What you'll do

From beginners to veteran riders, we have the surfing experience for you. We will give you a two-hour surfing lesson that includes a 10-minute theory class on the beach. You will learn basic techniques—how to paddle, the right position on the board, and so on. You will learn about ocean currents and how to be safe in the water. Then we will take you to the ocean for about an hour and forty-five minutes. You can apply everything you learned as you take your first waves. Our instructors are ocean-certified lifeguards and professional surf instructors, who are experts and enthusiasts, providing you with the best conditions, using the best equipment, and in the most fun way.

Misael is an excellent teacher and a very personable one. My son rode his surfboard on the very first time. The other student, also a first timer like me, rode many waves standing like he's done it before. I did a couple of times but I keep falling because my sense of balance is so off even while walking due to vertigo. It was really an excellent, rainy, morning that's best for surfing!

We had a blast surfing with Misael! Both my husband and I stood up almost every wave. He picks the smartest location for beginner surfers and gives a great lesson to begin!

Prior to booking our surf lesson we heard that Misael was an incredibly talented surfer and well known around the area. Upon meeting up with Misael he had already scouted a potential location for our beginner lesson, but mentioned the waves were much too calm to surf. This really set the tone for me as he genuinely seemed to want to ensure we had the best experience possible. Upon arriving to Playa Cocles just down the road Misael walks us through safety tips including being aware of the rip tides off the beach, a breakdown of the parts of the board, as well has techniques on how to properly stand up once you catch a wave. He then took us out for some first hand experience. Misael was extremely patient and always encouraging throughout the entire lesson. We started in the white water to get accustomed to standing up. Once we seemed to get the hang of it he asked if we wanted to try out the more challenging waves a bit further out from the beach. He always prepared us for what to expect so I never felt surprised or beyond my skill level at any point. We caught wave after wave and felt tired but rewarded by the end of our session. I left the beach that day grinning ear to ear at having walked away from one of the best experiences on water that I've ever had. Thanks Misael for an experience we'll always remember.
