surf instructor in puerto viejo?

Hi all!

My husband, baby and I are staying at Korrigan Lodge. We want to take surf lessons every day. We are looking for a serious instructor who will help us improve our technique and skills. Where should we look? Any recommendations are appreciated!

Or should we just try to find one when we get there?

I would just go down to Cocles beach and find one you are comfortable with. You can also negotiate multiday rates. One of them might have a car and could come to you down in Playa Grande, a surf beach close to Korrigan Lodge.

Ask Ingrid, owner of the Koorigan Lodge for her recommendations, she is a surfer and I"m sure you will recommend someone good and safe

If you are not bringing your own boards, ask for a multiple rate that would allow you to hold the rented boards for your own use outside of lesson time too. Have a great stay!
