Wonderful Lesson for Beginner Surfers!
Feb 2020
We were a group of six who had never surfed before - three adults and three older kids. We had two other adults added to our group and then shared two instructors. Everyone in our group eventually got to ride a wave, some faster than others (I was definitely the last!) Regardless of ability, the instructors were enthusiastic, patient, and kind and really cared about our experience as first-time surfers. Price was very reasonable. Highly recommend!

Great experience for beginners wanting to learn to surf
Aug 2019
My wife and I booked a surf lesson through Chase's travel rewards system (which uses Expedia) and we were paired up with one other couple. Our instructor was Santiago and he did a great job of preparing us for how to get up on the waves, balance, and critiques to help us improve. My first few attempts were pretty bad, but by the end of the day I rode a wave all the way to the beach at least 5 times! All of us improved and Santiago was very patient and helpful with us, and he gave us some good restaurant recommendations too.

We felt the value we got for the price of this trip was exceptional, and we would definitely consider doing this lesson again.

I got up!
May 2019 • Family
This was a great experience. I was in Tamarindo with my 13 years old son for a father/son trip. He was really looking forward to the surf lessons. I had taken lessons before a couple years prior with no success. By the end of this lesson, I had successfully surfed a few waves. My son was also successful. If they can help this guy who's fat and 43 surf, they can help you!

Surf Lesson
Apr 2019 • Friends
We did so many different things in Costa Rica but learning to surf was by far the most fun! The waves were perfect and easy to learn on. Cesar was a great instructor and we booked multiple lessons with him. Can’t wait to plan a trip back and only surf everyday!

Incredible Surfing
My friend and I planned a vacation packed with activities. Native’s Way was so helpful in coordinating our adventures for us. Our favorite activity, by far, was our surf lesson with Cesar! He was knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. He made sure we were safe and provided valuable feedback to help us improve with each wave. I’m so glad we had the opportunity to learn from him.

After a couple of times trying to surf, I finally got it! Cesar was a very attentive teacher and knew very well the best way to help me to finally surf a little bit :P Of course Costa Ricas's beaches helps, haha but he was a great friend I made there. Pura vida!
