Panama Surfing Lessons - Is there such a thing?

I have never surfed before and I want to take lessons. I am going to Panama (first time) during the first week of May. I will be staying in Panama City, Bocas Del Toro, Boquete for a few nights each. Is there any recommendations of where to go or find out more information? Thank you!

Try www.surfingpanama.com for info on surfing. There is surfing in Bocas, Playa La Barqueta is not far from Boquete and San Carlos is a little over an hour from Panama City.

Thank you very much for the website, however, it appears to be under construction still. Any other recommendations?

Thank you for the information. But that is a week long surfing camp. Is there any where to get day lessons?

I live in Bocas. Go to Tropix surf shop and Juan can help you with day surfing lessons.
