The instructors at Costa Rica Surf Camp are awesome, fun-loving people. The beginners lesson was a blast! Despite my severe lack of coordination, they helped me get on my feet. My family went back the next day and rented some boards from them to practice our skills. I would definitely recommend this surf shop.

Costa Rica Surf Camp is probably the best place you could learn to surf. The teachers are amazing. One teacher in particular I really like is Gonzo, he loves working with us and he is really encouraging and he always loves to help out and he loves it when he sees you have improved on your surfing. If you are... More

My 8 year old had an amazing time surfing with Ezequiel in Dominical. The one on one time with private lessons was great. I felt safe leaving my son with the instructor, which is huge. Thanks guys. We'll be back.

Chris, I am so happy to hear you were pleased with the lessons for your son with Ezequiel. Kids are so much fun to teach and your son was no exception! The one on one instructor to kid ratio makes all the difference for the kids out in the water! Looking forward to seeing you again soon. More

My kids and I had issue with those guys, We had rent 3 surfs for the morning. They understood that we had to be back in San Jose quickly and they tried to cheat us. After 2 hours of surf, when back to the shop,they requested us to pay for an "issue" with a surf (there was nothing to see... More
