“They made surfing fun and easy!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I spent last week at their surf school. These guys are absolute pros! I'm pretty sure they had our entire group up surfing within 2 hours. Their ability to teach and communicate was second to none. If learning to surf is on your bucket list, look no further! Professional, clean equipment, great fresh fruit, nothing but good times!

“Mani & Alvaro are the ROCK STARS of Surf Instruction!!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I LOVE these guys! You can't imagine a more perfect setting: a gorgeous walk to a nearly secluded beach, with gentle waves and a long surf break. And then you are in the best hands imaginable! Manuel and Alvaro take SO MUCH pride in their work: from their carefully set-up surf school flags, to the providing rash guards, boards and hand-picked refreshments served in a lovely drift-wood enclosed alcove they created themselves as a refuge during surf breaks. And then there's there instruction: never have I had two coaches who rooted harder for me, lovingly yet sternly pushed me more to be better, cheered me on, and took personal pride in any of my advancement as a learning surfer. Their feedback was so specific and helpful and they always knew when to take you to the next level. I spent a whole five days with these boys and loved every minute of their enthusiasm and unceasing love for surfing, the water, their environment and their country. I'd go all the way back to Montezuma just to take lessons with them again. This is the best surf school experience I've ever had, and I'm not a beginner but have taken multiple lessons in surf schools in multiple countries. Mani is even the one responsible for finally teaching me how to properly duck-dive - a feat I'd never accomplished before. These guys are FANTASTIC! If you want to learn to surf, you should book a trip out to Costa Rica just to study with them! Woo-hoo!!

“Surfing with Miguel”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Earlier this month my daughter and I spent a week surfing with Miguel Cespedes of the Young Vision Surf School. Miguel was a terrific companion and teacher. He was inspiring in the best possible way, not just because he had all sorts of technical expertise and was good at passing it on, but because he gave us the confidence and enthusiasm to reach out beyond our bounds. We had the time of our lives.

“Go Visit These Guys!!”
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!
