Great instructor

The communication leading up to the event was great and the instructor was wonderful. The only issue is the walk from shop to the beach about a 10-15 walk. There are other shops located on the beach.

Took Our Money - Awful Experience

I got quite ill the evening before my Surf Lesson with these guys. When i woke up in the morning i could hardly got out of bed. We emailed them an hour before the lesson letting them know that we couldn't attend and asked for a refund or to move the lesson to another day. The manager promised to phone us back, she never did. The assistant promised to email us, she never did. These guys basically stole our money and didn't reply to us so beware!

Pura Vida! My instructor was laid back, as you’d expect of a surfer in Tamarindo, he was also incredibly knowledgeable. He taught me the basics of surfing, and did it with true feeling for the ocean. I trusted him completely in the pounding waves and felt safe the entire time- the water was awesome for experts for a little too much for this newb! Highly recommend Alejandro and Natives Way!
