The team was on time & super knowledgeable and friendly. The whole experience was amazing & me and all my friends were able to stand up on the board within the time! I am obsessed completely, and feel confident and excited to surf again! Thank you! Pura vida!
First Time, Great Experience, Wonderful Staff

This was our first time surfing and the instructors were great about teaching and helping us through out the experience. We both got multiple waves which was great! Definitely recommend!!

First time fun!

Neither of us had any surfing experience, but the instructor was skilled at showing us the ropes! We felt safe, ready to hit the surf, and were able to get some great runs in :) a fun, refreshing experience with incredible views! We also had the chance to purchase some awesome drone footage and photographs that beautifully captured these memories for us.
A perfect place for beginners and beyond!

What an experience! Started out my new year with a new experience and I have zero regrets! John, Diana, and Nadine were amazing (instructor, instructor, and photographer) they made my first surfing lesson worth every moment and I’d highly recommend them!
Pro Circuit, here I come!

This surf lesson was the highlight of my trip! I shared with them I would be excited if I was just able to stand on the board and they were certain they could get me up and surfing. On the first wave I popped right up and surfed! I was AMAZING! The pro team were terrific, so supportive, helpful and in the end felt like friends. I promise this will be the best experience of your trip.

Surfing on Jaco, even in the rain, was a wonderful experience. Pepe from Barcelona was a patient and talented instructor, took great care with my 16 year old granddaughter who was up on the waves in beautiful form within 1 hour. Nadine was a pleasure as well as an excellent photographer. Best price ever on over a hundred crisp photos.
Such an awesome & memorable experience.

Nathaniel was a great instructor and was very patient with me and taught me the basics! Before I knew it, I was surfing with the wave! Didn't even realize the drone was taking pictures/videos but was so amazed at the content that it captured. Will definitely do this again!
Surfs Up!
