What an experience! Manny was my instructor. He did a great job explaining how to get up. First time trying it and I was horrible. :) Manny was so patient and encouraging. I definitely recommend Sweet Costa Rica for your surfing lessons.

Emanuele was an amazing instructor. This was my very first time surfing and he made me feel super comfortable. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything thoroughly. He was very patient with me and was genuinely excited when I got up and caught some waves. Highly recommend.

Sebastian was awesome! His English was great and he was super patient with us beginners. We learned so much and found ourselves riding waves well before the end of the session. This is such a great value. 2 hours of helpful instruction with rash guards, boards, and bottled water included. Cannot recommend these guys enough. 5 stars.
