Yes, take a surf lesson with these guys. You will have a blast. They are fun, professional and they helped me surf better than I ever thought I could! The waves at this beach are perfect for learning.

I always thought surfing was tough but at the Tico school the instructors are amazing and gradually increase your skill. Our instructor Yelsin was amazing. They start on the shore with techniques and then take you to the water. Within a session you can be independent and after he class the school allows you to use the boards for the whole day as well as provides you beach chairs!! All in all 5 stars.

Erly and his crew at Tico Surf not only provide lessons and rentals but also expert knowledge on the waves and which beaches to surf depending on the conditions. Erly taught my wife and I to surf several years ago, and we have been having a blast ever since with the occasional follow up refresher lesson.

Our family of 5 had the best time with Erly and his staff today. 2 adults and 3 boys (9, 10 & 13) and we all got up on our boards! Darryl, Yeslin, and Cesar were great with all of us too. Our lessons included boogie boards, lounge chairs and a sun shade for the whole day. I highly recommend Tico Surf School to anyone. If Erly can have me surfing, he can get anyone to surf. Muchas gracias, Erly! Pura Vida

We really had a great experience at Tico Surf Lessons. Our first experience was with Erly. He was great and got our boys (8 and 11) set up with their instructors Dariel and Kelsin. Based on the kids ages Erly felt it best to give each child their own personal instructor (at not extra cost) rather than have one instructor for two of them. Both instructors were fantastic with the boys. They taught them a lot and and encouraged them the whole time with smiles, encouraging words and high-fives. If you are considering surf lessons in Jaco, you must check our Tico Surf Lessons!!!
