Beginner Surfing Classes in Montezuma
US$ 60.00
Overview

Come and try the best thing to do in Costa Rica. Learn to surf in paradise! In this four-hour surf adventure you will experience amazing surf, enchanting locations, adventurous jungle trails, breathtaking nature and exhilarating wildlife. Safety is our primary focus so we take surf to Playa Grande, a beach that it's located thirty minutes hike from Montezuma and is between two protected areas and wildlife refuges. With a long and big sandbar bottom, this is the perfect place to learn your first steps on surfing in a gentle and safe way. All surf equipment is included, the surf class is 2 hours and we do a break to recharge and get water & fruits (included in the price)

What to Expect
The schedules of the surf lessons follows the tide changes and surf conditions like winds and swells, so we put the schedules every day or every other day. After meeting in Montezuma, you will start a hike to Playa Grande passing through some of the most beautiful beaches and some little jungle path .

Once there, you will setup camp in a shady spot on the beach were you will get ready and start the theoretical introduction for about fifteen minutes which covers: attitude and behavior in the water, beginners safety rules and basic techniques of surfing. After that you will practice the stand up exercise in the sand to have a better reference to what to do in the water.

You will jump in the water on the safe zone of the white water where you will be in maximum chest high deep water. You will catch the waves after they break and use that soft energy to put in practice all this new knowledge.
