Make Your Surfing Dreams Come True at Samara Beach

Are you ready for your very first surf? Dreaming of going back home telling friends you learned to surf in Costa Rica?! We take the anxiety away and replace it with a thrilling experience of your first surf lesson by introducing surfing in a no-pressure, no-stress, supportive, and fun way. Your lesson will be designed to meet your specific needs and pace.

Our signature private surf lessons are with a friendly, knowledgeable, and professional surf instructor will help you to enjoy the entire learning experience. We’ll have you catching waves in no time! Our instructors have spent so much time on Costa Rica waves that you can relax knowing you are in the best hands and will be safe out in the water.

Land Lesson at Samara Beach: First, your private instructor will take you down to Samara beach and give you a brief, but important safety lesson and technique introduction. Samara Beach is the perfect spot for surf lessons as the large outer reef creates a natural barrier generating gentle and calm waves. We want you to get as comfortable as possible with popping up on your board with the proper stance before you try it on the waves. A solid base will help you to improve quicker. You will learn about the surf environment (wind, swell, waves, currents, and tides), the local conditions, and essential surf techniques during this land lesson.

In-Water Lesson: This is the best part! During your first paddle out, you will learn how to safely control your surfboard. We’ll teach you how to paddle, stand up, and catch waves. You’ll also learn how to choose the right wave, which makes all of the difference.

The goal is to teach you everything that you need to know to feel safe, comfortable, and stoked out in the surf. And we’ll video or snap photos of the whole thing if you want!
