My husband and I took surfing lessons with Pablo early last week on our vacation in the Guanacaste area. Pablo was courteous and professional and he was incredibly patient, which was exactly what we needed as first time surfers. Pablo arrived at our hotel at 9am to pick us up and drive us into Tamarindo for our lesson. He was on time and explained to us what our lesson would be like on the drive to the beach. Once at the beach, we did a quick 15 minute lesson on the sand practicing standing up on our boards and then it was straight into the water. My husband and I were both able to stand up on our boards very early into the lesson and we have Pablo to thank for that.
I thought perhaps we would be joined by others learning to surf but to my surprise, my husband and I were Pablo's only clients that morning so it was excellent having a private teacher. I am under the assumption that Pablo only does private surf lessons but I could be wrong.
I also really liked that Pablo carried a waterproof camera with him so during the lesson he will take photos of you in the water and as you're "surfing" or attempting to surf ;) He emailed us our pictures within the same week so we were able to see our surf pictures even before we had left Costa Rica. It was a really nice added touch!
We fully enjoyed our surf lesson and we look forward to going back to Costa Rica and trying surfing once again!
