During our first surf lesson ever we were instructed by Nego. He gave us a crash course and during that first lesson we both got up on our boards several times and was able to surf the waves at Playa Grande.

This was our first surf lesson ever! It was amazing! Nego and Marlon were very good. They explained everything very well, were patient and gave us plenty of time to learn. Surfing was so much fun, that was probably the most favorite activity I did on the whole trip! Nego also climbed a tree and got us about six coconuts... More

The surf instruction was amazing. Manuel and Alvaro, the owners and all the other instructors, Inego & Marlin were so great at breaking it down so that everyone could “pop up” and successfully surf the foamies! It was so much fun and easier than we thought, but I think it was due to the superior instruction and not just our... More

Marlin helped my 9 year old son, who was initially timid about surfing, get comfortable and on the board within minutes. He had a blast, and I had a great time watching them. We will be back to take longer lessons, I can't believe we only booked one day! It was great.

I don't think my surfing experience could have been any better than it was last week & that's because of the guys at Young Vision. I had some surfing experience prior to the trip but usually developed bad habits on my own so I thought a lesson would be a good idea. That it was. On day one they patiently... More

An amazing experience, from start to finish. The instructors at Young Vision Surf shared their skill, passion, and friendship. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Muchas gracias to Manuel, Alvaro, Marlin and all of the instructors at Young Vision for welcoming us into the surfing family! Pura Vida, Jeff and Jackie

The place I was staying in town contracted Young Vision for our surf lessons. First and foremost the guys are professional. "This is an extreme sport" we are told day one. That being said, the progression for five days is perfect: how to stand on a board, how to turn around in the water, how to paddle, how to catch... More

Such an incredible experience. I was so looking forward to learning to surf while in Costa Rica but was also a little bit nervous. Nego, Alvaro and Manuel were all incredible.

I had such an amazing experience with Young Vision Surf School! I had never surfed before and took 4 lessons with them. I felt safe and had so much fun! Every lesson progressed in a manageable way so I could feel confident on the water everyday. Definitely check them out if you are in Montezuma!
