What you'll do

We will meet at Hotel Villa Amarilla, where we will discuss the conditions- tide, wind, waves, etc. There you will change into a rash guard, put on sunblock, and store your belongings. Then we'll head to the beach, which is just a few steps away, and start the lesson on land. We will go over how to stand on the board, where to put your weight, safety tips, and what we will be doing in the water. A little practice popping up in the sand and then we'll head to the water to start putting everything you just learned to the test! There I will accompany you in the waves and we'll start surfing!
Other things to note
Bring your bathing suit, a towel, sunscreen (zinc), water and snacks as needed and a camera!

Such a great experience! For years I’ve been wanting to learn to surf, but it’s never worked out. I booked this excursion last minute (the night before) and it was the best decision. Another couple signed up, but decided the waves weren’t big enough and rescheduled their lesson. That left me as the only other participant and essentially getting a private lesson from Joshua. I definitely recommend learning to surf here!

Had a great time. My dad and I were beginners and honestly not great but we got a few good runs thanks to our teacher Mathis who was very patient with us and personable as well. Highly rec if you’d like to try surfing and want a good workout while on vacation.

Both instructors were great and helpful. They took the time to make sure we were able to get up on the board and surf. Would definitely go back to them for another lesson.

Great experience! My friend and I had such a great time. We had a group of five people, so we got two instructors that made sure everybody received enough attention. It was also a good workout. At the end of the lesson we were exhausted but happy :)

Eymhus was by far the best surf instructor I’ve had so far in Costa Rica! I learned more today than I have in my several previous lessons combined. He’s encouraging, knowledgeable, and will push you to put your all into it! 10/10 recommend
