Technical coaching, of a standard as high as any mainstream sport, is now available for surfing. Surf Simply’s one and two week, all inclusive courses in Nosara, Costa Rica, have changed the way surfing is taught.

Unlike conventional surf schools, this isn’t about standing up. At Surf Simply we identify the many specific skills behind the sport and then break down the mechanisms, making surfing accessible to everyone. Our team of 7 ISA and ILSF qualified coaches are surf geeks who work with just 12 guests each week, replacing ambiguous surf lingo with clear, concise, systemized coaching. We don’t teach you how to surf. We teach you how to teach yourself how to surf, or surf better through a combination of video feedback, theory lessons and in-water coaching.

Simply buy your plane ticket and we take care of everything else. We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to our resort where you can share, or have your own private bungalow. We will have already asked you about your surfing experience and goals and your preferences regarding every detail of your trip from massages, stretch classes and food, to extra activities like stand up paddle boarding, zip lining or horseback riding. After your stay we’ll give you all your photos, video footage and even a bespoke film about your week with us. You will leave filled with enthusiasm and a solid understanding of the sport, having received the most enjoyable surf coaching available, at one of the world’s safest, most picturesque and consistent surf spots.You can check our availability here and email us to book your stay.

“The place is amazing. The instructors are all great. Everyone helps you and encourages you, just not your coach. I had Derek for the week and he was just the best. Always positive and whether you realized it or not he was pushing you to do your best. The food by Dennis and Eduardo made Surf Simply the best restaurant…”

“After reading the reviews, looking at pictures, watching endless videos of guests raving about everything from the quality of coaching, waves, beach, meals, lectures, massages, and Lulu’s muffins, I expected that I was in for a productive and good time. The truth? Surf Simply actually under promises and over delivers. I know it seems hard to believe because the reviews…”

“A week at Surf Simply is like being in a choreographed production, except it’s all real. I went back over the holidays for the 3rd year in a row, and they’ve nailed it every time. It’s truly personalized surf instruction with a 1:1 or 2:1 student-to-coach ratio that feels like there are 8 sets of watchful eyes ready to offer…”
