Why Caribbean Surf School?

Since 1998, Caribbean Surf School has been providing surf lessons to all levels, from beginners to advanced surfers. All our instructors are locals and have been surfing the waves of Puerto Viejo since their youngest age. Off the board, we offer adventure tours with the best service you could hope for to enjoy your vacation in Costa Rica. 

"Lessons by super smiley surf instructor Hershel Lewis are widely considered the best in town."

Lonely Planet

“Hershel is a great teacher. He can analyze and assess your technique quickly and will pick up the best waves to get you up on the board and surf. After two hours with him, you will not only be surfing but you will see the ocean differently.”

“His positive energy, pura vida and one love attitude creates an unbelievable atmosphere.”
