• Tamarindo Surf Lessons

Beginner Surf School Program

Witch’s Rock Surf Camp will make your dream of learning how to surf come true. Since we started out as beginning surfers just like yourself, we understand how difficult it can be trying to learn to surf. Our Beginner Surf School program provides a friendly and safe environment for mastering the core skills needed to become a competent surfer.

With our expert surf instructors by your side, you will learn the most important concepts of surfing including ocean and surfboard safety, surfing etiquette, proper paddling technique, and perfecting your pop-up (standing up). Gain confidence in the water. Unlearn any bad habits you have been forming up until now. Form a solid understanding of how and why waves break, how to control your surfboard once you’re up and riding, and the equipment you’ll need to continue developing your skills.

This program is for people who have never put their foot on a board, have surfed once or twice before or someone who does it on and off and is really looking to get to the intermediate level and we will teach you everything you need to continue to improve after your vacation ends..

Lead by our surf instructors, these are interesting, informative, and fun. They are a great way to meet other people at the camp. Topics include surf science, safety, paddling, and surf etiquette. These are recommended for beginners and intermediate surfers, and advanced surfers are welcome to join for a refresher, or to share your experience.
Did we forget to mention that our onsite resident, Robert August leads a couple of our very informative seminars that you just can’t miss!

There is no better way to learn. Not only will you watch video footage of yourself surfing, your instructor will watch it with you to give you constructive feedback.

By Friday, you will have a whole new level of skill, so we will take a surf trip to one of our nearby beaches to test those skills on new waves. This mini-trip will leave you feeling confident and empowered in the water.You might feel like your friends and family at home wouldn’t believe it. That’s why we get it all on film!
