Del surf school is located on beautiful Playa Santa Teresa, on the pacific side of Costa Rica.

We host daily surf lessons for all levels from Beginners through Intermediate.

Surf lessons are scheduled according to ocean conditions and tide charts, we set the lessons at the best time during the day, this way we can promise optimal conditions, safety and fun.

All surf lessons are group classes with a good ratio of 1 surf instructor per 2.5 Surfers participants.

All crew members include Amit Londner, owner and founder, are qualified, certified, lifeguard and first-aid trained and certified, all are profesional well experienced with teaching surfing and very friendly.

Beginners surf lesson will set on "white water", a safe zone where the water height get to the surfers chest height maximum so that the surfer will have full control on his body. These white water provide a mellow and gentle waves, yet strong enough to take the beginner on a smooth raid all the way to the shore.

Intermediate surf lessons, when conditions allow us we would love to take those surfers how wishes to improve their surfing and move on the next level in surfing.

My husband and I have never surfed, being in Santa Teresa we had to try it. Amit and the team are great, within 10 minutes of arrival we were surfing! He's very passionate and great for beginners. The whole experience was awesome and now both my husband and I want to continue surfing!

For our one year anniversary, I purchased my husband and I a semi-private lesson with Amit at Del Soul Surf School. From our very first email correspondence (about a month before we arrived in CR), Amit and his lovely wife were quick to respond and very easy to communicate with. Upon our arrival in Santa Teresa we met them at... More

Amit and his team had us up surfing literally within minutes of entering the water. It's obvious that Amit is very experienced and knowledgeable at not only surfing, but instructing beginners. He very clearly explains the basics then we (2 adults & 2 kids aged 9&12) were in the water. He makes you feel very safe. I was pleasantly surprised... More

My son (13) and I (49) had 2 lessons (1.5hrs each) and by the end could stand up, catch waves and start to turn. Amit isn't just a great surf instructor, he's a great teacher. He keeps it simple, the pace is good (my son was standing within 20 mins of the first lesson) and he's good fun. The ratios... More

I'm always skeptical of so many 5 star reviews, but I figured I try them and see for myself. verdict: I LOVE the people at Del Soul! and wish I could hang out with them every day forever! Amit and Merav (and Edward and Vlady) are now some of my very favorite people on this planet. Such loving, kind, beautiful,... More

My sons, 15 & 12 were greeted warmly at the shop and then we all headed to the beautiful Playa Hermosa for their lesson. Amit was clear and made them feel confident. They both got up on their first try. He gave lots of praise and, when needed, redirection. They had a fantastic time! We will absolutely recommend Del Soul... More

Small class size (2:1 or 3:2 student teacher ratio) with personalized instruction. These guys are intuitive and know the ways of the ocean! They encouraged me and addressed my fears, and cheered me on when I succeeded. Great coaches! Also, the owner is generous with return customers: he offers you free board rental for 24 hours after your lessons.
