My 6 year old son and his dad loved their experience learning how to surf with the Neptuno staff. Staff are pleasant, professional and informative. The price was fair for a 2 hour lesson. We look forward to returning to Tamarindo for another round of surfing!

We booked an afternoon of surf lessons via our hotel (westin) for our family of five - - from the moment we arrived the staff was amazing; patient, encouraging, helpful, funny and best of all they got all of us up surfing after an hour. After a few hours we headed back to the shop and were given fresh fruit drinks and an outdoor shower/rinse off. In addition they offered us the chance to buy photos of our time on the water - - the pictures were very well done - - we bought the entire disc of 50+/-. Ariel was our instructor and spent plenty of time with all of us, from age 52 to 15 we all had a terrific time. We would have no hesitation working with them again. Neptuno Surf Shop, thanks for an awesome afternoon.

Went with a group (Surf for Life) for a surf lesson and the folks at Neptuno were AWESOME. They really knew what they were talking about and ensured that every single one of us caught a wave. Also, the fresh coconut water included in the lesson from the local ticos was CLUTCH before entering the water.

After the lesson I rented a board for the week for a great price...they were very upfront about the prices and what would happen if the board was damaged (thankfully it wasn't).

Thanks Neptuno!

My wife and I have both surfed before in Hawai and Portugal and attended surf schools there. I have to say that no one was as good at explaining the steps to surfing and instilling the safety and fun of surfing as our teacher Ariel. He has been surfing for 14yrs and teaching for 11yrs. He immediately starts talking about being in the right frame of mind to surf. Then discusses the importance of being safe. He then got us to get down on the board and go through his 4Step approach to getting up focusing on safety and balance. Very spiritual and philisophical approach.
Once we got to the ocean he then discussed the Point Break and the Sets and how to watch for them. Once we were int eh water both of us were up on out first wave and then Ariel continued to give us little pointers on how to get up easier and stay up longer.
By the end he was pushing me to take bigger waves and i felt confident I could handle them. My wife was constantly encouraged to take waves and push herself as well.

The Best experience with surfing and surf teaching we have had.

Thanks a lot Neptuno and Ariel. I completely recommend Neptuno for beginner and advanced alike.
