The experts at Agua Tibia see a variety of individuals every single day and are able to thoroughly assess clients of different ages, levels of physical ability, sizes, and expectations...and still they extract the surfer in everyone, all the while exuding an excitement as if this is the first time they have surfed or the only person they have ever...

I came to Nosara with very little surf experience, only having tried surfing twice with absolutely no success. My friend and I signed up for lessons at Agua Tibia, which ended up being the best decision we made! The team at Aqua Tibia is so knowledgeable; they made learning the basics so easy and fun. After just 4 days of... More

Surfing can seem like a real challenge but the Agua Tibia team somehow teach surfing so it becomes effortless. I came to Nosara with a friend to improve my surfing and I could not imagine being better accommodated than by Adrian and the boys. The shop is a short walk from Playa Guiones, an ideal beginner/intermediate spot for its consistent... More

The water is warm and comfortable, the beach is gently sloping sand, and the waves are regular but not huge. The guides are excellent teachers: they go over the basics on land, then take you out in the water and coach you and keep coaching you until you get it. I figured I would never be standing up on a...

We brought 5 kids (from 8 to 22) with their two aging parents (54 and 50) for first surfing lessons. The guys were great, gave us lots of personal attention, and had all of us up on the first day. We followed up with another set of lessons and then board rentals over the rest of the week. Convenient to... More

I would highly recommend anyone needing to rent a surfboard to do it from here. You can do it for a couple of hours for only $10. I have all the places we looked this is beyond the rare.
