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.

Took some surf lessons. Everyone stands up first lesson. Super safe, super fun. I told Amit he was like Santa Claus handing out gifts to everyone. Everyone was laughing and yelling. He had 2-3 helpers there also. I did really good for a 66-year-old. His wife runs the shop and it is real easy to connect with them via email.... More

The instructors are very clear, patient, positive and encouraging. Surfing is not easy, and can be intimidating for beginners. Amit and his crew brought us to a beach that wasn't crowded and had terrific waves. The lessons were short (about 90 minutes) but that was about perfect, because surfing for beginners is exhausting. Plan on multiple days worth of lessons... More

Well, after 3 years of going to Santa Teresa and heaving the best times in the water, We owed it to Amit, Merav (Ben, Mia, Kiani and Dog) and their wonderful team (Edward, Vladi, Luna, Matan, Ismaël) to write a "advise". You can still learn on every level, and still have lots of fun. Safety is their first concern,yet every... More

Wow what a great morning we have had with Amit and his great team! We were very nervous (over 40) beginner surfers, and didn't believe that he could get us up and surfing in one lesson, the positive attitude and enthusiasm that comes from everybody almost wills you to do it ! Not only did we both stand we had... More

As a beginning surfer, there may be no better place on earth to learn. Amit, wife Marev, and their staff are amazing. So knowledgable and encouraging. And, Playa Hermosa where they surf is perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Get lucky, and go to Del Soul Surf School.

Me and my friends rented boards from 3 different places around Santa Teresa and this definetly was the best. The other two made us pay for dings that we didn't make. This place was chill and it even was possible to change boards during our rental.
