Your coaching with us also includes:

Pool sessions on paddling, duck diving and turtle rolling.
Video & Aerial Photography analysis to break down form and timing. Video coaching enables us to show you exactly what you look like and what you need to do to. It brings in line what you think you are doing, with what you are actually doing. Allowing you and your coach to review your body movements and positioning.
Theory class to help you understand how to choose the right waves, swell forecasting, board design and surf etiquette. Theory classes will also cover the skill sets that you will be working on with your instructor on the next planned surf session.
Our Famous Surf Break
(Beginner to Advanced Beach Breaks)
Located just across the estuary to the north of Tamarindo is the remote beach of Playa Grande. Playa Grande is part of the Las Baulas National Park and is a famous nesting ground for Leatherback Turtles. Due to its unique southerly orientation, Playa Grande magnifies all south swells while also picking up those from the northwest. This feature makes Playa Grande one of the most consistent spots in Costa Rica and caters to all ability levels.
What Is Your Surfing Level?
Before arriving at Point Break Surf Camp and beginning your surf experience, communicating with us your current skills and experience allows your coach to plan your week to maximize your progress. Using our level system will allow us plan your learning along side one or two other surfers who are at the same level as you. We never mix ability levels within groups. Here is a summary of which skills are specific to each level and the goal of each.
Beginners and also surfers who need to learn carving, accelerating and the functional stance in the white water.
Goal: This is the first step on your journey. If you want to build a solid foundation of skills to get up and riding or maybe you have had a lesson before but need a refresher – you will start the week as a Boardrider. We will help you safely build confidence catching and riding unbroken waves, allowing your comfort zone to increase gradually to the ocean environment.
Starting to catch unbroken waves with the help of an in-water coach and attempting to surf across the face.
Goal: Are you ready to shift your surfing up a gear? If you have mastered standing in the whitewater, been catching green waves now and then & now want to catch consistently clean waves, feel the rush of sliding down the line (knowing to go right or left) and sit “out the back” – Cruisers suits you. Our coaches will get you into the line up and taking off on some clean, green waves with proper angled take offs, trimming and body position to set you up for the next level
Consistently catching and trimming down the line in unbroken waves up to head high, without an in-water coach.
Goal: Want to stake your claim at the local spot? Carvers is for surfers riding unbroken waves front & backside and are comfortable sitting in the line up. Harness the speed of the ocean and unlock the turns you have been dreaming of. You’ll be trimming down the line & carving clean arcs before the week is out.
