        What a wonderful experience. I travelled with two girlfriends for my first experience surfing. Nosara is spectacular, the beach, waves and sunsets were all beautiful and the ideal spot to learn how to surf. The surf school is run brilliantly by Kelsey and Collin. You...More

        It varies, if you have a group of four you get a steep discount bc it saves on transportation costs. They were way more affordable than the other surf schools and very hospitable!!!! If you email they can quote you a price.
