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.

“My week at Surf Simply exceeded every expectation and I experienced so much more! The week was riviting! Filled with not just amazing surf, but amazing people, from my surf mates to coaches to the staff. It was family from day one. A learning experience compared to none. If you want to learn to surf better quickly, have a deeper understanding of this sport, the ocean and waves, build your confidence, be physically and athletically challenged, AND have a blast, so much fun, there is simply no better place in the world. Really, best week ever. I can wait to retun in December!”

“This was one of the most magical weeks of my life. If i could give ten thousand stars I would. Surfing was one sport I swore I would NEVER try, but everything about their approach made the impossible possible – thanks to my fantastic coach Gabriel, I was standing on the board by day 2! I think he was more excited than I was! The food was spectacular, the facility immaculate, the staff friendly and accommodating as can be, and from the moment I landed in Costa Rica until I left I felt taken care of and supported in every way possible. THANK YOU. Will definitely return!”
