We went out surfing with the owner and 5 travel buddies. Had an awesome day at playa Yankee. Boards are of good quality, knowledgeable advice and good vibes only. One love!🤙

This was our first time surfing and we are now hooked! Jessie was extremely patient and kind during the whole day and we all felt that we got more than our money’s worth. He offered the best price in town (by far) and he took us to Playa Hermosa, a beach further out with much fewer people compared to Playa Madeira, where all the tourists go. By the end of the day, we were all surfing no problem and could catch waves on our own. I can’t recommend him enough!

Hi there, Id like to share my experience with One live surf&shop.Simply they made our holiday.We wanted to stay in San Juan only few days but we had so much fun with Gianni&co that we have stayed 3 weeks!And even all the havoc started,there was no sign of it in San Juan,really.Actually it was great cos no people on line ups!yay!Surfing is amazing there,lots of spots,nice atmosphere,lovely people...We had few lessons with Gianni and he is very helpfull,funny and laid back friendly,we felt like a big family...it was great!I will definitely come back and if you are worried about the situation in Nica right now,just get the flight to Liberia or San Jose in Costa Rica and then take the bus to San Juan del Sur and you are safe.There are only problems in big cities,no need to go there. Enjoy! Peace&Love Gabi

We went into One Love Surf School to ask for directions and came away with a next day reservation for surfing instructions. Since tourism in SJDS was low, we had a personal class with Gianni. He dropped us off at Playa Hermosa around 10:30am, where we had time to grab a couple of drinks and play in the ocean a bit before our lesson at 12:30pm. Playa Hermosa does have a $3 USD entry fee, but Gianni rolled it into our overall costs so we were able to just camp out at a personal table and hammock. When Gianni arrived, we were more than ready to get out on the water. Luckily, he patiently walked us through some instruction on how to identify wave patterns and showed us an app we can download if we wanted to use what we learned in another location. He brought us drive shirts, which we were happy we had after hours of surfing-- even on the foam boards. Gianni showed us how to get onto the board on land to build the muscle memory-- which was great because he discovered that Boyfriend is "goofy-footed" and needed to adjust his stance before we got into the water. Once there Gianni, the most patient man in the world, had us take turns catching waves. He reminded us about the steps to getting up, told us what to adjust, and basically served as a human training wheels for us until we got exhausted and needed a break. Then we were on our own to try out what we learned for another few hours. We left exhausted, happy, sore and ready to do it again.
