Costa Rica MUST do activity

" We had an amazing experience learning to surf with Elias at SALT! As newbies to surfing, he was an incredible instructor- we felt safe in the water and he even had us standing up on the surf board! But most importantly, we had SO much fun! We have already talked about our next trip to Costa Rica and surfing with the SALT team again. We can't recommend the SALT team enough- take the chance to step out of your comfort zone and try surfing with won't regret it! "

Relearning how to surf

" SALT came highly recommended from a friend at home, so I booked a lesson for my boyfriend and I. Both of us did light surfing once before. Patsy was a perfect instructor. She ran through the basics with us on land for about 15 minutes and then took us out to meet the waves.

She was amazing at managing us both with our minimal skills, had so much patience and insight to share that allowed us both to be riding the waves by the end! I would feel comfortable trying to surf on my own after this lesson, but would still love a o have her guidance if we ever get back to Tamarindo. "

Amazing surf instructor

" Our daughter has been surfing with Elias for the past four years and every week she is so stoked for their surf sessions!
Surfing with Elias you not only get a lesson from one of the most knowledgeable surf masters- but also a coach that truly cares about safety and is always radiating positive energy and encouragement.
I Recommend Elias 100%
His patience with our daughter turned her from a brand new beginner into a girl that can’t wait for the next surf session with bigger waves!! "
