The Surfschool provided not only great equipment, but also reasonable rates and an outstanding service: The owner does speak several languages, including english and german, and he knows a lot about surfing. My girlfriend took surfing classes and after a few waves she managed to stand up and surf sucessfully.
I rented a board of great quality.

Thank you so much Pauhana !! Go there guys it's an amazing surf school, cool people and reasonable prices. Highly recommend !

Go here if you want to rent a surfboard on encuentro beach! the personell is really nice and will help you out! they have a great variety of boards and the beach is of beginners and for advanced surfers. but be there before 9am, since the winds destroy all the waves past midday. I even broke a longboard in a strong wave and they didn't make me pay for it, since it was an "old" board, really friendly! Right next to it, there is a food place, where you can have beers and breakfast/lunch.

We did a surf lesson on our last day and were really blown away by Chepe's customer service. We had not so great weather, so they kept recommending that we surf a different day. We so appreciated that someone was looking out for us. In the end, we ended up surfing immediately before heading to the airport. Before we took off, they offered/insisted on us being able to shower at the nearby Surf Lodge. Wonderful!! Can't say enough about these guys!!! Would definitely recommend.

I always wanted to try surfing and I was not disappointed. What fun! Instruction was very thorough. Practice on the beach made it easy to understand and try before getting in the water. Instructors were very helpful in the water. They made adjustments to make sure all of us were able to get up and hang ten. Bring a towel and some water and snacks in case you're hungry afterwards. No amenities on the beach.

The surf lessons here were amazing. Our instructor gave clear directions and made us all practice on land before getting in the water. Okay, so that may have been a little embarrassing but was super helpful once in the water. The instructors come out with you and give you a push to help you get up. All four of the women in my group were able to get up on the board after our first lesson! Thanks to PauHana I will definitely be trying surfing again!
