SURF LESSONS

Surfing is what

we know and love.

The practice of surf is an activity that can be enjoyed individually, with a group of friends or as a family, regardless of age. At Tico Surf Lessons, the first priority is safety. For this reason, each lesson begins with a detailed explanation of how to manage your board correctly in the water; thus preventing any accidents. Following safety, instructors will demonstrate and teach the correct methods for standing up on the board, how to paddle, and what kind of waves to take depending on the skill level of the individual.

Every lesson with Tico Surf Lessons is 100% satisfaction guaranteed. If you are not completely satisfied with your surf experience, we will refund your money in full. The personal promise that Erly Farrier makes to his students: You will leave your lesson having learned something new, no matter your surf skill level.

BEGINNER LEVEL

Start surfing on the “white water” (after the wave break). Gain confidence and balance with the instructor always at your side, explaining and correcting your foot-body position while also providing helpful tips to improve your surf skills.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL

Start to catch “green waves” (before the wave break). At this level, your instructor will begin to teach students how to read the ocean; anticipate what waves they can ride and when to start paddling. Also they will begin to shape the surf style of the student.

ADVANCED LEVEL

Start to ride the wave right or left, depending on ocean conditions. At this level the instructor will help form the surf skills of the student and teach some basic tricks, such as “cut-backs”, and “floaters”.
