It was our first ever set of surf lessons, and we were really happy with everything - the instructor (Luiz), the learning approach, the setting (Uvita is the perfect place to learn surfing), and the consideration that the owner/company had towards my mom when she couldn't participate in the second lesson due to hurting her knee (not related to surfing). Thank you Luiz & Travis!

Thanks katerinam826 for making time to share your experience! We enjoyed having you join us for the 2-Day Surf Clinic. You progressed very quickly and were able to practice and complete many of the drills all on your own. Creating independent surfers is very important and we hope you continue to surf. We were more than happy to consider your mom's injury (not related to surfing) and hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Costa Rica. Cheers!

We had a great beginning surf lesson with Bodhi. Our instructor was fun and knowledgeable, and was able to give us solid instruction so that we could practice surfing our first time out. The lesson was prompt, well organized, and fun!

We ended up booking three different sessions over a couple weeks with Travis and his team. Big kids. Little kids. Adults. They were so thorough and patient and got us in the water quickly and all the kids up and surfing almost immediately. Everyone had an amazing time! It's such a beautiful beach that Travis takes you to, and almost no one there. The water was perfectly warm.

Bodhi Surf + Yoga is not only giving you the taste of surfing they actually teach you how to surf. I have been surfing with them for the past 10 stays here in Uvita and it's the best experience I have had. There is no comparison. They go over the technics on the beach and then show you how to put them in action in the water. First in the white water and if you are ready also in the green waves. They are making sure you are experiencing the fun elements of surfing but also push you to the next skill level. Most importantly you will feel safe with Bodhi and I guarantee you you will have a smile on your face afterwards and come back for more.

This is my second time with Bodhi surf, what a humble experience again. I just recently had three lessons with Bodhi Instructor and Founder Travis Bays. Hands down, I´ve learned and understand the sea with him more than anyone else so far. Travis also implemented a video session on the first day, so it was clear which areas I had to work on more to really improve. They are so professional, super careful and knowledgeable on when and how to push your limits so you can go that extra mile. The great thing with Bodhi is their broad level of expertise. I did my first lessons some time ago as a full beginner and now a little more intermediate.. and the amount of learning each time has been mind blowing. What I recommend about Bodhi is how serious and passionate they are about what they do, their love to teach, to challenge the students, to enjoy the ocean. Thanks Travis and Pili for all you guys teach us in many ways.

Thank you 477teya for sharing your experience with us. We enjoyed sharing our professional surf instruction with you to help you overcome your mental barriers in the ocean. We also hope the additional video footage helped you better understand some of the small details that you can improve to surf that much better. Excellent job out there, we hope to surf with you again.
