Spent a couple of days with my wife and 11 and 14 year old boys learning to surf (I’m 50 and trying not to be too old to learn new tricks)
Guys were great... Gary and Jordan could not have been better instructors for us newbies...patient, explained things well, super helpful and friendly
Fantastic beach to learn on...soft sand shallow waters and consistent waves. Best part apart from getting up on some waves was the “pipa fria” at the end of the lessons ....which is chilled fresh coconut water which they chop open for you with a giant machete ...hits the spot perfectly after all that saltwater
You won’t be disappointed!

It really is the best surf school we know.
Everyone is super friendly and fun, but the most important thing for us is that they are all professionals and you learn a lot with them.
In addition, the beach is beautiful and ideal for all levels.
Thank you very much for everything, we can't wait to go back!

Back from another fabulous trip to Nosara. Surfing is a big part of that for part of our family (we have younger kids and a teenager)...this time we all surfed except dad (fractured wrist). Maikol is an amazing surfer but as in anything - it doesn’t mean you’re automatically good at teaching something just cause you’ve cracked it...but he is a wonderful teacher and just all-round great guy. He’s always super friendly and you can see how much he loves what he does. Our ten year old loves surfing with Maikol...and he keeps improving - every lesson! Of course it’s not only Maikol - the whole team is amazing. I surfed this time with Gary - and learnt so much! I had a surfing moment and some things just clicked...huge thanks to Gary and his patience and words of surfing wisdom! My other kids surfed with Nelson and I had a lesson with Kalli (sorry if I’ve spelt this incorrectly) who were both fantastic too - calm, patient, lots of encouragement. This school rocks - they are super safety focused and will postpone a lesson when conditions are less than ideal...can’t wait to catch some waves again soon

Anyone looking to enhance their surfing ability or simply rent a board, Nosara CR Surf School is the place! My only regret from my trip to Playa Guiones is that I didn't start it here. I stopped at every surf shop in Guiones and no where else did I feel so welcomed. First off, their prices cannot be beat. Jordan and Michael are true professionals. Even from the single lesson that I took, I am a significantly better surfer for it. It was not the type of lesson where the instructor provided a single hour of tips and then went on with the rest of their lives. Jordan and Michael truely care and their only goal is making their clients better. The lesson started with 90 minutes of in the water instruction by Jordan, all of which was filmed. Michael and Jordan then reviewed the entire tape, wave by wave. Then, Micheal took me out the following day and worked on everything that was reviewed the day before. This was all for the price that everyother surf shop does for a single lesson.
Both are experienced surfers, no matter the skill level (everything from never stepping on a board to extremely experienced) they will not only make you better, they will make you love surfing! They embody Pura Vida and will make you feel like family.
