We never surfed before and ended up taking three lessons with Amit and Vladimir. We felt like full-fledged "cool" surfers by the time we left Santa Teresa. We were able to stand up on the first run, catch our own waves on the second run, and turn on the third.

Amit is a great instructor with a no-BS attitude. We had a great time. Thanks, guys!

Learning to surf for three days with Amit and his team was the biggest fun I had in Costa Rica. Amit introduced me to surfing with such joy, trust and huge energy - my fear that I will not even get on the board was gone within minutes. I was standing on the board on day one and loved it. Amit has also challenegd me when he felt I needed a challenge and to progress. If you look for an excellent surfing coach & school this is the place to come to. Go and try, you will be rejuvenated, refreshed and full of joy.

My girlfriend and I started with a single day of lessons with Del Soul, and by the end of that first day we had booked Del Soul every day for the rest of our trip. We arrived as total novices, and Amit and Vlady excelled at showing us the way, wave by wave. They were both excellent teachers, and English-only is no problem at all. Lessons lasted between 90m-2h.

We took our 4 children for Surf Lesson with Amit and his crew. They absolutely loved the experience and haven't stopped talking about it since. They loved their instructors and had an amazing time learning how to surf. Amit reassured their safety and the instructors where never more then a few feet away from our kids. This gave us great peace of mind. Our only regrets are not joining the kids in a lesson and waiting till the last day for surfing. We all wish we could have returned the next day.... Our family is definitely going back when we return to Santa Teresa. Thanks again to Amit and his Del Soul Team for such an amazing experience. :-)

I had a surf lesson with Amit and his colleague Vladimir and it was a lot of fun. They were very patient and always encouraging to try again and what to improve. We were in the sea around an hour. The preparation before was well done and gave a good introduction what to pay attention to.
I miss Santa Teresa ;)
