    Family and Group of friends surfing lessons are a fun and effective way to learn to surf! With a student to instructor ratio of three-to-one, Costa Rica surf camp has gained a reputation for the best hands-on instruction and the quickest, most effective path to catching and riding waves on your own. Group surfing lessons cover everything from surfing’s basics: carrying your surfboard, attaching the leash, paddling, popping up, and reading and anticipating waves.

    We cover surf etiquette and beach safety. With our hands-on approach, our instructors do more than just demonstrate. We are right there in the water with you, helping you every step of the way constantly giving you tips, making adjustments, and providing invaluable feedback.

    Group surf lessons are especially fun with a group of friends, family, co-workers, and others. Bring your friends or make new ones who are also starting out in the wonderful sport of surfing. Most students get to experience the thrill of racing towards the shore on a wave during their very first lesson. Give yourself the best opportunity to catch and ride the waves on your own.

    All of our surf lessons include a rash guard and a surfboard per student. Bring your sunscreen, towel, and your sense of adventure in this new sport.
