My 13&15 year old wanted to surf while in CR. From the first communication Ariel was professional and accommodating. Out kids we so happy to have natives teach them. It was an awesome experience. Ariels instructor was super fun for the kids they were singing out in the surf!
Highly recommend Ariel and his team!

The daughter and her friend (teens) took the 2 hour surf lesson and had a great experience. Aerial and his group were super friendly and fantastic and had the girls up and surfing within an hour. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful family experience. My wife and I wanted to take our two daughters (11 and 14) surfing. We had talked to quite a few different people who said to not waste our money on lessons and to just youtube it. Those people couldn't have been more wrong. We spent 2 hours with Ariel and Gabriella learning to surf. Simple things like how to fall off your board and cover your head, getting out into the surf, and finally catching a wave. Everyone in our family caught multiple waves, WHAT A RUSH!!!! We could not have done this on our own for first timers. Ariel spent a great amount of time with our two daughters making sure they caught as many waves as possible. That evening at dinner (our last night in Costa Rica) we asked our daughters what their highlight from our trip to Costa Rica was (ziplining, seeing monkeys and sloths at Manual Antonio National Park). Both of them said SURFING with Hermosa Riders Surf School. They said it was a great experience that we all did as a family, and Ariel and Gabriella made sure we all had the proper technique and caught many waves. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TAKING SURF LESSONS FROM HERMOSA RIDERS SURF SCHOOL!

I had several days of lessons with Ariel while I was in Jaco and really enjoyed both of them. He came as a recommendation from a friend who lives in San Jose, good call. I felt like I got the expert hands on help I needed but he also knew when to let you do it by yourself. It was really nice chatting with him too hanging out a waiting for the waves.
