What you'll do

We'll start this adventure at the Tamarindo Surf Break, we can meet next to Las Olas market. You'll receive a friendly welcome from myself :) Once you have saved all your personal items in our lockers, I'll give you a rashguard and help you to choose the best board for you ;) Now it’s time to put on sunscreen and we're going to the beach!!! First I’ll give you all the necessary information and safety tips before entering the water (we'll see a bit of theory and talk about the conditions of the swell around 20 minutes), then stretching a little, learn to paddle and how to stand up on the board at the shore. Once you practiced a bit… We are ready to go and catch some waves =) I always be close to you and give you tips to take your Surfing to the next level. After almost 2 hours in the water, we’ll return to the meeting point so you can take a shower and drink some water. ***We offer daily lessons at 9 am, 12 pm and 3 pm, the set time can be changed by any of these options, just write us a message and we will arrange it for you :)

Christian

Hey ... Pura Vida! :) I'm Chris a Professional Surf Instructor and Iguana Surf Shop manager. I've more than 20 years living in Tamarindo and 15 years that surfing is my passion, my hobby and my job. I love sharing the art of surfing, as well as instilling respect and awareness towards our beaches and seas. These 15 years I have been "Standing up on the board" to all our customers who easily become our friends =) For me surfing is my day to day, is to have fun and feel that connection with the ocean... and I always try to transmit it! I have seen many people who take their first class with us and end up falling in love with Surfing. During the class I will always be close to you, supporting, taking care of your safety and giving you the best tips to improve your technique after every wave!
