        SURF CAMP PACKAGE OPTIONS

        BEGINNER

        This package is designed for people who have never surfed before, or those who have tried surfing a few times or even longer periods but are still riding broken waves. We will teach you the sport from the ground up, starting with safety and surf basics such as paddling, popping up, stance, reading waves and safely dismounting. Once you have your basic skills down, we will begin to teaching you how to paddle past the break safely using different techniques, timing, and how to catch your own green (unbroken) waves. As the week progresses, you will most likely transition into the intermediate option and will have the opportunity to built upon your learning outcomes from the first few days.

        INTERMEDIATE

        This package is designed for those who have a significant amount of surfing experience and want to take their skills to the next level. You should be able to catch your own green (unbroken) waves, paddle out to the line up, turtle rolling, go left and right, and dismount safely. Our instructors will work closely with you to determine areas for improvement and will create a program specific for your own needs. Upon arrival, you will be tested for your skill levels to assess whether or not you are ready for intermediate lessons. If you fail the test, you will start at the beginner level and will transition into the intermediate group once our instructors are satisfied with your skill level for your safety, as well as the safety of other surfers in the water.

      • You may switch from beginner to intermediate and vice versa without extra charges.
      • We have access to a wide variety of boards, and you can try different boards throughout the course of the week.

        TESTIMONIALS

        "My time with Surf The Greats in Costa Rica changed the way I travel and my approach to wellness. With excellent teaching and coaching in great surfing spots, I now have the confidence to rent a board, head out on my own, and join the “line up”. We also had the chance to practice yoga (something totally new for me) in some beautiful tropical spaces. I couldn’t understand why I had not built this into my fitness and wellness efforts before. Now, I practice yoga a couple times per week and my body is healthier and fitter for it. Our trip to Costa Rica was amazing. The houses we stayed in were beautiful and comfortable, the beaches were stunning, and the landscapes were dramatic. Our tour leaders were encouraging, fun, and always made us feel safe. I met some wonderful people and made some great new connections. There was always a sense of solidarity amongst the group as we learned together, lived together, and supported each other out in the waves. We didn’t just learn to surf. We learned about the culture, etiquette and science of surfing too."

        November 2015 was a highlight in my life, on November 11 I made my way to Toronto airport to meet a bunch of strangers with whom I would spend the next 10 days travelling through Costa Rica hitting surf spots and exploring one of the driving force in my life, surfing. I am a total beginner but have a passion for the sport. Antonio Lennert with Surf the Greats provided me and the rest of the group with an opportunity to discover amazing surf spots and scenic areas in Costa Rica. We met with knowledgeable teachers from surf schools from the area who worked with us to improve our skills. The accommodations where we stayed where beautiful and all had their own particular unique look and feel. If you like an atmosphere of camaraderie surrounded by incredible nature as well as having the opportunity to enjoy surfing, I would totally encourage you to join Surf the Greats in one of their expeditions. Antonio is a caring and pretty amazing guy who has at heart to provide the members of his party with a safe and enjoyable trip. Pura Vida!
