Surf Lessons for adults & teens

Great time with Glen and his crew! He was an excellent teacher and his crew was great. He was very patient and careful with the kids. His wife was very friendly and helped us order lunch from a restaurant and brought food to us on the beach. Rental surfboards we’re only $10 for as long as you wanted to use them. We had such a great time at lessons that we came back the next day. He is by the bus stop and they will watch your stuff while you have lessons. There are lots of vendors and some shady characters around so don’t leave your stuff unattended. We saw a sloth and monkeys at that area of the beach. Great day!

Surfing with Glen and his team was fantastic. My instructor Oscar was very patient and helped get me on the board many times. Definitely recommend the experience!

First surfing experience was amazing

My girlfriend and I booked surf lessons online the night before. We chose Glen’s business because of the lower-end price of the lessons, the convenient pick-up and drop off (even though we had a car), and because of the positive reviews. We weren’t splurging much on our trip and this turned out to be a very affordable highlight!
At precisely 9am, Glen (owner and former pro) arrived at the hotel and drove us to the beach. Oscar was our instructor for our first-ever surf lesson (which was semi-private - just the two of us). Oscar was endlessly patient, encouraging, and catered to different levels of ability very well. The fruit and water during the break was a nice touch and well-earned.
We both got up on our second attempt, and had a blast over the hour+ of catching waves.
After the lesson, they let us catch our breath and hydrate at their tent while we planned our afternoon, and good-guy-Glen even stopped at the grocery store on the way home so we could grab food for our lunch.
I absolutely recommend Glen’s team for surfing in M-A (or Quepos) area! We’re excited to try surfing again in the future.

Beware, your ribs might be sore for a couple days after your first time surfing!

Glen and his team are amazing!

Glen, Angie, and their team are amazing! They helped take care of everything while we were on the beach. Their tent was easy to find from the main road (618). Once we arrived, they watched our bookbags and kept an eye on our things while we got in the water. They were very patient with our group of 4 (2 guys, 2 girls) who were all beginner surfers. Their clear instructions helped us catch lots of waves, stay safe, and have fun in the water. After our lesson, they had fresh fruit and cold water ready for us. They rented chairs and umbrellas for very reasonable prices and they even gave us restaurant and parking recommendations. We had such a great time, that we went back a second day, even though we hadn't planned on it. They helped make our vacation even better.

Glen Castro Surfing Lesson

We met Glen on the beach at his tent. It was very easy to find. He was an amazing teacher and had us out in the water catching waves in no time. Very safe and professional. Would do lessons with him

Great experience. Professional company.

Great company who was very patient and easy to work with, even when we accidentally gave the wrong location to pick us up. Sebastian was my instructor and did a great job with the lesson. It was a lot of fun and easier than expected to get up and ride some waves. Great way to spend a few hours on the beach.

Awesome experience!

This was our first time surfing and we had an amazing experience - the instructor did an excellent job going through the basics and we were up on the water in no time! Glen gave us fresh fruit and water when we were finished, then provided us with a chair/umbrella and helped us order lunch from the nearby restaurant. Highly recommend this experience!!

Highly recommended it

“Surfing here is wonderful! We went in a group of 4 and everyone of us got their own instructor. The waves were big and even though we were beginners they managed to explain everything so we could ride those. They provided water and pineapple for us and even offered to take pictures with our phones. Once the lesson was over we could just use the board and continue on our own. Great stuff. You should definitely try it.”

Great Tim Surfing

My 7 year old daughter had an amazing morning surfing with Eddie and Willie. The entire staff was so helpful and welcoming! My little girl was surfing within minutes of hitting the water and felt safe and comfortable. Would definitely recommend this experience for anyone in the Manuel Antonio area.
