and I just returned from 10 days in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. We rented a house on the beach and we were totally unfamiliar with the area. Lolo, the owner of Adrenalina, became a lot more then our tour guide over the course of our trip. He was recommended to us by the home owner as a private... More

I spent two weeks in Santa Teresa and this was the third surf shop I used during my stay and it was by far the best. Lolo and Audrey were fantastic. I took two lessons (once with Lolo and once with Audrey) and had a great time. The break was busy but they made it easy to catch the waves.... More

The first reason why I chose this school was the price for a 10 days board rental. The price was WAY cheaper than other shops I went to, and the service was excellent. I took 2 private lessons and both teachers were excellent surfers AND teachers(the second one was the owner himself). They also helped us a lot when my... More

I grew up in California and am sad to say that I could never stand up on a surf board. Surf lessons in Costa Rica seemed the thing to do. All it took was a little time with our patient instructor and I was riding waves in no time. There was no time limit on our lesson, in fact our... More

This is my second year in a row learning to surf with LOLO and AUDREY. They are the best instructors I have encountered, very hot on safety, and inspire confidence. I had the best trip of my life. Literally started off surfing from where I stopped last year. I can't praise Adrenalina enough!!! All the staff are so friendly, helpful... More

Great surf lesson offered by Laurent. I had surfed once before in California, but it was better in Santa Teresa. The instructor even brang me with him in the line-up, the next day. With the lessons, we had the boards for the day and the staff in the shop was very pleasant.

The instructor was fantastic! I had attempted surfing one time before and never even got close to getting a wave. With her help I rode quite a few. She was incredibly patient and would continue giving you tips until you got it. Spoke English, Spanish, and French! We took the lesson at sunset which was incredible!
