Find Your Style
Enjoy the full surf experience. We offer practical, personalized surf coaching to help all ages and abilities find and improve their surfing style.
We take a fun, straightforward approach to surf coaching — using techniques rooted in the “9 Steps of Surfing” — while sharing the surfer lifestyle, its culture and a love of the ocean.
You’ll gain the know-how and skills to catch more waves, ride them better, and continue to progress after your stay with us, and connect with the local surf scene in Costa Rica.
We provide a complete 1:1 surfing program for each guest, personalized to their goals. Whether you’re looking to stand up for the first time, carve a wave, or get barreled, we’ll help you safely get the most out of your surfing.
Each of your lessons is filmed by a professional surfing videographer. Afterwards, we review your session and identify ways to improve your technique. You’ll have full access to these to rewatch on your own, and share with others.
We don’t just help you ride waves. We show you how to read the ocean to catch the best waves by yourself. This includes navigating the lineup, understanding tides and set formations, getting in ideal position, and staying safe in the water.
Our coaching goes beyond being in the water. We’ll also give you a crash course in buying surfboards, finding surf spots, and getting your surf gear, as well how to apply everything you’ve leaned to different locations, breaks and styles.
When Corky Carroll – surfing’s first pro surfer – helped start our surf school he developed a program called the “9 Steps of Surfing.” This system, applicable to every ability level, guides students through nine fundamental techniques to help them progress. We use Corky’s system today as the foundation of our surf coaching.
