Needed help getting oriented with the breaks in the area & also basic supplies (board wax, etc). Jesus was very helpful with everything & got me going. It was like having a great friend and surf buddy in Tamarindo. Highly recommend this place!

Great place to rent boards. Everyone very helpful, friendly and accommodating. It is like having your own personal stash of boards without the expense. We will return to the Surf Club again and again.

I needed a high performance surfboard for a Witch's Rock trip. Jesus had the right board for me at the right price. No bs, hidden fees, etc. Jesus does good business and made my trip an unforgettable one!
