What you'll do

Surfing gets you in sync with the waves of the ocean and allows you to feel an amazing stoke on life. A day of Surfing:

90 min surf lessons.
We can either meet you at the beach or I can pick you up at your hotel if staying in Guiones or Pelada beach

We begin with a beach theory class: emphasizing​ on safety- 'waveology"- beach drills.

*Remember: Safety is an obligation, not a choice.*

Once we have covered the basics and you are confident enough ​we will go in the water​ and begin our practice.

We can make sure you ride the waves of your life.
Other things to note
If you are an experienced surfer I offer surf guides and coaching to different and epic surf breaks. Send me a direct message for details.

Andrea has great knowledge of where to be to get a great ride. Waves were overhead and a bit too big for me. If I was more experienced I definitely would have learned more. But she had great tips for me to work on as I continue learning as a surfer.

Andrea was a fantastic instructor! She personalized the experience to my knowledge and skills, coached directed at my personal needs, and was a fun, kind person to spend time with. I would highly recommend Andrea as a surf coach. She’s organized, a good communicator, and was accommodating in schedule.

Andrea was hands down one of the best surf instructors I've ever worked with. She explains the ins and outs of surfing so you can understand and then makes sure you feel comfortable before diving into the water. She is also one of the only instructors that will take you out so you can get some good waves. If you want to learn to surf, buy a ticket to Costa Rica and learn from Andrea who is hands down the BEST!!

Andrea is a wonderful passionate instructure/guide and at this point would considered a friend. We, my daughter and I, arranged a surf trip/lesson to a new spot outside of Playa Guiones the trip was excellent! Highlight of our vacation for certain!! Andrea arrange everything for a perfect seamless adventure. Her instruction in the water was terrific as well she is really insightful and picked up on little details that improved our surfing. Most of all she and her daughter are an absolute pleasure to be will and made the whole adventure a blast. Highly recommend

Within moments of meeting Andrea her love and passion for surf, water and life were obvious. For me, I didn't want to be able to just get up and ride a wave in. I wanted to know the whys and hows and begin to become a surfer. Before our first lesson had ended , I booked many more. She really breaks it down and teaches you the ins and outs. Safety is her number one priority and she will never place you in a situation that you can't handle. Her amazing blend of wisdom, humor, patience, strength and kindness really allowed me to progress. I'm already thinking about my next visit to Nosara so I can surf with Andrea again!
