I came here because of the good reviews and wasn’t disappointed. I am an intermediate surfer and got exactly the type of coaching I was looking for and hardly ever found so far. Great help with positioning in the line up and catching green waves! Amit and his team absolutely know their business, make you feel comfortable in the water and are super friendly and spread great vibes. Absolutely recommending it and would come back any time! Thanks to the whole team and pura vida!! :)

I couldn’t have asked for better surf instructors during my time in Santa Teresa. Do not leave without getting a lesson...or 5 from Amit or Edward, they are excellent!! Their company is like one big family and they make you feel a part of it on day one. I’ve taken lessons and surfed in Australia, California, Nicaragua and I can’t wait until I can come back here to ST for more lessons from this amazing company! Couldn’t recommend more :)

Can't recommend Amit and Del Soul enough! It's so important for a surf instructor to match your style of learning- Amit was very structured in how he broke down surfing into smaller digestible components, and always so encouraging. He made me feel safe in the water as a beginner, which is SO important when you're starting out. I was in Santa Teresa for 3 weeks and took over 10 classes with Del Soul in that time. Amit and his team are better than anyone else at getting you on as many waves as possible. They are skilled at picking the right waves and making all the required microadjustments on takeoff, positioning and timing so that you have the best shot at catching the wave. We had other friends who went with different instructors, and we were all in the lineup together. We all noticed that those of us who went with Del Soul were catching 2x the number of waves in the same session as our friends who went with different instructors. We also watched some of our friends get pushed into clearly bad waves, which isn't fun. And as a beginner, the fastest way to improve is by catching more waves. At the end of the day, it really is about finding a good fit between the instructing style and your personal learning style. Some of our friends went with different instructors (e.g. the tough love style, or more theory-based teaching), and those instructors definitely weren't for me. If you enjoy structured learning with lots of practical experience and encouragement, Del Soul is for you!

Was my second lesson in CR and very happy i chose del surf. Amit really watches what you do and gives you solid advice on each wave to make you improve and you will by the end of the lesson. Very nice shop and staff throughout,

Couple in our fifties and we were trying surfing for the first time. Our teachers were excellent and we were soon standing up and surfing!
