I love Coconut Harry's! This place is so Rad! Amazing location, the best in Guiones as far as surf schools go. Super close to the Ocean. The Staff and instructors are great! Meesh, the Coconut harrys Photographer is amazing! My instructor Justin quickly elevated my game from beginner to a seasoned intermediate Surfer! I was catching rights and lefts and riding down the line beautifully! I even started to shuffle my feet around on the board to distribute my weight from front to back and vice versa. Invaluable coaching that will stick with me for life! Justin taught me how to read the Ocean similar to how a Golfer reads a Green. My ocean & wave knowledge went from zero to now very confident and knowledgeable. The surfing in Guiones is perfect almost everyday. Low tide, high tide, early ,late, windy, it doesn't matter the surf is always good in playa Guiones! Can't wait to come back! A few pics attached from Guiones and Tamarindo (tamarindo I surfed solo and worked on the things Justin taught me). There were a few other Perks from Coconut Harry's that I ought not to mention (* free pics from Meesh on facebook*) 😊😊😊 And also, they are extremely flexible & generous with the board *rentals* when you sign up for lessons/coaching 😊 🏄 surf 🏄 Two Thumbs up for Coconut Harry's! An incredible experience!!!

Really nice guys here, and they had good boards to rent. We rented from them every day and were happy with our experience.

I don't normally leave reviews, but I'm so incredibly happy with the experience that we are having, I must leave a review. I surf, but wanted to get lessons for my wife and two daughters (14 and 9). I checked a number of different shops, and while all nice, James at Coconut Harry's immediately sold me. He was incredibly friendly and I basically just got a good vibe from him. Because I bought the 5-pack of lessons for the three girls, he gave me my long-term rental of boards for free. But I'm mostly happy with our instructors. Johel, Nelson and Gabby are unbelievably awesome. They are so good with my wife and daughters. My wife and older daughter are dropping into head-high waves on their 4th day of surfing. Everyone at the shop is super friendly and incredibly helpful. The location is right at the path to the beach - so parking, storing your stuff and going for a surf couldn't be easier. Honestly, these guys have made our trip. My girls have one more lesson and I'm totally bummed it's ending. Pura vida.
