“Surfin' Seafari!!!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a blast during our introductory surf lesson with Alejandro. Alejandro gave us so much information so we knew everything we needed to know before getting in to the water. We loved that most of our lesson was in the water and that Alejandro was out there with us giving us instruction and taking video the whole time. Alejandro is a great teacher and an all around cool dude. The next time we are in Costa Rica we will definitely be contacting Alejandro for more lessons!

“They are pros!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

My family felt safe and well taught with Alejandro and his teachers. They were very dynamics and the lesson was professionnal. We even received many videos of our experience that Alejandro took himself during surfing. I would definately recommend it to everyone!

“Surf surf surf Tamarindo”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Surfing with Alejandro is a must in Tamarindo, we saw that there are tons of surf shops offering lessons all over town, but our hotel recommended him, and we are glad they did. It was one of the most amazing experiences we ever had. This guy is super cool, he's always smiling and actually got us up surfing! He provides all the equipment including a rash guard, and came to pick us up at our hotel. Surfing is great. To everybody going to Tamarindo, it's a must do. Thanks Alejandro for all your patience, next time I'll buy the beer.

“Surf Instruction”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We arrived in Tamarindo with the goal of improving our surfing skills. Alejandro was recommended by the owner of the hotel Mahayana. Blindly we took her advice and were very impressed with the level of training we received from Alejandro. He is a very patient and professional instructor who's number one goal is to provide you a safe and productive surf experience! I would recommend Alejandro to anyone looking to improve on their surfing skills and or try surfing for the fist time!

“Comprehensive surf lessons”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We first noticed Alejandro while sitting on the beach, watching him teach two kids . He was engaged and supportive and the kids looked like they were having lots o fun .... After their lesson was over, we approached him for our own lessons.

If you are looking for a comprehensive lesson, with a patient and knowledgeable teacher, who keeps it interesting, provides excellent coaching and will get you up on a wave in no time, look no further.

My kids had an earlier lesson with another company, which was not half as good. At times like these, it really is necessary that everyone speaks the same language. It just makes eveything so much easier!

Alejandro injected humor into his lesson and understood that teaching children is not the same as teaching an adult. My kids had a lot of fun with him.
