Nothing but great things to say about Aqua Tibia Surf School! We signed up for a class with Andrew the day we arrived and scheduled it for the next morning's low tide. My girlfriend has never surfed before and I have only done it a handful of times myself but decided to just start fresh as if it was my first time.
Andrew did a great job recognizing each person in the groups skill level and what adjustments we should make to really start riding correctly. So much so, that all 3 in the group had some pretty good rides by the end of the class!
It was such an amazing experience that we are already planning our next trip down there.
*Side note: In addition to being a great instructor, Andrew recommended a fantastic hotel for us to stay at while we were there. Yes, we booked a surf class before we booked a hotel, which should tell you where our priorities were while we were down in Nosara...haha
