Learn to Surf with Local Professional!
We'll meet at Pico Bistro (the glass cafe next to the car park) in Tamarindo and head to the sand, where we'll talk about the tide, wave conditions and safety information, before kitting you out with the perfect size surf board (we have a wide range to suit all) and rash guard. You can safely store your belongings at Pico Bistro. Before getting in the water we'll take the boards to the sand, where I'll demonstrate the correct technique for paddling, popping up on your board and you'll have a chance to practice until you feel ready to go! We'll jump into the water where I'll be by your side to help, instruct, guide and encourage you as you surf the waves; putting all you learnt on the beach into good practice! I will give you tips as we go, to help you perfect your paddling, positioning and balance on the board and, most importantly, we'll have fun and I aim to get you excited about surfing! For those more experienced surfers we can discuss your goals and help tailor teaching, techniques and tips to help you achieve these.
