My wife and I came to Tamarindo for a week and surfing was one of our checklist items. We had both attempted surfing in the past with little success. The lesson made all the difference as we both made it up after a few attempts and Gino helped us catch a ton of waves during the lesson. Highly recommend this spot for anyone that wants to learn how to surf!
First off, this place was amazing. When I got to Costa Rica, the locals in other cities were recommending this place for when I got to Tamarindo. The people are so friendly and cool. Grevien is like a pro. He showed me the safety first, then the tips. He taught me how to watch the waves come in and how to surf using as little effort as possible so you can reserve your energy for paddling and getting up on the board. He had me standing up and surfing in like 30-40 minutes. I was stoked! Keep in mind, he was helping me with the board, now I need to learn to paddle and catch that wave like he showed me. The photographer Aurora was very talented and professional. I got a great deal on the photos. I can't wait to post them on Facebook lol. I'm going back to Texas soon but this place will stay in my heart forever. Pura Vida!!!
