Surfs Up Dude! Family Surf Lessons

“Can we do that again before we leave Costa Rica?” That might be what you hear after your child learns to stand up and catch a wave on the gold coast. Learning how to do something new is the type of experience you will find on this COSTA RICA FOR KIDS small private group surf lesson.

Kids are so attentive and hang on every word their too cool for school, local surf guru teacher tells them. They will tote their own board and practice positions and movements on the sandy shore before heading into the ocean. Attentive surf instructors will accompany your child and help them get their board past the gentle, rolling waves and out past the break to wait for the next set. Rash guards and the boards are included, so you don’t need to buy anything to get started.

Your child will learn patience as they wait for the next set of waves and by the end of the day show gratitude for the instructor who has been helping them get back out beyond the breaking waves over and over again. These surf guides love kids and what they do. They are the experts whom never seem to tire, and love sharing their love for the ocean and surfing with kids.

The beaches in Tamarindo are the perfect locale for learning to surf. Long stretches of beach with gentle waves that take you to shore, make it easy to accomplish the goal.
