Sabinka was an awesome teacher! I was scared to surf but she „cured“ me and now I love it😍 She has really good teaching skills and knows how to adapt to her students.

Fantastic experience for myself and my 7 year old daughter!! We visited Tamarindo in January 2021. Both beginners we had our lessons with Sabinka who is an excellent instructor. She is especially good with young children and was able to develop a bond with my daughter instantly.

Hey Tom!!! Thank you so much for such a detailed and amazing review. It was an honor for us to have you back. I told you that you were lucky because you were going with the best, and would have the Iguana Experience 100%. Paris is not only an instructor, but he is actually our Surf Camp manager, and knows very well the beach and the conditions.} I hope you come back and suf with us again, and now directly on regular hard top boards ;) This sport / Passion is all about practicing, so... Keep on surfing! Pura Vida!
