They were very helpful and responsive with directing me to Cesar for surf lessons. He really was great to deal with setting up five days of lessons for my wife and I. The shop is small but has a great selection of quality apparel and gear. Staff was very helpful and friendly with borrowing a rash guard. Thank you for helping make our visit to Santa Teresa great!

he owners of Kina, Eric and Rachel are always friendly and helpful. That is why we always use them for board rentals and trust their advice on the area. The fact that their store keeps growing is a testament to the fact that they must be doing something right. And that something is great customer service and fair prices. The shop offers surf board rental, sunscreen, bathing suits, beachwear and more.

I rented a board for several weeks and they gave me an excellent price, even a few free days if you rent long enough. I decided to rent from them because they have an excellent selection of boards, and even some higher end boards to rent as well, which made all the difference in the world. You can change out boards when you want, they provide wax for you, and they're also just real nice people. While i wasn't in the market for a new board, they had lots of options in that department and an extensive selection of surf and swimwear too. I'll certainly go back to Kina the next time i visit.

Aleric (goes by Al) is the best surf instructor in ST. He is worth every penny. I am a beg/intermediate and have surfed with him for over a week. The waves can get pretty big here and if you get stuck in the impact zone, you're going to want someone who knows what he/she is doing. Al is that person. I can't recommend him enough. I love surfing but also value my life. I feel incredibly safe with Al out with me and I'm learning very quickly. The store is awesome - Eric and Rachael are incredibly kind and have let me rent the same board for many days, even providing free wax. I am actually buying the same rental board I'm using from Rusty in the states. It's a great thing to be able to try many boards out, find the one you like and then go buy the same one brand new. I'll be doing lessons and be in ST for a few more weeks but I'll be back next year for a month to do the same stuff. Thanks Al, Rach and Eric. Y'all are great.

This place is awesome! The owners Greg and Rachael are so down to earth and nice. They were super helpful and answered all of our questions. William, our surf instructor was amazing! I was up on the board within a few waves and then later was catching them by myself. Great service and even better people. I highly recommend checking this place out!
