This exciting lesson allows you to take a river tour and try out surfing at the same time! Based at Playa Cocles, One Love Massage and Surf School is based on the Atlantic coast of Costa Rica, south of Puerto Viejo in the Caribbean lowland Zone. The small village has just a couple of stores and a school, but the local community has come together and contributed to pay for lifeguard services in order to keep the beach a safe place to swim. This service is not very common and makes for some of the safest surfing in Costa Rica for beginners.

Rather than the regular trip in a truck to the beach, you will instead paddle down the River Cocles on your surfboard to reach the break. On the way you will pass monkeys, turtles, river otters, and fish, as well as other wildlife, which will probably be undisturbed by your silent passage. 

Upon arrival at the mouth of the river, you go onto the beach for a safety talk, some beach exercises to warm up and to practice jumping up on your board. After this, you enter the ocean, where your instructor will assist you to catch waves by encouraging and pushing when necessary.

This awesome beginner surf lesson is the perfect introduction to surfing in Costa Rica. It’s an amazing opportunity to get surfing instruction for the best price.
