We just came back from our personal paradise in Santa Teresa. One of the main reasons why this trip was so unforgettable, unbelievable, uncomparable was definitely the time we spent with Merav, Amit, Vladi and Eduard. In the shop, on the beach, in the waves – no matter where you are with these awesome people you’re a going to have the best time of your life! We have been with Del Soul three years ago for our very first surf lessons and the way they teach is so professional, so truly friendly, so much fun with amazing fast results. Three years later the quality of their lessons is still the same or even better. With them everybody! is able to stand on the board within the first 10 minutes. There is ALWAYS a teacher (1 for max. 2 students) around you IN the water and not somewhere on the beach. So you will get the most out of every lessond and improve fast. Del Souls surf lessons mean more ore less 100% time on the board and in the waves and the (time saving and fast spoken;)) theory on the beach is reduced to the necessary minimum. Although Amit and all his instructors pay very good attention to all safety rules at all time and they teach you everything about waves, currents and how to behave as a surfer. We always felt very safe and perfectly guided to the next very individual personal level.
Actually it is much more than teaching how to surf what makes Del Soul so special. It is the positive and certain way of how they see and treat people and the way of finding something beautiful in everyone and everything. We always came to and left the lessons with the biggest smile – THANK YOU!

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.
