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 been on the waiting list for two years and then COVID struck. I waited another year and just recently returned from Surf Simply. All I can say is that it was definitely worth the wait. Every part of the stay was carefully and thoroughly thought of and executed. The surf coaching is incredible whether it’s your first time or you are an experienced surfer. I thought I was a half decent surfer, but learned so much and was able to refine my technique and understand my trouble areas. I now have drills and skills to work. Tealle, my Coach, was awesome and was able to push me while being encouraging. I knew she was genuine in her desire to make me better. The food, staff, accommodations, the people you meet, the curriculum, etc. etc. were incredible . I would highly recommend.”

“This is truly amazing and transformative program. If you want to learn to surf, eat insanely good food, sleep in a bed that will rival your own, be treated like a cherished friend, work out like an athlete, and learn how to grow your ability as a surfer for years to come… then don’t waste your time on other places. Surf Simply is in a galaxy of its own. I have been twice and will definitely go back.”

“A week at Surf Simply is an absolute treat. The method and professionalism of the coaching is unparalleled in my opinion – truly tailored to the level and desires of the individual. If the surfing aspects were all the week were about, that would be enough. However, every detail from arrival, to accommodation to the utterly superb food is thought through to the nth degree. Our week was a combination of highly exhilarating time in the water with the comforts of a beautiful place to stay. All members of the Surf Simply team are talented, generous with their time and highly professional. Like so many others, I will be booking immediately for a return trip.”
