I am a beginning surfer. I made tremendous progress in a week and now would feel comfortable paddling into a lineup in all but unfriendly breaks or large surf. I couldn't surf at the beginning of the week and was surfing unbroken waves by the middle of the week but I still have a long way to go. The combination of multiple daily surf sessions, theory reviews, and video reviews makes for a fast learning curve. In reality, I felt that I learned the basics in the first week and could use another week in the surf to continue to put them to work. So, I guess that's the excuse I need to go back.

There is a reason TSE's reviews are consistently good: this crew is terrific. I am going back and don't hesitate recommending that you do the same.

I have tried many surf schools and guides around the world and in Costa Rica Jony and his crew are very professional and knowledgeable.

they select your lesson location carefully. they understand where to find the best waves in a variety of tide, swell and wind conditions according to your level without crowds but above all take very special pride in your progress. I havent met anyone that cared and invested so much thought and effort in getting the most out of your lesson or surfing trip!

Victoria & Pablo took our son, daughter and a friend for an outstanding surfing experience. My husband and I tagged along to spectate. TSE took great care to find the best spot to surf at the best time of day. TSE picked us up at our hotel and drove us all to the beach. The drive was beautiful! Though our kids have surfed before, they learned many key tips from Pablo that made a world of difference in their technique! Thanks TSE for a fantastic surfing experience!
