Surfing for us is more than a sport, it's a way of life.



We see the sport of surfing as a combination of calm and stress, explosive energy, and flow, just like life.

review kids surf lesson tamarindo costa rica

Kerri, Family Group Lesson

My kids and I all took lessons together and had a fantastic time. The following day, I booked my boys in an additional lesson, and they were learning even more turns and maneuvers. I couldn't believe how quickly the kids progressed with Tidal Wave instruction. I highly recommend Tidal Wave for personalized lessons
