Awesome surf shop, rented great boards and gave us no trouble extending and returning the boards. They recommended great surf spots.

Broke my GoPro case in my trip through Central America and this was the only place to have GoPros and also accessories. They also offer a wide variety of surfing gear so makes it nice for it all in one place.

The surf was up (of course it's Nosara) and our 3 instructors successfully taught ten recent high school graduates and a chaperone (me) how to ride the waves! My instructor, Josito, was excellent. The adrenaline rush when I caught that first wave into shore was undeniable, and I couldn't wait to do it again! Thanks so much to the gang... More

As are most places in Guiones, the place is underestimated, when indeed they are the best, BEST, coleslaw fish tacos in costa rica. Remember to bring cash and to buy organic drinks and beers in the next door supermarket.

We typically rent our surfboards here, when surfing in Nosara. They have a great selection of boards and the staff and owner are friendly. The in-town actual storefront also has tacos available outside and they're good.

My husband and I were lucky to have Luigi as our surf instructor for 3 days. One of the first things he told us is that he wanted us to learn to surf independently...no hand-holding...we were going to learn to pick and catch our own waves. And within a few tries that's exactly what we did. Luigi's technical advice was... More
