Our surf camp will give a solid ground for anyone who wants to learn to surf or become a better surfer. It does not matter if you are a complete beginner or an experienced surfer, all levels are welcome. We will teach you everything you need to know. Our surf camp includes two surf lessons per day and lessons will be adapted according to the student’s experience.
*BEGINNER SURF LESSONS: On the first class you will learn the basics of surfing, starting from zero (no experience needed.) You will learn about safety and ocean knowledge, surfing etiquette, positioning on the board, how to paddle, how to stand up properly, and how to ride a wave. After a couple of lessons you are usually ready to move to the intermediate class.
*INTERMEDIATE SURF LESSONS:Here we focus on: timing (how to start paddling for a wave and when to stand up), positioning on the board (normally you try different board sizes according to your progress), paddling techniques, turning, getting in to the line-up, and surfing etiquette.
*ADVANCED SURF LESSONS:The advanced lessons are about improving weaknesses and learning new skills. We will analyze your surfing technique, show you what you are doing wrong, and teach you how to fix it. The aim is to improve your surfing and also work on things you wish to get better at. Surf big waves every day and feel like a part of the surf community with your instructor and other surfers.

The norther Pacific side of Costa Rica is best know for its fun waves rather than epic 10 foot advanced surf!
Air temperature in the north is the same year round 32°C. The seasons are divided in two: dry Season from December to April and wet season from May to November. Dry season is the busiest time for tourism in Costa Rica and they call it their summer.
Tamarindo is a year round surf destinations. The bigger swell season is from April to October. From December to March you tend to get smaller but clean 4 foot waves and is probably the best time to go. Wind is not usually a big factor but as with most places the morning will be best for glassy offshore conditions.
Surf beaches around Tamarindo
The main surf beach in the area is Playa Grande, a very consistent long beautiful beach break for intermediates. La Casita across the estuary is a fast beach break. El Estero is the fast rivermouth, great for longboarder surfers.
Surfing Tamarindo beach itself is great for all levels with Pico Pequeno & Pico Grande for more advanced. Further south is Playa Langosta, rocky underneath the surface and offering fun waves. Playa Avellanas is the most stunning beach in the area and suits all standards. One of Costa Roca's best. Playa Negra further south is an excellent right hand reef break over crystal clear water.
