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.

“This place is magical. I’m only giving it 5 stars because I can’t give it 10. The facilities, teachers, food, everything was amazing, my surfing improved by leaps and bounds, and because the instruction is so good I’m ready to continue improving into the foreseeable future. I can’t wait to go back for more.”

“This has to be the best surf resort I have ever stayed in (and i have tried quite a few). From the reservation to the reception to the food and the coaches…could not have been made to feel better or safer. If you are thinking of learning to surf then come here before you go anywhere else (so you don’t have to spend ages correcting mistakes learned elsewhere…). can’t wait to come back.
ps also felt super safe here during the covid pandemic…they really know how to take care of you .
whether you are in a group or solo you will meet lots of great like minded people”
