I was in Nosara, a place known for its surfing, so I decided I had to take at least one surf lesson. I am so glad I did. It was an amazing feeling and I only did it because of the kindness and patience of my instructor, Kaylor. He paid attention to me and my body and was able to adjust his instruction based on my limitations (out of shape and limited flexibility). He encouraged me and congratulated every little success. I was actually able to get up on the board in my first lesson. If I had more time I would have gone back for another lesson with them. This is a great school and I will definitely go back the next time I visit Nosara.

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
