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.

"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."

"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 was our second visit to Surf Simply and once again it was exceptional. The team at SS manage to keep a level of excellence week in week out. From the moment you are met at the airport to the time you are returned to the airport for onward travel, everything is taken care of. We go for the surf coaching, but the accommodation, food, resort, massages, stretch classes are all wonderful.

If you wanted to design the perfect surf school experience, you would end up with Surf Simply. The beautiful facility is purpose-built to host each class of 12 surfers and a few non-surfers. The instructors/coaches are the best and the “off the water” experience is just so enjoyable as well. The food, facilities, instruction and their attention to organizing everything for you so you can just concentrate on improving your surfing is second to none. Steps to the beach for reliable year round waves. Just really really well thought out and designed. A five star experience.

Surf Simply

Just surf, learn & relax

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, fishing or horseback riding. Every distracting detail, even down to things like tipping and bar tabs, will have already been taken care of by us before you even leave home.
