I would highly recommend anyone needing to rent a surfboard to do it from here. You can do it for a couple of hours for only $10. I have all the places we looked this is beyond the rare.

We are a family of 4, with a little experience surfing. Kids are 10 and 12. We came with the intention to rent boards and ended up loving the guys at Agua Tibia so much that we did a family surf lesson (there was no problem accommodating all our varying ability levels). Then, we loved that lesson so much that... More

We've been going to Nosara for 7 years - the guys at Aqua Tibia are consistently the best! We've rented boards, bikes and had the kids take lessons. Fair and flexible.

These guys are the best! I have surfed in many locales and I have to say that Adrian and his team are some of the best instructors/surf guides I have met. They are knowledgeable and have the skill to teach people of all levels. I just came back from Nosara and was with a friend who had never surfed before.... More

Rented boards and got a few surfing lessons with Andrew. He was amazing - flexible, encouraging and above all - knowledgeable. I've been surfing for 10 years now and he was able to diagnose some small issues, that when fixed made it possible for my surfing to go the next level. Will definitely come back again.

Agua Tibia surf school is a short walk from the beach. It is a casual, very friendly place. Every employee we talked with was helpful and easy going. We were fortunate to have an amazing instructor, Adrian. He was so kind, patient, and very knowledgeable about how to teach surfing, even to two retirees with no prior experience! In no... More

Went to Costa Rica to learn to surf with a friend for her 60th birthday. Auga Tibia had been recommended to her and it could not have been a better experience. Adrian was an excellent instructor - very knowledgeable, able to quickly evaluate our various levels and adapt the lesson to each individuals needs. He was also really calm which... More

We came to Costa Rica specifically to visit Agua Tibia after receiving a recommendation from a friend. We were total beginners and Adrian was our instructor. He was extremely patient and gave constructive criticism to help us improve even over a short period of time. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The entire staff was friendly and... More

My daughter (10) and I have been surfing in LA for over a year and wanted to take it to the next level. Adrian was an amazing instructor who really focused on each of our abilities and offered first rate technical advice to do just that. He's a great guy, as are all the people we met at Agua Tibia....

We were lucky; led to Agua Tibia by a champion surfer of our acquaintance, my middle daughter made tremendous gains in a very short time due to owner Adrain's keen analysis of each and every ride. She and I were beginners, had never surfed; she is 22 and sprang up like a bunny; I am 60 and was not as... More
