We began our trip to Playa Grande by messaging Frijoles Locos' concierge, Jeannette before we went down. She had us all set up with a rental car before we arrived and made the process super simple and seamless when we flew into SJO. The staff at the shop was incredibly helpful with rental board selection and recommendations from where to surf and eat! Drew really made us feel like we were at home! I can't wait to go back to PG and Frijoles Locos again! Thank you to all of the staff for the great service! PS The fam loves all the swag!

Absolutely in love with surfing thanks to the incredible instructors! My family and I had our first group lesson with Ian to get us started- he was patient and got all of us up on our boards. Then I had a private lesson with JJ and I'm hooked! He's kind, patient and just awesome- he tailored the lesson beautifully and I had such an incredible day! Jeannette and Drew were quick to respond to emails and extremely helpful. Amazing experience- get out and surf!!

Hi Rory,
Thank you so much for your super review and your kind words - we so appreciate it!
Our customer's happiness is our priority. Being responsive to your needs is important to us, because we take your vacation experience to heart. Every surf student is different, so none of our lessons are the same. Our instructors tailor the lessons to each students' specific needs to make sure you get the most out of your surf experience - whether you are scared of the ocean and need extra attention, have some prior surf experience or just want to bring your surfing to the next level. It's the best reward to hear we exceeded expectations and succeeded in spreading the surf stoke. Thank you and SURF ON!

Dalton,
Thank you for writing a review! We are so glad you had a fantastic time with JJ and felt his positive energy and passion for surfing and teaching. Hopefully you can keep it up, even though Alaska is quite cold to surf!!! You know you can always come back here for warm water surfing ;) All the best!

We stop by and rented boogie boards and surfboards from this establishment twice on our vacation in Costa Rica. Playa grande is an excellent beach for surfing and our service at the shop was professional .
