This tour is weather dependent and may be cancelled due to inclement weather. If your surf lesson does cancel due to bad weather, then you will not be charged. Likewise, this tour can be very popular during high season so we usually ask that you can book several days in advance. If you book within a few days of your surf lesson between December and April/June and August, it may be possible that we may have to either cancel or reschedule. With that said, we will do our best to accommodate you (please note you will not be charged until the date of your surf lesson).


8.00am / 10.00am / 1.00pm / 3.00pm

Meet your surf instructors at Iguana Surf Camp & Surf Shop where you will be given a rash guard (surf t-shirt) and soft-top surfboard. You will also be given a locker to store your belongings before starting your lesson. Your instructors will then guide you to Tamarindo Beach to begin your out-of-water training. This will go over the basics including paddling correctly, popping up, positioning on the board, correct stance, and reading the waves.


8.20am / 10.20am / 1.20pm / 3.20pm

Once your instructors feel you’ve gotten the hang of the basics, it’s time to get in the water and try out your new found surf skills. Your instructor will be with you and/or your group every step of the way. Within no time at all, you’ll learn how to stand on your board and ride your first wave!


10.00am / 12.00pm / 3.00pm / 4.00pm

Once your lesson is complete, you will have the choice to either call it a day or hire your surf-board and rash guard for a little longer so you can make the most of your time surfing on Tamarindo beach.
