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 a 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, yoga 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.

“Our week was really amazing! We were blown away by how passionate all the coaches are about both surfing and teaching. The coaching is based on actual, thoughtful technique (not the norm for surf lessons) – including great education sessions on-land. There is great value if you have never surfed, or if you’ve been shredding for years. I’ve surfed for…”

“We just returned from the most amazing week at Surf Simply. We cannot wait to book our next trip. My husband and I found Surf Simply about 5 years ago when looking for video tutorial to help us with our surfing. We found Ru’s “White Board Wednesdays” and were amazed at how much his tutorials helped us. At that moment…”
