Our Clients Said

“Amazing surf experience. Eddie was a great and funny instructor. Very patient with a lot of experience. My friend and I were beginners and had no idea how to surf. He explained everything to us gave us good tips and took us to nice surf spots. Besides the great surf lessons he also is very knowledgeable about the nature. We went to a hike and he knew literally everything. The surfing time in Matapalo was my highlight in Costa Rica. I would definitely recommend taking lessons with Eddie.”

“Eddie is the total package! He took us on a night hike where we got to see quite a few nocturnal creatures, he gave us surfing lessons and was very patient and informative, then lastly he took us on a sunset kayaking trip which was beautiful and he took great pictures and videos for us with our camera!!! To top it off, between all of our planned adventures, we had told him we wanted to see a sloth so he went in search and found one. He said “I found one, be there in 5 minutes” and took us to see it in between his other appointments. As it turned out, it was a two toed momma and her baby!! I highly recommend Eddie!!”
