i have just spent at week at Giants Foot Surf and had fantastic time. It is in a beautiful beachside spot, the surf guides are great and found us some of the best waves of our lives, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. It is all run by Tara and Trevor who set the tone for the whole place with their detail and passion for the surf, the county and their lodge. They also can arrange travel which i found hugely helpful. i wouldn't hesitate in recommending everything about Giants Foot, as great way to surf and see a very beautiful county. Thanks for a great time

David! You're missed here at Giant's Foot! I've had to find someone else to pour a glass of wine for at sunset. Ok, sometimes that other glass is just an extra glass for me! Please do come back to see us again. Much love!

I had an amazing stay at GFS! Within an hour of my arrival, I was surfing a beautiful sunset beach break. Tara and Trevor were welcoming, attentive and communicative and took care of all the logistics. With their personal touch, the surf camp has a more intimate feel. It really was a true vacation! I didn't need to worry about my next meal, as I was always being fed yummy food. I did not need to research or worry about tide tables and swell charts as the guides took charge of deciding the best surf options, and would drive us out or take us for a ride on the boat to the local working breaks. I loved surfing Panga Drops with rainbows in the distance and Playa Amarilla at sunset. There are so many different wave options in this part of Nica, and it is so much better traveling by boat and getting dropped off right in the lineup! (Plus, this way you get to some of the breaks located on private access beaches.) The camp set up was all chill and there are plenty of hammocks to lounge in between sessions. One thing that I think is extra special about GFS is how much the locals love working for Tara and Trevor. This I learned through my conversations with the staff, and you can tell in that in their little time as the new owners, they have made positive contributions and solid relationships and to the local Playa Grande community.

I stayed at GFS last week. The camp is nestled in a beautiful secluded spot on the beach with amazing views and gorgeous sunsets. The owners Trev and Tara are amazing people. So attentive and genuinely invested in doing everything they could do to ensure my stay was the amazing. The staff are all so friendly. The surf guides Kevin and Christian are awesome. Even the pets are awesome. You'll love Tina. The cat. Thanks GFS! See you soon!

This trip was definitely the best surf trip I've been on! The surf guides Christian and Luke were dialed into where the best spots would be given any swell, tide, and wind! They were always making sure we got to cover whatever we wanted to do that day. We had a blast with the whole gang including Armando and Claudia on the boat and it was great having Claudia to take pictures while we were in the water! Having breakfast, lunch, and dinner prepared for us was quite the treat and the food was incredible. Pulled pork tacos at Trevor & Tara's house and Burger night were probably my favorites but compliments to the chefs on every other meal! Healthy and filling! Trevor and Tara keep the camp very clean and have done a great job making the place feel like a genuine surf camp! Highly recommend a stay!
