The resort staff and surfing coaches are simply superb! I was originally scheduled to visit Surf Simply solo due to my wife's work schedule. As luck would have it my wife's schedule opened up 2 days prior to my scheduled week and the surf simply team (Erika) miraculously found a way for her to join me and surf! We both...

Surf Simply puts all the elements of a very high quality vacation experience together seamlessly. The coaching is excellent but so is the organization of the week. As others mentioned, the food is also very good and they were very sensitive to my vegetarian preference. Highly recommended!

I booked the week at Surf Simply to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary. My husband is a intermediate surfer and the depth of my experience is "here's a board... get out there and paddle then try to stand up". We got on the plane and Surf Simply took it from there - EVERYTHING from our taxis, food, schedule, etc. They...

My husband and I came to surf simply based on a recommendation from a friend who knew we wanted to learn to surf. Despite our friends enthusiastic recommendation, we were overwhelmed by how these guys have everything dialed in-- from the minute you arrive until departure, you don't have a care in the world except learning how to surf :-)...

Surf Simply has many well deserved fantastic reviews. Instead of adding another simply wonderful review, I am commenting from the perspective of a non-surfing guest. I am totally uninterested in learning to surf, however, my daughter and husband are both learning. My daughter had been to Surf Simply a few years ago and talked my husband and I into going...

Found this place a few years ago while searching online for some good surfing tutorials. Came upon the "Whiteboard Wednesdays" which are stick-figure tutorials on the physics of surfing. These were really helpful and fit the type of teaching I really like. Made a reservation last year and couldn't wait to come. We got to SS late and were greeted...

As all the other reviews will agree with me, Surf Simply really is a unique place. I spent an amazing week here. All of the coaches are not only great teachers, but all-round interesting and nice people. The focus on "technical" surf coaching is rather unique and does not exist in many places for the "hobby" surfer. Location: Nosara is...

I just returned from my second visit to Surf Simply and once again, it was one of the highlights of my year.

This is my second time here, and I'm already saving up for my next visit. We returned with 6 other guests we met at Surf Simply last year. It was the best reunion! Good times :) This time my husband and I had Asher as our coach. He's so encouraging and helpful. And I love watching him surf. Such style!...
