“Very good surf lessons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

The instructors were excellent and gave some great step by step instructions for the absolute beginners in the group, and some top tips for the slightly more experienced. Can't really fault anything apart from the lack of initial choice of boards. Myself and another guy with previous experience of surfing were given long boards, despite requesting shorter boards. Still, we had good fun all the same.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2013 via mobile

After an already action packed tour of Costa Rica, this was the icing on the cake.
Sebastian and Walter were fantastic instructors and had the whole group standing up riding the waves in no time. I wish I could have stayed longer and surfed some more!!

Big thanks to you guys for such an amazing experience!

“Excellent surf instruction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Sebastian gave great instruction on how to surf. My mother and I both tried for our first time, and had a great time. He paid attention to what we needed help with and gave very good instructions. I would definitely go back. Thanks to Sebastian & Del Mar!

“Fantastic Family Surf Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

We just returned from a fabulous trip to Costa Rica.

Carlos was so helpful in making arrangements for our family of four with two teenagers. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath condo at Bahia Azul was very comfortable and steps from the beach. Our hostess Monica was extremely helpful in transporting us to and from the condo for meals and surf lessons. She went out of her way to get us to the grocery too! Monica made arrangements for delicious meals at local restaurants.

Our surf lessons with Sebastian and Walter were fantastic! They were so patient and encouraging with all of us, especially our kids. We loved viewing our pictures on the CD from Monica. We would request these instructors again- they made a great team.

Our canopy zip line tour was also a highlight. Los Suenos tour company made sure that we were fitted properly and gave clear instructions. We had a blast.

We can't wait to return, and we highly recommend Del Mar Surf Camp.
