“Go Visit These Guys!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

A great staff that really knows their stuff. We made quick friends with these guys and I can tell you they are the best around. They are great at teaching beginners and will provide everything you need including board, rash guard, and even fresh fruit and water for when you get out of the water. If you are more experienced they will cater to your needs and take you more challenging spots. There are great beaches in Montezuma for surfers of all levels. If you are in the area deffinatly check these guys out and book a trip!

“Best experience of our Costa Rica Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Manuel spent four mornings with our family of four at the end of August. My husband and I are in our 50's and our teenagers are 16 and 14 and we had never tried surfing. We all had the greatest experience of our Costa Rica trip learning how to surf and were all successful in riding the waves. Manuel is so outgoing, energetic and fun and he is passionate about surfing. He really should be made the Tourism Ambassador of the Montezuma area: he loves his country and is very knowledgable about the whole area, wildlife, people, etc. The fresh fruit breaks are great and Manuel even sliced up fresh Playa Grande coconuts for us to enjoy.
My youngest daughter had a mild shock the first day as the Playa Grande surfing beach is at least a half hour walk from the town, and she had to trek over heavy sand and up steep paths and over streams, which was initially not her idea of fun, but by the fourth day she appreciated that it was part of the overall fantastic experience.
I highly recommend this experience for all people of all ages visiting Montezuma.
Pura Vida!!

“Awesome experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

I had a 2 hour surfing lesson (paid $40 for it) with Manuel. He was super accommodating, fun and knowledgable, not just about surfing but about Costa Rican wildlife and history too. The board and rash guard were in great condition. I felt totally comfortable out in the water with him and got up on my first try! Manuel was a great teacher and the whole lesson was a success. My boyfriend watched and chatted with Alvaro. By the time I came out for a break, they were like pals, collecting coconuts and pineapple. We had a lot of fun with Manuel and Alvaro and would highly recommend Young Vision Surf School.

“The best surf school in Montezuma!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

I had the pleasure of taking 3 surf lessons with these guys. They were so kind, professional and courteous. Manuel was an excellent tour guide and all the instructors have a genuine passion for what they do. I felt like I was with friends. Our surf group consisted of about 10 people ages ranged from 12 years old to over 50, and every single one of us were up on the board! They cheered us on and genuinely shared in our excitement! They brought us fresh fruit to have during breaks from surfing. If you have the opportunity to surf with this group, I highly recommend them. I will miss you guys: Manuel, Sammy, Alvaro! Pura Vida!
