Why Our Surf Camps?

Sponsored by Billabong Camps, our Santa Teresa surf camps provide you with an educational, memorable, and fun group experience! Just footsteps from the beach, our boutique hotel is a magical and private oasis of tropical jungle and wildlife–the perfect getaway for anyone seeking great surf, relaxation, and a true Pura Vida feel. Although a group experience, our student to instructor ratio never exceeds 3 to 1, allowing each individual quality time with an instructor since our program is solely based on meeting your individual needs. During the week, as your skills progress, you may have private instruction from one of our talented instructors in order to focus entirely on your surf as an individual.

The area has several gorgeous beaches, each offering different surf breaks for amazing waves, fun group experiences, and safe areas to practice your surfing. For inexperienced surfers, we patiently educate you on all of the necessary skills–surf etiquette, knowledge of the ocean, pre-surf stretches, paddling out, and standing up–so you can go home stoked and surfing safely on your own, while having a blast along the way! If you are experienced and already know the basics of surfing, our instructors will transport you to the best surf conditions and boost your surfing to the next level. At our Santa Teresa surf camps we provide you with everything you need to have a safe and amazing experience!
