"I think one thing about Surf Simply is that its an amazing community. Everyone is both enthusiastic and supportive. They foster that amongst the guests that come and stay with them."

Surf Simply

Technical surf coaching

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 9 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.

"I had an incredible experience at Surf Simply. The staff, the coaching, the accommodations, and the food were all top notch! I've been surfing most of my life, and I found the coaching to be very helpful (Hat Tip to Jessie Carnes - my coach). It was a luxury learning experience, coupled with a tremendously hospitable staff. I would highly recommend it for any level surfer--from beginners through advanced!"

"This February I had the pleasure to be at Surf Simply. It was an amazing week. As a beginner I felt totally supported and learned so much. My coaches Justin and Jose helped me achieve and surpass my goals. The space, food and staff were amazing. They took great care of all the guests. It was my first time there but hopefully not the last. Thank you to everyone for making Surf Simply the best!"

"This was an amazing experience, provided by a very thoughtful and fun group of people (seriously, every last person there is awesome). Every aspect of Surf Simply is incredibly well-planned, and the absolute best. I was blown away by the coaching and the support given to every surfer staying there. Our group had so much fun, and progressed in our surfing. The resort itself is beautiful, the meals were amazing, I could go on and on..."

"Truly amazing. The Surf Simply team is incredible. Nosara itself is great. But Surf Simply takes it to the next level. The surf coaching is fantastic. But they focus on and nail every detail including the food, drinks, lodging, the massages. All of which made for a truly memorable trip. Thank you! I'll be coming back."
