I took three classes with Kim (private and semi-private) and rented a board for 5 extra days to practice. He assessed what I could do and encouraged me to ride intuitively, and also develop my understanding of the waves. I learned to turtle a longboard, catch green waves, and watch for right or left waves. I appreciated having Kim in the water with me--I admire his skill and confidence. Great experience.

Kim owns the show and he set us up with a couple great, friendly instructors for our kids. I had Kim take me an older kids out for intermediate lessons out past the white water. He really gave us great tips and understanding of the wave and area, very glad we used him. It's a small shop with just boards and rash guards. Boards were great. There is a lot of other shops around and I'm sure good instructors, but Kim hires great ones and has been in the area for 20+ years.

Kim was a great instructor. I had three lessons, and while I’m not athletic at all, I felt very confident in what he taught me and I felt good about what I accomplished by the end. I would recommend him to anyone. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and made sure I did everything safely.

Kim was awesome! I had a blast and with his patient lessons I got up on the board 😀🏄‍♀️ I wasn’t getting good vibes from other shops and I’m glad I gave this one a shot.

Myself, my husband and three teenage children took surf lessons from Kim. He was extremely knowledgable, experienced and great at teaching. When we return to Nosara we will definitely use Kim and company again.
