Del surf school is located on beautiful Playa Santa Teresa, on the pacific side of Costa Rica.

We host daily surf lessons for all levels from Beginners through Intermediate.

Surf lessons are scheduled according to ocean conditions and tide charts, we set the lessons at the best time during the day, this way we can promise optimal conditions, safety and fun.

All surf lessons are group classes with a good ratio of 1 surf instructor per 2.5 Surfers participants.

All crew members include Amit Londner, owner and founder, are qualified, certified, lifeguard and first-aid trained and certified, all are profesional well experienced with teaching surfing and very friendly.

Beginners surf lesson will set on "white water", a safe zone where the water height get to the surfers chest height maximum so that the surfer will have full control on his body. These white water provide a mellow and gentle waves, yet strong enough to take the beginner on a smooth raid all the way to the shore.

Intermediate surf lessons, when conditions allow us we would love to take those surfers how wishes to improve their surfing and move on the next level in surfing.

I was very skeptical of actually surfing as I am not very coordinated. I was wrong! The surf instructors were so helpful, laid back and exquisite teachers! I felt comfortable and surfed about 10 waves successfully! The beginner lesson took about 2 hours. You learn how to stand up, balance and control your board. There were 2 instructors and 5... More

My husband and I visited Santa Teresa again this year and surfed 7 days with Amit and his team, it was once again a very positive experience. It was a thrill to improve our skills enough to go out to the line. We couldn't have done it without them! They take you and the boards to the beach, they give... More

Trying surfing was always on my bucket list. My boyfriend and I decided to take a class, after reading the great reviews. He has surfed before, but decided to come with me. We both had a fantastic day. I'm sure there are many places to try, and in fact we saw cheaper places in Tamarindo. But seeing the crowded lessons... More

Real helpful staff. We knew nothing about surfing but decided to just rent boards without taking lessons. The guys at the shop gave us tips and were super cool and helpful $10 a day for a board and you can switch to smaller ones as you get more comfortable

My husband and I took 2 surf lessons and 1 day of board rental at Del soul. We chose this shop because of its great reviews, and I would definitely say it lived up to its hype. Amit and the other instructors were fabulous, always felt safe, 2 students per instructor only, and really nice and fun to be around.... More

My wife and I are beginners. Amit and his team keep the groups small, the atmosphere positive, and most importantly he gets results. Be prepared; you'll be standing on the board quickly, and progressing........ This company deserves it's excellent rating.

Took some surf lessons. Everyone stands up first lesson. Super safe, super fun. I told Amit he was like Santa Claus handing out gifts to everyone. Everyone was laughing and yelling. He had 2-3 helpers there also. I did really good for a 66-year-old. His wife runs the shop and it is real easy to connect with them via email.... More

The instructors are very clear, patient, positive and encouraging. Surfing is not easy, and can be intimidating for beginners. Amit and his crew brought us to a beach that wasn't crowded and had terrific waves. The lessons were short (about 90 minutes) but that was about perfect, because surfing for beginners is exhausting. Plan on multiple days worth of lessons... More
