“best Day Surfing….ever”

When we gather with surfers to teach and explore, our expectations are that we will hear, “that was my best day of surfing…ever”. Surfing around Montezuma and Santa Teresa, we are constantly rewarded with excellent choices of Surfing Beaches to choose from. We have may different surf breaks to select the perfect waves for our surfers to excel each day.

We pass along all of our vast knowledge of the surf break that we are surfing each day. This insures that our surfers will have a safe, and comfortable time in the waves. Once a surfer becomes comfortable with the conditions, it allows them to focus on the tasks and goals for the session. We always challenge our surfers to progress, while acknowledging their comfort zone limits.

Check out our website to see what we offer for Surf Lessons, and Surf Camps. Montezuma, Costa Rica is an excellent destination for learning to Surf. We want to hear you tell us, “that was my best day of surfing…ever”.

Empty Waves Await You

Late Green Season means empty waves for you to enjoy while you surf in Costa Rica. South swells continue to move towards our beaches and point breaks giving us excellent conditions for surf school guests. Learning to surf in Costa Rica is an exceptional experience here on the Southern Nicoya Peninsula. We travel to the best beaches of Montezuma, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, and Playa Hermosa, to find the best waves for you to learn to surf. Book a trip to Costa Rica and come surf with Montezuma Surf. You will be happy you did.

WOW…nice Review Amber Thank you

montezuma surf school
Luckily, my friends and I met Chris while on our way to Montezuma. We could immediately sense he had great energy and were eager to sign up for his surfing lessons. It was undoubtedly one of my best days on the Nicoya Peninsula- Chris drove us to Playa Hermosa in Santa Teresa, rated one of the best beaches in Costa Rica. It was the perfect environment for a launch into surfing – the waves were gentle and there were few rocks. Wide range

Chris began with a concise introduction to surfing techniques, which were then practiced in the water. He definitely met the individual needs of all the students. Those who were more at ease in the water were given more advanced advice while others needed more basic assistance.

He made sure to allow us to be adventurous and independent student while ensuring our safety- he is enthusiastic, spirited, and one of the best teachers I’ve ever come across. Although sprightly, he gave us time to relax and enjoy the ambiance. Towards the end of the night, we watched an exquisite sunset and were invited to a bonfire by friends of Chris. He is not only a teacher, but a friend to his students and has great connections in the area. The entire experience was spectacular – I wish I could do it everyday!

One Week Surf Camp Outline

As a result of our ongoing efforts to offer a structured learning environment for our Surf Campers..we have created the One Week Outline. This is constantly evolving to best meet the needs of our Surf Students.

One Week Surf Adventure Outline

Orientation

20 to 30 minute Surfers meeting with the Instructors the evening prior to Day one.  Surfers learn about us and our qualifications. We learn about our Surfers, any Surf Skills they may have, and determine Surfboard selection best suited for them. We cover Surf History, Safety, Surf Etiquette, and how we communicate in the Surf. This also gives us a chance to let the Surfers know what to expect, and how to prepare for the days ahead.

Day One

Introduction to Surf Lesson

Learn the basics of surfing. Beach training to learn: Surfer stance, prone to stance techniques, pre Surf stretching, and the safest way to handle your Surfboard on land and in the water; then into the waves for paddling, standing, turning, and other fundamental Skills.

Day Two

Level Two Surf Lesson

Surfers learn the techniques for making it outside of the whitewater to catch green (unbroken) waves, sitting on the surfboard, visual position line-up (where am I in the ocean), and critical timing for catching, and riding waves.

Day Three

Open Water Surf Instruction

Surfers learn about wave science, ocean knowledge, wave predicting, and wave direction choice. We focus on, and challenge the students to surf without physical assistance from the instructor. This is the day most Surfers feel they are no longer a beginner.

Normally Surfers like an Off Day after 3 intensive days of Surf Instruction.

Day Four

Surf Maneuvers Instruction

Surfers learn the basic surf maneuvers that will allow them to advance their surfing skills. We instruct, and provide tasks for: carving the face of the wave, the cutback, hitting the lip, the floater, and the round-house cutback.

Day Five

Dancing with Waves

Our focus for this day is to connect the Surfers with the natural flow of the ocean and the waves. We teach how to feel the wave, and how to adjust yourself to the wave energy, while you surf. Our goal is to have the Surfers get into a comfortable rhythm while surfing.

Day Six

Sunset Surf Safari with Bonfire Dinner

We consult with each Surfer to create a Lesson plan, and they are individually coached on the techniques that are deemed most necessary to increasing their surfing skills. We surf until dark. Then we enjoy the sunset with Happy Hour beverages, and snacks. Dinner is generally grilled chicken and vegetables served on a banana leaf.

Notes:

Student/ Instructor ratio is never more than 4 to 1 and most often 2 to 1.

Most Surf days are 4 to 5 hours long, with 2 to 3 hours in the waves.

We Surf the entire Nicoya Peninsula to find the best waves for our instruction:

Playa Hermosa; Playa Grande; Santa Teresa; Playa Carmen; Playa Los Cedros; Reyes Point.

Locations for each day’s Surf Spot will be confirmed the day prior.

We start the week on Longboards (8 to 10ft). As the Surfers’ abilities and desires warrant, we have shorter boards (8ft to 6ft) to progress with.

Orientation can be the evening prior or the morning of Day One.

Each day we bring lots of spring water, healthy snacks, sunscreen, first-aid, and rash guard surf shirts.

We have a waterproof camera, and post free photos daily. Professional Surf Photos and Surf Videos, are available for an additional cost.

Van Transportation to the Surf is provided.

Our schedule is flexible.

Where to look for Surf Forecasts

www.magicseaweed.com has been providing detailed surf forecasts for Montezuma. It has been quite accurate in it’s predictions, and we do rely on there data when planing our Surf Adventures.Of course nothing is better than standing on the Beach and checking the waves, as we do each morning.

Our Surf School and Surf Safari continue to help many guests realize their Surfing Dreams. The weather is clearing up here on the Nicoya Peninsula, and we are seeing sunny days, and starry nights.

The Costa Rica National Surf Series starts back up in December, and our Montezuma Surf Team will again be traveling, and competing. Last year saw many successes in competition, with the standouts being Luciano Lhoss Anz, 3rd overall in Bodyboard, and Surf Guru Chris Johnson, 3rd overall in Grand Masters.

We await you, and your friends. Come and Surf Montezuma with us.
