I had a fantastic time learning to surf with Luigi! I booked four lessons and was very pleased with my progress. Luigi's explanations, pointers and consistent encouragement made my experience all that much more enjoyable. The coconut water after the lesson was a wonderful treat. Pura vida!!!!
The crew in the shop were always very friendly and helpful. By the end of my four days I felt like family. I will definitely be back!
Playa Guiones is a terrific place to surf. I highly recommend checking them out while you're in Nosara.

I went with my wife and two sons (9 and 10 years old) and we all had a great lesson. They were great about covering safety basics, then moving into the technique, then having us get some repetitions on the beach, then getting us onto waves in a very short time.

I had tried surfing before (lesson in Hawaii, going out with friends who surf) but had much more success here than ever before in part due to their instructions and practice on the beach. My family also all were immediately surfing despite no prior experience. Also they spoke great English and were very friendly.

I only wish I had more days to work with them!

The instructor was great, Rolo. It was a great price renting the board and taking lessons. The location is close to the beach entrance. The ladies in the shop were very friendly and helpful.

These guys are awesome.
Within 4 lessons I was on smaller green waves.
