Surfing - Playa Hermosa (Guanacaste)

I haven't had much luck finding surfing lessons in Playa Hermosa. I'm looking for a place with little safe waves, for kids that are almost 5, 6.5 and 12... none with surfing experience. We are staying in PH... I just don't want to commit to an hour drive to Tamarindo daily if possible. Again, not looking to make them into surfers... just for fun and to get them up on the board.

There aren't any waves for surfing in the Golfo de Papagayo (where Playa Hermosa, Playa del Coco and Playa Panama are.)

These beaches are bays where scuba diving boats, personal yachts, fishing boats and sailboats are moored.

Tamarindo, Playa Grande and Avellanas are the nearest beaches with surfable waves for beginners.
