We rented boards from here to go surfing. Overall they were pretty good, and they helped us carry the boards out the shop.

I'm not much of a surfing expert, but I thought Mini Mop's shop was a great place to rent boards. Good service and fair price. Would recommend!

Great little surf shop with a good selection of boards for a good price! Heiner AKA "mini mop" runs the shop out of his house and is a very nice kid who is all about customer service and treating the customer right. I don't even bring my boards down there anymore cause Heiner always has a sick board for me to rent. Pura vida

I have been traveling to the Playa Grande area with my son for several years. We have taken surf lessons from shops in Playa Grande and found them to be ok, but it seemed to be an activity, not really a true lesson in surfing. While staying in Matapalo this year, we stopped by MiniMop to rent boogie boards, and ended up booking some surf lessons, too. It was a great decision! Heiner took us out at the perfect time. Had a thorough lesson the beach, then we went into the waves. He has tremendous patience, and gave helpful insight to try to help us improve with each wave. We ended up booking a couple days. MiniMop provided the best experience we ever had with surf lessons! Heiner is great teacher! He made us all feel at ease, and gave us confidence. We will always use his services. He is a local surfer who truly wants people to have a good surf experience, not just a tourist day at the beach. I highly recommend, especially is you have kids. Can't wait for next summer, to have a lesson and a beer with our new friend Heiner. Pura Vida!

Rented twice with MiniMop and couldn't be happier. Just let him know your experience, skill level, and what your looking for, and he'll help guide you.

No sales pitch or commercializing here. Just MiniMop and his boards, with the true vibe of Tico's and Pura Vida.

Thanks for a great time!
