We arranged two days of lessons as beginners with Sander. He was a brilliant teacher and we progressed A LOT! He was relaxed, fun and very professional. My only regret is that we didn't have longer with him! I'd highly recommend this school and Sander. Thank you for a brilliant experience!

My girlfriend and I were totally new to wakeboarding, but Sander made it an incredible experience. He was flexible with scheduling, helped us to relax and learn the basics of wakeboarding as quickly as possible, and made for an awesome time. Reasonable rates as well! I also recommend Sander if you are looking for a great, affordable air bnb near... More

We had such a wonderful time with Sander on Lake Arenal. The best part was his instruction and guidance! My boyfriend got up on his first try! (After many attempts at wake boarding and never getting up) He had me doing little wake jumps and a 180 trick within an hour! I had never taken official wake boarding lessons and... More

My family of 4 went out with Sander last week (kids 9 and 7). None of us had been wakeboarding before. We had such a great time!! Sander was so patient and accommodating and gave us enough information (but not too much!) to get ourselves up. Once we were up, it was amazing fun! Even just being in the boat... More

My family had a terrific time with Sander wakeboarding with Flyzone. I had been waterskiing before but no one in my family had ever gone wakeboarding. Sander was a great teacher. My 9 year old son and I managed to both get up within three tries with some great lessons from Sander. To be honest, I was shocked that my... More

This is my second time on the lake with Sander. The first was with a group of friends for a day of wakeboarding. Sander is a great guy and a really knowledgeable instructor. He can give you the smallest of pointers that are a big help for beginners or for the intermediate riders to take it to the next level.... More

Our boys spent a great day wakeboarding on Lake Arenal with Sander. He provided great instruction and was a great host. It was very easy to arrange a time, the location was ideal and was very reasonably priced compared to other offerings. Would recommend to anyone traveling in Costa Rica, whether novice or advanced.

I spent two days wakeboarding with Sander and Flyzone Costa Rica and it was a fantastic experience. His boat, although older runs great and throws a fantastic sharp wake, allowing me to throw the entire bag of tricks no problem.
