Local Surf Lessons

We’ll talk about everything from ocean mechanics to the technical aspects of surfing a wave. It’s thorough, its fun, and it’s cheap! Want more than one lesson? Perfect, let’s talk about a package so you can keep progressing and honing in your skills the entire length of your stay! As you improve, we can even visit new destinations, surf new waves!

Nomad Surf Trip (4 hour trip! Sunrise or Sunset!!)
This is where the adventure begins! Got to know your local beach well enough? How about taking a trip to a new beach, check out new waves and new places. Enjoy new experiences! This is where Nomads differ from every other surf school ever. It’s not a commercial surf lesson, we go scout for waves, hang out on deserted beaches, surf, explore, and relax. Not to mention you get to do a bunch of sight-seeing on the way. It’s much more than a surf lesson, you spend the day with a local surfer and live the pura vida life as only a local can. Don’t need a lesson? Let us video your session and come out with footage and pictures!
(price includes pretty much everything: 90min surf lesson, guide, board rental, beach camp, and transport! We’ll pick you up from your house if you like!)
