If you want to learn to surf, you need to come here. If you want to be surrounded by a crew of people w wonderful energy who are really smart, come here. If you want to eat really yummy and amazing food made w whole and fresh ingredients, come here. Awesome yoga? Fantastic massage? You guessed it... come here.
This was my second trip to Surf Simply and I am planning my third. The coaches (I had Oli- who I think is wonderful, and not so bad on the eyes, either) explain things in such a way that ANYONE can understand what they are saying and apply it to their surfing. They are all super intelligent so the conversation out of the water and out of our theory classes are really stimulating. But the hospitality doesn't stop there. EVERYONE who works at Surf Simply is so thoughtful and smart. Dani the manager, Val the booking agent, the girls who make breakfast and clean the rooms are always smiling and joking around w the guests. Then there is Laura who takes the photos and makes the video that you get at the end of your stay- thats right, leave your camera at home- this girl will make you look like a hero! The yoga everyday during the week is so good. Francela; the yoga instructor; is so knowledgeable and leads us in some really great yoga. I hold a special place in my heart for Sarah, the cook, because who doesn't like good food? She is always so calm when creating some of the best and freshest meals I have ever had. And for snacks there are always Lulu’s homemade muffins. You won’t go hungry here.
Ru has managed to hire a team who really "get" customer service. One day I was reading under my towel by the pool because it had started to rain and when I thought the rain had stopped I popped out of my towel to see Edwardo the smiling gardener had put the umbrella over me. It's the little things, and these guys do it all. Feeling sore? Get a massage from an educated massage therapist who really wants you to feel better. But not just for the day, after she works on you she will show you what muscles to stretch so that you won't be so tight going forward.
These guys don’t just want you to get up on a wave for that photo shot. They want to teach you how to surf. So leave your sunscreen, rashguard, camera, shampoo and conditioner at home (they supply all of this for you) and grab your bikini or board shorts and head down to Nosara for the best surfing experience ever!
Thank you Team Surf Simply for an amazing week. See you next year, Friends!
