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.

“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!”

“Will completely change your surfing. Our group had a wide variety of skill levels and everyone made huge progress. Critiquing video of yourself from the morning session and then going back out in the afternoon to work on specific issues is sooo helpful. The coaching staff is really talented and a lot of fun.

The facility was super comfortable. Spacious rooms, yoga / stretching studio, great common area to relax and chat with the other guests. It is very communal.

The in-house chefs are incredible and accommodated all dietary restrictions – our group had gluten free, vegan, soy allergy, and shellfish allergy. Snacks and fruit always available (you will be starving) and open bar of beer and wine.”
