We were in Costa Rica last month during the rainy season when many businesses are closed. We were staying in a house nearby Frijoles Locos and were hoping to rent some boards from them for the week. We happened to go when Drew, the owner, was there and we were lucky because he was not opening until Nov 1st. He was SO nice and accommodating--he brought us into the shop took us through his huge selection of board rentals and rented us two awesome boards for the week. He even let us buy some merch while we were there--even though he was closed. Thank you Drew! and your great staff, including Eleazar who made returning the boards super easy. Can't wait to come back and see you guys on our next trip!!

The people here are great. From surfboard rentals to arranging activities you are well looked after. My son rented a surfboard for a week and received great advise and was able to use several different boards to see which worked best for him.
Jeanette looked after us really well by recommending a great dive shop and making the arrangements for me. She also arranged an estuary tour which we would highly recommend. Enrique gave us a great informative tour and we saw lots of birds, crocs, and howler monkeys. Highly recommend checking this place out.

Great team at the surf shop. Booked a day-of lesson, our instructor Ian took us out despite some heavy rain and less than ideal surf conditions, still able to get out and have a lot of fun! Best surf lessons I've had!

We have been dropping in to Friojoles Locos during every Costa Rica trip for the past six years.
Friendly staff and awesome surf clothing and accessories. I have a tradition of buying a new t-shirt design on every visit (and an awesome hat last time too!). We’ve rented and purchased boogie boards and surfboards as well.
They also offer surf lessons.
Amazing place with great people.
