The SURF + YOGA + DETOX retreat was incredible. The hotel was fantastic. Clean, safe, comfortable beds! I have ZERO complaints and the trip went beyond my expectations. Everyone involved with Del Mar Surf Camp (the director, hostess, surf instructors, yoga teachers) is top notch. I can't say enough about it. The week in Nosara changed my life. I got in great shape, felt healthy and fully energized. For those who are thinking about making a trip do not hesitiate. Book it now!

As a total beginner with a slight fear of the water, I was nervous about learning to surf. But with the help of Andrea and Oscar, I was standing up by the end of Day 1, and was totally fearless by Day 2. Totally impressed. The only surf instruction you should consider!

What an experience!! Lauren and I took surf lessons with Angie and Oscar while staying at the Harmony!! As beginners they had us go out around 4 p.m. while it was low tide. Never having surfed before, it was nice to get a brief, but helpful lesson on shore from Oscar about tides, winds, and some basic safety tips!! Oscar and Angie were out in the water with us helping us and Lauren and I were both successful getting up on the board and even riding into shore on a few occasions!! Angie and Oscar's style really complemented each other. Both were encouraging and Oscar was fierce and determined for us to succeed. Angie was encouraging and constantly providing excellent instructions and tips for success!! By the end of our lesson, the sun was setting over the blue green pacific with colors and warmth like I've never experienced at sunset before. Living in So CAl, that is saying a lot - this was amazing. I even lost a pair of sunglasses in Angie's van on the ride back to her shop, and she was so sweet to look for them and drop them off at the Harmony the same day we called! If you've surfed before or it's your first time, I highly recommend the Del Mar Surf Camp!!

This is the second surf camp that I have gone to with Del Mar Surf Camp. I went to Jaco, Costa Rica 4 years ago and had an amazing time. This time I chose Nosara so that I would see a new place! I cannot imagine having a better trip - I hope to go back every year! Between the surfing, the amazing waves, the warm ocean, the sunshine, humpback whales, delicious fruit, yummy french toast, friendly people everywhere you go, music, comedy, sunsets on the beach, yoga...anything you would like to do! What made my trip the most incredible, though, was everyone at Del Mar Surf Camp - Angie, Tennis, Oscar, and Diego - thank you so much!
