Surf as an Insider, Never a Tourist

Personal coaching at the best breaks powered by expert local surfers

Surf Main Landing
With a little guidance from local experts, San Juan del Sur can be a surfer’s heaven on earth.

An offshore wind sculpts the waves into perfect peaks as they break onto beautiful beaches and peel away from secluded points. The water is warm, the scene un-crowded and there are waves to suit all levels.

Join us on a surf trip and you get to leverage our insider knowledge about the local surf scene; receive step-by-step personalized training and access the best breaks.

It’s all part of a focused program designed to accelerate your surfing success.


We whisk you in comfort to the right beach at the right time for the waves

You won’t be running around town trying to work out which break works best on a rising tide or find yourself crammed into an overcrowd surf shuttle. And once you get to the beach you won’t have to haggle over the only decent surf board available for rent, work out where the hazards are that you should be avoiding or worry about missing the shuttle back to town.

When traveling in our company we whisk you in comfort to the right beach at the right time for the waves.

Our instructors will check the conditions for you and chauffeur you to the best surf spots.We’ll help you choose a board to suit your style of surfing, orientate you on the ocean floor and provide you with the precise guidance you need to take you to the next level of surfing.
