A Southern California expat, I've been living and teaching surfing in Costa Rica for about 15 years. I'm raising a family in one of the most amazing places, and enjoying the simple life, known here as "pura vida."

Beyond amazing! Justin is full of knowledge and info of the area and is just an incredible surf instructor. Everyone had an incredible time and everyone got up! Exceeded our expectations and super grateful for this experience.

Justin is a super patient teacher and an all around good guy to see some sights with. He knows his way around the caves and tide pools, and took me to a beautiful waterfall that I would not have otherwise known about. Great day!

Justin was a very good guide and personalized our tour and surf instruction based on our confort level. He's very professional and pleasant. Coolest experience we've had so far, even though I couldn't get my fat a** up on the board.

The venues for this experience were beautiful and the overall experience was truly memorable. The tour started by exploring the caves along the beach and having Justin share his knowledge of the sea habitat. We then want on to learn to surf. Both my girlfriend and I were true beginners and Justin is an excellent teacher. My girlfriend, in particular, learned quickly and ended up surfing short distances. Me, let’s just say I did better “surfing” by lying on the board. The tour ended up with a short walk to a waterfall and a refreshing swim to sit underneath the waterfall. Memorable experience!!!! Justin is a true professional and a class act.

This was our first time surfing & first time in Costa Rica and Justin was a wonderful guide to both! We got up a couple times on the surf board & had a great time. The sea caves & tide pools were also an amazing addition to the surf lessons. The waterfall at the end was the best way to cool down after the humid morning. Justin was knowledgeable and a great guide throughout the experience!

This was my first time ever surfing and Justin was an excellent teacher in the water! Very knowledgeable and patient. Went on a Monday morning and we practically had the beach to ourselves. The visit to a local waterfall was really cool too! I highly recommend this experience to others if you're new to surfing! - Tate
