I am a beginner surfer (have surfed a handful of times in LA) and wanted to improve my surfing and have a relaxing vacation. After months of research I decided to stay at Surf Simply in Nosara. The lessons there were terrific and made me realize that my previous surf instructors were complete hacks. Surf Simply teaches proper technique, safety, theory and all of this makes you a better surfer and makes it that much more FUN when you do go out surfing. The instructors are great teachers, fun and cute (which doesn't hurt ;). They have activities for your day off, free bikes to get into town, and take you out to dinner so you get to see Nosara. You sign up for a week, food is included (and is delicious) for every day but Wednesday. Bring a bathing suit as Surf Simply pretty much supplies the rest!
