If you wanna try surfing for the first time, if you are looking for a chance to improve your skills, if you are a pro and just need a guide to discover local spots - visit Manuel. Me and my friend have an intermediate level and it was our best surfing experience ever with Young Vision Surf School. Descent price, best service and astonishing locations were included, snacks and lots of information about the country, nature and local fauna were a bonus. You can stay at Montezuma or Santa Teresa and just call Manuel to have your own surfing adventure with this guys. Wish Manuel will continue doing what he is doing because he is doing great! And we will be back one day for a surf and his company 🤙

I took my first ever surf lesson with Dillon. He is a patient instructor and did a terrific job with a first timer. Dillon pointed out several interesting things during the walk to Playa Grande and obviously is a great steward of the local environment. When we return to the area I will definitely be taking more lessons with Young Vision Surf.

Our lesson started with a small hike through the park, where Dillon explained much about the area which was a great bonus. To summarise, the surf lesson was fantastic and Dillon was so patient. We spent lots of time in the water with expert guidance. I was standing up and riding the waves in no time which I was really happy about.

Highly recommend!

I had an amazing time surfing with Manuel in Santa Teresa / Playa Hermosa. I booked a group lesson but ended up lucking out with a private session, since the others going out that day were more advanced than I was. From beginning to end, this was a great experience. Manuel was super positive, energetic, and knowledgable. He'd give feedback after every run, which helped me make big improvements from beginning to the end of the lesson. I only wish I had more time with him!

I had one of the best trips of my life thanks to them. Could have not been better. Surf lessons were perfect, at the perfect spot! Not too difficult for beginners, not to easy for people who's not their first time surfing. The instructors were professional, caring and helpful. I caught some of the best rides of my life with their help and had the best time. They also provided mid-morning snacks (fresh pineapple, watermelon, coconut) and showers right by the beach. The owner, Manuel, is funny, smart, approachable and super helpful. If you go to Montezuma, they're your people, you need to use their services, because your experience will be 100% perfect! Amazing overall.

Mannie and his crew provided great instruction that allowed for several successful surfing sessions during our visit to Costa Rica. They were able to meet the needs of our entire group, very beginner to intermediate confident surfers. We had fun and felt like we were in paradise drinking from coconuts and snacking on fresh fruit after each surf session. This is a personalized experience. We will return to Young Vision Surf next trip!

We just came back from Montezuma at the beautiful NYA hotel that I recommend. Manuel is a strong character, fun and the kids listen to him. He also grew up in the very beach, he know what time is best to surf, they apply this amazing war paint sun protection on the kids face and explained to them that we have to stay safe in the wave mostly by listening to them and he reminded them how important it is to protect yourself from the sun. Joseph is a great instructor as well ! They proposed to us surf lesson with YouNo vision surf school. My boys are 6 and 9 years old, we had an other friend with us, 9 years ild as well. I was nervous as first but the team is so professional, they took Theo my youngest one and he stand on the surf like he had surf all his life ! The team is wonderful, we had a mid lesson snack of fresh fruits right on the beach on a shaded area under the jungle trees. Of course I lived the friendly, fun instructors but what I appreciated more that anything was how safe it was, there instructions were clear and you can see that all the kids respect and listen to them, we practiced in the send many position, safety measure and they made sure everyone including watching parents, understand it all. We were in the water with them as I was nervous for my little ones but I could have easily step away and suntan while they were with the safest instructors. I strongly recommend this company, especially for young kids and family.

I learned how to stand up, take a wave by myself and open a coconut in 5 surf lessons in joy and good vibes. It was a real pleasure to learn with really good advices to always improve and keep you motivated (even to paddle more and more).

We did three days of surfing with Manuel. He was the best surfing teacher ever. He is professional, watches out for you and is respectful. He’s also a very kind person in general and we had the best time with him. :) As he’s a local and grew up right at the beach we were surfing at, he could show and tell us many interesting things about the history and nature. If you are looking for a surfing school I would highly recommend!

Also fresh fruit is included!
