Extremely unresponsive and unprofessional. Had to reach out multiple times without ever receiving clear answers. And their relationship with Bodhi Tree resort is messy at best.

I was very nervous about trying this, it looked so hard. Alfredo made it easy. We spent a little time on the beach but then it was in the water. He was so patient and helpful and I did it! I stood up and actually rode all the way in and hopped off. Only one lesson but I would love to do more.

Jesse was our instructor for 4 days of 2 hour lessons each day and we couldn't have asked for a better host/instructor/buddy. With 2 different levels of surfers, he was great at giving us individualized instruction and challenging us both. We felt safe and well taken care of. If you are looking to surf (beginner or advanced) and are in Nosara, it would do you good to go to Del Mar Surf Camp (also get the photography package!!!!)

I was apprehensive about starting surfing in earnest for the first time at nearly age 40. I’d gotten a taste when I was younger, and never forgot that magical feeling of being carried by the ocean. Surfing lesson have been on my bucket list ever since, but it took me 10+ years to get to it. Lucky for me, I’d bookmarked Del Mar surf camp years ago when researching places, so I signed up for a week’s worth of lessons. It was blast. Jesse was an awesome coach who gave excellent instruction and attentive coaching, which enabled me—someone who was last picked for teams in school, and not a natural athlete—to learn the needed skills and progress much further than I thought I could in a week. Above all, it was outrageously fun!! I highly recommend Del Mar to anyone interested in learning to surf. I’m already planning next year’s trip.
