This is the best surf shop in town. Conveniently located great staff and extremely hospitable. We were in town for 6 days I surfed almost every day. Rented a board from the shop and took 2 lessons from Mauricio. By second lesson had me catching waves on my own and even dropped in to a few. He was very patient... More

After reading many reviews in search of the best value surf lesson, I am so glad I went with this place! We walked up around 10:30 am - after being solicited by several people on the beach for sketchy lessons as low as $20 - we were greeted by Mauricio who offered a great price $35/person for 2 hours, semi-private....

I rented a surfboard for the week I was in Tamarindo. The guy at the shop was very helpful and nice. The waves were small the whole week, so I started out with a hybrid style board the first two days and then switched to a mini-malibu type when the waves got even smaller. Both boards were in good condition... More

Our 2 boys (ages 7 and 9) took 3 days of semi-private lessons with Mauricio and it was fantastic! Mauricio focused on some land instructions on each day, emphasized safety and spent as much time in the water as the boys wanted. he was so patient, friendly and an excellent teacher. Prices were very reasonable and they were flexible with... More

One of the best surf shops in the world! Most of the time I rent boards while traveling. The surf shop has a descent selection. I was able to exchange the boards a few times to surf different conditions. All of my friends used the same surf shop before. All staff was very helpful and nice! Good vibe! I strongly... More

Very friendly staff with nice selection of boards and surf gear. A unique twist is the art work by Diego Garcia. I highly recommend stopping by and getting any surf gear or surf you may need and while you are there take a look at the unique art work.

The staff was the first thing to strike my attention as I immediately recognized that they were trustworthy (very nice and cool too!). Was given advice on the board style to rent, and then a good surf break to hit up. The board was re-waxed and the fin and leash attached. It was not any trouble to swap boards to... More
