We just returned from a 10 day family surf camp at Peaks and Swells. I have to say it was a really fantastic experience! From the excellent coaching to the delicious food, to the way the staff really bent over backward to make sure everyone had what they needed, Peaks and Swells is a first-rate operation. As a family, we... More

This trip I made to Peaks ‘n Swells was amazing. It was able to provide me with the best surf instructor around, super friendly hospitality, relaxation, and fresh food every day. My favourite was having a nice cold fresh coconut drink right after a long surf session. I really felt I got an authentic Costa Rica experience. The accommodations were... More

I have to say that this was one of the best vacations I have ever had. Hillary, Ryan and Karen are an amazing family and make you feel like you are part of it when you visit. The rooms were clean and simple and very comfortable- in a beautiful setting right on the beach with sea turtle babies to boot!... More

I could not have imagined a more amazing trip for my son and I! As a single parent with a 3 year old, I would not have been able to do a surf camp; focus on my surfing and know that my son was in excellent hands (eating all the muffins mind you;). I was blown away by the delicious... More

I normally would not be the one to go to a "surf camp", as I generally like to get away from people when I travel for surf and explore the place I am going. My experience at Peaks and Swells, changed that idea for me. This place was amazing, one of the most consistent places there is to surf. Left... More

My trip to peaks n swells blew me away. An unbelieveable experience that would be hard to duplicate anywhere else in the world. I went for the surf coaching which a friend had told me was like no other camp- and they were right. I can't believe how much the video analysis helped improve my surfing so fast- things I... More
