“Simply, THE BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I had the pleasure of taking my very first surf lessons ever with Amit. I'm so thankful my friend knew just whom to book for me. Amit is the best and it's no wonder everyone goes to him. He's very skilled, thoughtful, and funny! He really helps you get out of your head and on the board. I got up on the 3rd try! He pushes you to your potential while being conscientious of how you're feeling physically every step of the way. I left Costa Rica with a love of surfing and I can't wait to come back and train more with him!

“Mind over Matter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

As soon as I met Amit, I realized why he came so highly recommended. He has an infectious energy about him, as if he could achieve anything he imagined, and make it look easy, even fun. Who better to teach something as challenging and addictive as surfing? His personality and approach are focused more on the mental and emotional requirements of the sport, not just the technical. With precision and intensity, he builds up your greatest ally in being able to stand on that board- confidence. Not only to harness the sheer power of the waves, but to accept with grace and humility when the ocean repeatedly pummels you down(and it will). Because of this unique perspective, I successfully rode my first wave on the third try. Over the course of my week in Santa Teresa, he supported my daily efforts to learn and improve, both as a surfer and a person. Thank you, Amit. I'll be back for more :)
(Lodgers, take note: Del Soul is right next door to Otra Lado Lodge and Restaurant, also highly recommended)

“Was up on the board catching a wave within 15 minso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Even better than I expected. My friends recommended and it was amazing. He pushes you as hard as you'll let him. We were up catching waves within 15 mins of getting to the beach. We went back for a second day and were catching waves completely on our own! Thank you!

“Surfing under Amit's guiding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

I came to Santa Teresa two weeks ago and was directed to Amit from the hotel i was staying at.
Unlike what i expected, i enjoyed surfing from the first moment.

Amit was awesome. Very patient and professional. I took lessons for more then a week and would have taken more if i didn't have to leave.

Go for it people!!
