All I can say is that I was catching waves in 10 minutes! Pedro is very patient and a very good teacher. I think he was born to surf and teach others to do the same. My wife was not even going to try surfing at all, but after some pro encouragement, she was in the water with a board, and she stood up on her first wave! Richard, the owner of the shop, was so generous and friendly he kept it real like hot steel! I would definitely recommend these guys to anybody wanting to learn to surf, or just get better.

I have gone surfing with Pedroabout 40 times and he has brought me to where others would not go. We have got the best waves with no crowds. Pedro is the former Costa Rican national champion and loves to teach. There are many surf guides and instructor, but few really enjoy seeing their students improve. I highly recommend Pedro and Pedros Surf Shiop.

Can't say enough good things about Pedro. It was my second time surfing and a first for my boyfriend. Pedro was patient and encouraging. He made us both feel comfortable and condfident. Hes a great surfer and from what I can tell a wonderful person. He seems to really enjoy teaching and helping people discover surfing in a positive way. Fantastic. Dont look anywhere else in Tamarindo. Within 20 minutes we were both up on our boards! Great prices too. Thanks! Hope to make it back again!

Cant say enough about Pedro and Rich, the guys who run Pedro's surf shop. Anything I needed or asked for was taken care of above and beyond what one expects from a surf shop-their only goal seemed to be sharing their love of surfing with me. Pedro had me riding waves within my first hour on the water, while I met other people learning on the beach that complained they hadnt even stood up after days of trying to surf.
Cant recommend them highly enough, and I cant wait to go back and learn more.

Pedro having been #1 on the Costa Rica Surf team for many years and now a trainer for the team has the ability to teach the very young (my 11 month old daughter) and her dad (me). He has the patience and caring to really see the sucess in only one morning. We all had a wonderful time and great adventure with "Pedro"s Surf Shop" in Tamarindo. Recommend it to all.
