Learn from a certified surf instructor

Cabo Matapalo, the hidden surf paradise

Experienced surfers say Cabo Matapalo has one of the best waves on the Earth. Beginner surfers say it has the best beaches to learn how to surf. As the point break waves are almost empty, the beaches are clean and the surrounding nature is unbelievably pure, no surprise that this unique location attracts many surf enthusiasts to take their skills to the next level.

Cabo Matapalo is located in the south of Costa Rica, on the Osa Peninsula. It offers beaches for all surf levels, all year around.

Surf coaching for all levels

While Cabo Matapalo offers beaches for every surf level, I also have the experience of coaching beginner to advanced level surfers.


You have never been on a surfboard before, but you have always wanted to give it a go. In level 1, we start with the basics of surfing and water safety. Learn how to paddle, pop up, and catch waves!
Level 1 may be a good option for those who have surfed before, but without any prior coaching or if a long time has passed. A great option for those looking to start from scratch!


You are able to paddle out past broken waves and you are catching your own waves. You may occasionally need an extra push into the wave or assistance with line-up positioning and wave selection. You have an understanding of turning and trimming along the wave, but could use improvement in this area.

Intermediate or Higher

You have been surfing for at least a few years and are fully capable of surfing alone. You are able to link turns and do basic maneuvers, but would like to improve or build upon your current skill set.
