I've taken a couple of lessons from Toro at Blue surf adventures, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I am very much a beginner, Toro is very patient, teaches in a friendly and positive way, and ensures the student is having fun and learning at their own speed. If you want to give surfing a try, take a lesson... More

We just returned back to the states from an incredible trip to Costa Rica, the highlight for us was our time in Mal Pais and my surf lesson with Toro! I learned and improved more in one private lesson than I have in 6 lessons back home. Toro was kind, patient and genuinely passionate about improving my skills but more... More

A perfect vacation needs a cocktail of different “ingredients” to be perfect. Toro and his team exceeded our expectation and delivered an amazing stay…room, hospitality, location, cleaning, service, breakfast, all just perfect. We will come back again and again and again. And for those of you that would like to improve your surfing skills, you will not find anyone that... More

Spent a week with Ana, Toro and the gang at Blue Surf the end of this past June. The whole team is incredible. Ana, Nikki, Toro, and Domingo especially made my trip both exciting and easy. Don't let the 'rainy' season scare you away! The weather is great, water is warm and all the local shop and restaurant owners are... More

I had an awesome time learning the basics of surfing. Toro was a wonderful instructor going over everything from safety to tips on next steps to keep improving. He had me up on my board in only a few tries. The best part was we weren't even staying at blue surf sanctuary and they were still very inviting and helpful... More

A surf lesson with Toro is more than just a confidence boost or a hired hand to push you in the waves. He offers insight into the ocean currents and safety while sharing ideas and insight that take the concept of surfing to the next level. Toro is a true waterman. After several surf lessons with other instructors, things finally... More

Blue Surf is in an ideal location just a few steps away from one of the breaks in Santa Teresa. The lead surf instructor, Toro, could not be better. He's a nice guy who is a pleasure to be around and he is committed to helping you find great surf and improve while you are out there. He knows all... More
