My 14 year old daughter and I spent 5 days with Young Vision Surf. Each day was a treasure of learning, playing, laughing, safety, connections and fun. Up and surfing with confidence by day two. We learned that Surfing is much more than a board and the waves. It’s a way of being and it was a gift to experience this in such a meaningful and heartfelt way. We felt the Pura Vida culture. The Young Vision Surf team is truly exceptional.

I had the best experience learning to surf with Manuel and Rainer. They were patient and capable. I felt safe and that I had the tools I needed to surf. I took four days of lessons and now feel confident that I can surf on my own.

Manuel was the nicest, most patient and effective teacher. His instructions were clear and had both my friend and me up on our boards within the first few tries. You can't go wrong with Young Vision Surf if you're in the area and looking for a great experience.

Surfing lessons with Manuel and Jozef were extraordinary! The hike to playa grande was stunning during which Manuel passionately shared all his wildlife knowledge with us. Upon arrival we were greeted by many monkeys, birds and other colorful creatures. The surf lessons were simply top-notch, with many opportunities to take waves, lots of instructions and encouragement, and most importantly, always feeling safe as they stayed very close with us in the water. During the break we got Fresh fruits and Pipa drink (coconut) and feedback for improving our skills. After our second surfing lesson, Manuel took us to a secret river spot which was super refreshing and simply marvelous. In short, you buy a surf lesson, but actually what you get is an unforgettable 360° Tico Experience! Highly recommended!

Surfing with Manuel was the best experience I've had so far. Doesn't matter if it's your first or your 5th time surfing.. If you are near Montezuma or Santa Teresa make sure you book a lesson. You will not regret it!

Had the most wonderful time at this surf lesson! Manuel is the nicest person you’ll ever meet! Both our teachers (the other one is named Tavo:)) where very good and pedagogic!! I would never think I could stand up on the board after one lesson but with their help I did! Santa Teresa is a really wonderful place to and you can’t go there and not try surfing! Manuel also was our guide on a tour to a beautiful waterfall which I truly recommend as well! Seriously 10/10 experience can’t wait to come back!

Swedish: Hade en underbar surflektion med Young vision! Manuel som har detta företaget är en extremt härlig människa! Både han och den andra surfläraren vid namn Tavo var jätteduktiga. Väldigt pedagogiska. Jag trodde verkligen inte jag skulle lyckas stå på brädan men det gjorde jag! Santa Teresa var generellt en underbar stad och är man där måste man prova surf! Manuel var dessutom vår guide på en tur till ett vattenfall även detta var underbart. Seriöst 10/10 upplevelse vill tillbaka! Riktigt goa killar med den härliga Costa Rica viben

Pura Vida!

When I started this surfing adventure I didn’t know much about surfing, and was a bit nervous. But after meeting Manuel and his team I felt ready, safe and relaxed. With private lessons my needs where met and every lesson was perfectly customised for me. After some days at the playa grande they followed my progress and took me to another surf spot with different waves and other challenges.
By the end of the week I managed to catch waves and surf by myself and I now feel like I have both the skills and the knowledge to rent a board and practice on my own, which was my goal:)!
Also, I didn’t only learn how to surf but also how to look out for myself in the waves. And as it turns out, it’s really not that scary when you know what to do. This is why it’s SO very essential who your teacher is, and this is also why I’m writing this review, to all of you out there looking for a place to start your surfing career, this is the place;)

I went for a surfing lesson at Playa Grande with a few friends and had the most amazing time learning the first steps of standing on the board. The instructors made it a lot of fun and were really good at explaining and showing us the key positions and where we were doing things wrong. The boards are located next door and that makes it easier to carry them! One of the best things to do in Montezuma definitely, highly recommend!

I saw a sign advertising Young Vision Surf School and being someone who has never surf thought I’d try it. Young Visions was amazing! The instructors were outstanding, great English, very patient, definitely wanted you to learn and took their time with you to make sure you were able to stand up. They provide a snack mid way through the session and looked up what time the best ride would be to learn to surf! For first timers or still beginners this is definitely the surf school you will want to check out when visiting Montezuma. 100% would recommend. Thank Reiner and the other instructor for everything!
