Technical coaching, of a standard as high as any mainstream sport, is now available for surfing. Surf Simply’s one and two week, all inclusive courses in Nosara, Costa Rica, have changed the way surfing is taught.

Unlike conventional surf schools, this isn’t about standing up. At Surf Simply we identify the many specific skills behind the sport and then break down the mechanisms, making surfing accessible to everyone. Our team of 8 ISA and ILSF qualified coaches are surf geeks who work with just 12 guests each week, replacing ambiguous surf lingo with clear, concise, systemized coaching. We don’t teach you how to surf. We teach you how to teach yourself how to surf, or surf better through a combination of video feedback, theory lessons, and in-water coaching.

Simply buy your plane ticket and we take care of everything else. We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to our resort here in Nosara. We will have already asked you about your surfing experience and goals and your preferences regarding every detail of your trip from massages, stretch classes and food, to extra activities like stand up paddle boarding, zip lining or horseback riding. After your stay we’ll give you all your photos, video footage and even a bespoke film about your week with us. You will leave filled with enthusiasm and a solid understanding of the sport, having received the most enjoyable surf coaching available, at one of the world’s safest, most picturesque and consistent surf spots.You can check our availability here and email us to book your stay.

“I had such an amazing stay at Surf Simply. You’re probably reading all the glowing reviews, like i did, and wondering if it’s for real. How could it be possible to have the wonderful coaching, a beautiful resort, fabulous food and some of the nicest people you will ever meet in both the guests and the staff? Surf Simply absolutely has it all. They look at your surfing experience and tailor your coaching and your entire week to fit what your goals are – and make you a better surfer. That’s a great week in itself. But here’s what keeps on giving: I just got back from my first surfing weekend after my Surf Simply visit. The skills I learned have made a massive difference in my surfing. I caught more waves than I’ve ever caught. Was more comfortable in the lineup. Knew exactly what to do, and knew what skills to work on. I am so very thankful not only for the amazing memories of this beautiful place and my week at Surf Simply, but also what I know is so much more fun to come with what I learned there. An experience I will never forget.”

“We love going home to Surf Simply! Every detail is so thoughtful and perfect; it’s an opportunity for us to relax, get away from high-stress jobs, and focus on surfing and each other for an entire week. The coaching is second to none, every meal is more delicious than the last, the resort (common spaces and especially the rooms) is beautiful. Highly, highly recommend!”

“If you are serious about surfing and looking for some of the best technical coaching available to non-professionals in the world, Surf Simply is a must. You will walk mere steps from the resort to the consistently good Playa Guiones beach break, where your every wave will be captured by Surf Simply’s media team (including cameras on the beach, in the water, and overhead by drone), after which you will paddle in and see those waves analyzed in frame-by-fame detail by the brilliant coaches. And then, time to paddle back out and work on correcting your mistakes. In-between, there are informative lectures on everything from the history of board design, to breath-holding techniques and stretching. And at lunch and dinner there are the glorious meals prepared by Chef Dennis. I have been to other “surf camps” in other parts of the world, but nothing can compare to this.”
