Tamarindo is one of the best places in all of Costa Rica to learn to surf. There are a wide range of breaks along Playa Tamarindo and Playa Grande suited to any level of surfer. Based on current conditions our surf instructors will take you to the best location for your skill level.
Our group surf lessons are perfect for first time surfers traveling solo or don’t mind learning with other beginners in a group environment.
Your group surf lesson will begin with a 20-minutes of instruction on the beach – focusing on safety, etiquette in the water and the basics of surfing. After learning how to paddle correctly, pop-up, position on the board, choosing a correct stance and reading the waves, your instructor will have you practice on your board on the beach. When you get the hang of the necessary movements it’s time to get in the water. Our instructors will be with you the entire time, offering pointers and assistance to get you riding your first wave!
Our surf lessons include a surfboard and rash guard.
Please note: surf lessons require a minimum of two people. We can not offer lessons for one person, or two people sharing one surf board.
