From the moment Sigrid picked us up at our Villa in Playa Flamingo, until we departed from a cool little surf shop just outside of the Playa Grande beach- everything was top notch. We had 3 first timers and 2 others in the party who had only surfed one other time. The skill set, the patience, and the overall professionalism... More

Four of us did lessons with Carlos and Oscar: my boys (9,13, and 15) were surfing early and well and I managed to get up on the board (hooray). It was a great experience and the tema at Point Break were super helpful with everything!!!!

I have been surfing before but it was a few years back, so basically I was starting all over again very rusty. I decide I needed a refresher course and I was not disappointed in taking it. Upon meeting owners Rich and Sigrid and surf instructor Angelo they had me confident with what board I needed and excited about getting... More

When we planned our trip to Costa Rica, surfing was at the top of our list of things to do. Rich and Sigrid were recommended by a friend and they were awesome! I had never surfed before and after a quick lesson on the beach from Angelo I got up on my first wave! We had such a great time... More

I really cannot recommend this company enough. It was a spur of the decision and I was really shocked they could even accommodate us. My husband was VERY reluctant and really accompanied me under protest. I called at 9:30 am asking if there was any possibility for two adults sometime today. The owner checked the tide charts and made it... More

Rich, Sigrid, and Koki really have something special here. They were recommended by several people I talked to, and now I know why. What a fantastic experience! After not having surfed in 20+ years,they got me catching waves, standing up, and riding them in within the first hour in the water, unbelievable! Everyone in the group stood up, even those... More

We had never surfed before, and Richard, Angelo and Sigrid made the entire trip an awesome experience. Angelo and Richard were fantastic teachers, guides and assistants. Sigrid made the logistics easy. Best of all, the surfing was incredible. I've never had such a feeling before. I recommend these people, and the whole Latitude Surf Experience to anyone visiting Guanacaste! Thank... More

The main reason for our trip to Costa Rica was to try surfing. My husband and I had a blast. Even though the salt water became to much for us, it inspired us to seek out more water adventures back in Canada. I would definitely recommend surfing with this company.
