You can't go wrong with Young Vision. Manuel and his crew are truly passionate about what they do and where they live. We just took one afternoon lesson, but we learned a lot about surfing, and also about the local area and ecology. And of course, we all stood up! We're grateful for a beautiful afternoon that we'll always remember.

Great teachers, safe, fun and perfect for young children. Our two children aged 7 and 11 loved it and after one lesson were confidently standing up on the boards. They took safety very seriously and made sure they kept the group number small so that the children got one to one help. We would really recommend anyone to have lessons with Young Vision. We can't wait to surf again!

Young Vision in the best, don't look further! My friends and I took lessons from Manuel, Nego, Joseph, and Dillon and had no regrets. Manuel was my instructor and not only was he professional, experienced, and fun but he cared for all of our safety. I'm still amazed at how he kept his eyes on all the students while managing to successfully teach me how to get up on my board. These guys taught our whole team of friends how to surf...we all have work ahead of us but everyone caught waves. Manual runs a great crew and they became like family to me. I would definitely go back to surf with them or just hangout! Love these guys. The beach, Playa Grande, they take you to is beautiful, has great breaks, and lots of space. They are local, know their beaches well, and care...don't go with anyone else.

You will not regret his experience. I am beyond thankful to have met Manuel. I’ve had extreme Blue Crush dreams since I was 13 and after spending the week working with Manuel, I have the confidence that I can carry this into my real life in California.

Manuel is truly a gifted teacher and has the most amazing team surrounding him- Joseph and Naggo are BEYOND amazing as well.

I cannot remind them enough!!!
