Surf Inn Hermosa Costa Rica Surf Camp Program

Surf Inn Hermosa’s learn to surf package is for all beginners, old or young! Daily surf lessons guarantee that students will become quickly acclimated with essential surfing skills. Your instructors are experienced surfers and will inform you with the joys about safety, channels and currents, lots of personal tips to help you ride a wave, and techniques to improve your surfing. By the end of the first week, you are sure to feel the unequivocal sensation of riding a wave.

Wake up every morning surrounded by nature, enjoy a healthy breakfast, and then head off to the beach with your coach for an action-packed surf adventure. Each session starts with a surf check of the waves and conditions that day. The basics of how to control the board in the line up, the pop up, paddling techniques, and basic surfing etiquette will all be reviewed; and then it is into the water you go!


This surf camp will be held at the Surf Inn Hermosa, situated at the heart of the action of Playa Hermosa in the district of Garabito, one of the best surfing destinations in Central America.
