I’m a keen surfer back home so did a quick google before landing in CR. All the reviews for Andrew and his team where excellent and I had high hopes when I booked him up. He did not disappoint one bit. He took my wife and I to deserted spot with perfect 3ft peeling waves rolling in. We left my wife with one of his other instructors and We paddled our back to catch some of the bigger surf. Warm water, bright sunshine and a great selection of boards. 2 hours flew by. Never ending supply of rights and lefts meant my backside surfing really improved with some extra tips from Andrew. Can’t recommend him and Point Break enough, booked up another day later this week 😀

We’ve had surfing lessons before and it never felt like surfing was meant for us. After two lessons we felt a lot more confident! Thank you so much Andrew and Katy for making our time in Playa Flamingo even better.

I loved the semi-private surf lessons. They took us to a private place and the waves were great. Andrew and Koki were great and gave great recommendations for other things to do.

We took our first family surf lesson with Andrew and his team. We booked a private lesson. We have three boys (12 and 7 year old twins) and because of Andrew and Rich our boys rocked it. Mom and dad weren't terrible either. Everyone got the coveted picture riding a wave! The crew took us to what felt like a private location on an amazing beach. "Juicy" the puppy surf instructor is the most adorable and amazing dog on the planet. For a bunch of first timers, Andrew and Rich were so committed to making our experience fun a and successful (and safe) and they did a great job. If we had more time we would have done a few more days of surfing with Andrew. See you next time. Cheers, P

We took our first surf lesson with our 10 and 12 year old girls with Andrew and Katie. Andrew took us to a remote beach that was quiet and not a lot of surfers to crash into to. He told us all the safety rules and we practiced on the beach. Everyone had a great time and they were both great teachers. We enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again. Highly recommend Andrew and his team for surf lessons.
