You can choose from group surf lessons with one instructor to every four students, semi private lessons for just you, your friends and an instructor, or a one-on-one private lesson with your own dedicated surf teacher. No matter which you choose, we’ll make sure you’re surfing in no time.

Tamarindo offers pristine coastlines and beautiful sandy beaches which are perfect for surfing. In fact, Tamarindo attracts surfers from all over the world looking to try their luck on some truly incredible waves. Book your lessons right here and find the package that’s perfect for you…

Group Lessons: One of the most popular options! This includes learning to surf as apart of a group. With that said, for safety reasons and to ensure you get the most out of your lessons, four students will be assigned to one instructor. That way, you will get the most out of your surf lesson! This package is perfect for beginners.

Semi Private Group Lessons: If you’re travelling with friends or family members and you’re looking for a private lesson, then this package is for you. We offer private group lessons for you and your friends. Have a customized package that is tailored for you and your group. You can even adjust the starting times to best fit you. This package is perfect for both beginners and those looking to hone their skills (if your group contains children under 10 years old please select this option).

Private Lessons: If you’re just looking for one-on-one time with your surf instructor then look no further. Private lessons are designed for you to get the most out of your surf teacher and therefore your surf lesson as a whole. Private lessons can be tailored to fit your needs and specific level. Likewise, you can choose the starting times. Perfect for surfers of all level.

Group surf lessons and all new comers will be given a 20 minute tutorial on the beach on the basics of surfing. Once that’s completed, it’s time to hit the waves to test out your new found skills. Your instructors will give you the time and dedication to get you standing on a board and riding a wave in no time!
