La Oficina de Charlie Costa Rica Surf Camp Program

Lessons offered

All the sessions are conducted with good Tico energy and with the safety of a qualified lifeguard. La Oficina de Charlie offers a selection of surf lessons, from beginner to advanced levels. With seven years of experience as a teacher in Manuel Antonio, you will learn how to catch your waves and learn about the different techniques to approach the waves.

Surf lessons

Starting with a full explanation in the shade of the palm trees, Charlie will explain the different techniques including how to lay on the board, how to paddle and how to stand up, the do’s and the don’ts to keep you safe, and the rules and safety procedures of being in the water. Then, you will hit the waves for two or three hours (depending on how much you can handle), where Charlie will patiently remind and instruct you to make sure you have a successful and enjoyable session. La Oficina de Charlie guarantees that after the session, you will have a strong base for your future surf trips.

All equipment is included, such as boards for different levels (from soft boards to fiberglass), video footage on a GoPro, and sunscreen. There is no age limit and La Oficina de Charlie accepts absolute beginners, so everyone is welcome!
