I bring groups of college students to Costa Rica regularly and whenever we come to Tamarindo, we always go to the Tamarindo Surf Academy for lessons and board rentals. Victor and his crew are simply the best around. The surf school is owned and run by Costa Ricans which always makes me feel good about supporting a locally owned business. Victor and his surf coaches are bilingual which helps a lot during the classes. They have quality surf equipment. The boards are in good shape and are well waxed. He makes sure that they have all their fins and a leash.He also provides rash-guards. And most important of all, the instructors are very professional in the water. They always are keeping an eye on the students and the ocean conditions to make sure everyone is safe. You are in very good hands here.

We have known Victor and his staff for years. We met while staying at Cala Luna and requesting surf lessons for ourselves and our daughters (aged 17 and 11 at the time). We have since had multiple lessons and sent many friends and family members to Tamarindo with the “must do” experience of surf lessons with Tamarindo Surf Academy. They are extremely knowledgeable, patient, and thorough with kids from 5 to 65!! They are very serious about safety while making sure everyone has a great time!
Our daughters are now 24 and 18 and we are still visiting Tamarindo and still hanging out with Tamarindo Surf Academy!
