My girlfriend and I (both first timers) had a surf lesson with these guys and liked it so much we went back every day that week! They had both of us standing and catching waves within the first session.

If you are trying to decide where to get lessons in Santa Teresa, definitely go here! Amit and the whole crew are phenomenal teachers and really friendly and encouraging. Great times all round. Thanks! We will be back again.

Everyone at del soul is amazing both my wife and I had such an enjoyable session that we sign up our 3 kids the very next morning. Everyone at the school are very friendly and encouraging. Our kids who were very apprehensive of the lesson were quickly put at ease and were all able to catch waves during their very first lesson. They couldn't wait to get back out!

My boyfriend and I had a surfing lesson from Amit at Del Soul this week and we were so impressed at the professionalism and passion he had for us as his students. My boyfriend had never surfed before and myself only once before, Amit brought the boards to our hotel and when we improved he offered to change the boards for us to suit our level. He went above and beyond giving us just a surf lesson, he told us so much valuable information on the area and what time to go surfing here and there. We improved a lot in a short amount of time, and we believe it was a lot to do with Amits surfing and teaching experience. I would recommend Del Soul to anybody!

We had a blast. It was our first time surfing. Del Soul crew was helpful and supportive. We were standing up catching waves in no time. Option to keep the board for 24 hours added to the value. Thanks Amit!

Absolutely love these guys - we found them on Trip Advisor and I'm so happy we went with them. Also great that they let you keep the surf boards for 24 hours. We went back the next day and surfed up at playa hermosa all day (where they took us to learn). The waves there are perfect for a beginner. It was my first time trying to surf - and even before that I had only been swimming in the ocean two or three times. They made me feel completely comfortable and confidant with the water. The first time I stood up on the board was an amazing feeling. If you're debating taking a lesson, go with these guys. They really pay attention to what your body is doing and give you good instructions on how to better your stance, balance and overall momentum.
