Audrey is the #1 surfing instructor in Santa Teresa. Unlike some instructors who can demonstrate but not explain, or encourage but not instruct, Audrey is meticulous, patient and gifted in guiding beginners and intermediate surfers through all the small details that help you improve with every wave. As two city dwellers near retirement age, we are not even confident swimmers, but Audrey had us both catching waves by day two! Audrey is just an amazing, warm, generous human -- if you ever dreamed of surfing, Santa Teresa is the perfect place to learn and Audrey is perfect teacher.

Audrey is an incredible surfing instructor. After basic safety instructions, she tought us to stand by explaining the physics behind the board so it would make sense. We were practicing out on the water immediately after that, giving us plenty of time to get the hang of it. Audrey watched us carefully, and gave us helpful tips each time. She was attentive to our needs, and encouraged us calmly. My partner and I succeeded in standing in our first lesson. My goal was to feel confident in renting a board on my own, and I do. Mission accomplished. Thanks Audrey!

I had this dream that someday I would be able to surf with my grandchildren. My son Santa Teresa would be a good place to learn to surf. He asked for the best recommendation for a surf instructor. One surf instructor stood out as exceptional in teaching individuals how to surf. Our first lesson with Audrey was informative about the angles of my board, safety as a priority, and the required fundamentals to correctly build your skills to surf. I had no expectations that I would be able to “pop up” and surf on my first lesson. The good news is this story ends well. I was surfing day one! I could not have done it without her amazing guidance and coaching. I was surfing After a few sessions of surfing the “white foam” I graduated to green waves. I told Audrey I was scared, and she coached me through every step. I was riding green waves and there are no words I can use to describe the joy that you feel. I should also comment that I am over 60 years old.

My wife and I visited Costa Rica and decided we wanted to learn how to surf. We recently retired and we have just entered the 60+ age range. Luckily, we have some friends in Santa Teresa that recommended Audrey as one of the best surf instructors to learn from. Someone with great teaching skills who teaches in a way that makes it really fun to learn! I can honestly say that Audrey made our time in Costa Rica amazing and a great deal of fun! We took several lessons with her and each time we learned more, got better, and had a blast doing so! She made it an amazing experience and one that we will not forget. We highly recommend Audrey – she is awesome!!

Audrey is an incredible surf instructor. After many previous surf lessons without being able to pop up on the board, I was ready to give surfing one last try before giving up for good. Audrey's teaching method is methodical, fun and technique focused- by the end of the hour I was popping up more often than not. I'd reccomend Audrey to anyone!
