We thoroughly enjoyed 5 days of surf lessons from Amit and his amazing team! The best part was how we were in the water the majority of time, so we quickly learned how to get up on the board. By our last day, my husband was catching waves on his own with some vocal coaching. I needed a little bit... More

My girlfriend and I ended up taking two lessons with the Del Soul team. Amit and his team are great, and Playa Hermosa is an amazing place to learn to surf. Post-surf coconut water and ceviche was also a plus! Would definitely go back.

If want to learn to surf in Santa Teresa, this is where you should start. Amit and his team are very professional, and will guide you from the basics to that moment when you stand up on your board and feel that you can surf. I recommend Del Soul to anyone who want to learn the sport.
