We had an amazing time. Not only because the lesson was adapted to different levels but also because the teachers are super friendly (Manuel perfect to push you and make you pogress, and Joseph to cheer you up and make sure you enjoy your time).
Furthermore, very good custumer service. They have adapted the lesson (including a break in the middle) as we were a bit tired and they surprised us with a complimentary pineapple! Thanks to them, at this moment we realised that we were in Paradise :)

Thank you again for having been able to make my mum enjoy surfing ;) You are the best!

Thank Tania B

The teachers are amazing and they only take 2-3 surfers with them so you get their full attention. They will make you practice different things once you can stand up, which is good for improving. The fruit snack is very appreciated. The walk to get to the surf spot is quite far and since the tide was really high when we came back, it was dangerous as well. Might wanna try their surfschool in Santa Teresa instead. Hope their crew is as fun and professional!

We had an awesome experience with Manuel and his team this afternoon.
The man is kind, professional, and generous.
The long walk to Playa Grande was a pleasant experience chatting this Manuel and learning about him and the area.
We all enjoyed his warm and inviting attitude and the kids had a great experience on the beach and in the water.
Call Manuel ahead of time and make the effort to work directly with him. It's worth it!

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.
