Pablo and Tomas were absolutely fantastic. Their fun personalities and extensive experience made this surfing lesson a blast for two first-time surfers. Highly recommend!
Exceeded our expectations!

This exceeded our expectations! Pablo and his guys were awesome, and there was a strong emphasis on safety. All 5 in our family were able to get on the board quickly with no previous experience!

We booked this pretty last minute, just an hour before 2, Pablo texted me back soon after to let us know he’d come pick us up. it was a great last minute decision! Taught by a local who is such a nice guy, lots of great tips for surfing and staying safe, very patient teacher too.
I’ll be looking forward to surfing again soon here, and back at the Oregon coast I call home.
He also gave us some great recommendations for where to eat and good spots for surfing on the pacific coast of Costa Rica.
Take these lessons! You won’t regret it!

Awesome experience! Pablo is the best and Luis did a great job also. We both caught waves and can’t wait to do it again.
Best day of our vacation!

Alright people, stop what you’re doing, adjust your plans, and schedule a surfing lesson with Pablo and his team in Manuel Antonio. Our little mid-western family (my husband, two kids (10 & 15) and myself) had never surfed before and were somewhat intimidated to learn. But we were in Costa Rica- ¡pure vida!
Pablo is a local guy who you’ll want to hang out with your entire trip. He’s incredibly informative and safe when it comes to the lesson itself, and in the end just wants everyone to feel successful, supported and having a great time. This was definitely true for my family as we all said it was the best day of our vacation (and it was raining!)
Take a lesson, learn about Manuel Antonio and Costa Rica from a sincere guy who knows and loves the area.
