SURF COACHING

Surf Lessons for beginners & intermediate

If learning to surf has been on your bucket list or perhaps you're looking to refine your surfing skills, our team of highly professional Surf Instructors are your answer.  Playa Carrillo is the perfect beach for beginner and intermediate surfers.  The beach is picture perfect and you will not be over crowded by other surfers as you'd find in surrounding tourist spots.  Surf lessons are taught by our International Surf Association (ISA) Certified Surf Coaches who are trained as lifeguards/ocean rescue.  With years of personal surf history and successful teaching experience you will be riding waves in no time.  


Beginners will always start with on-land lessons covering safety, technique and  etiquette.  Once your instructor feels you're ready they will take you out to the ocean to practice your new skills.  Intermediate surfers or those who are more experienced will learn more advanced techniques.  When you feel ready and comfortable to move onto larger waves we can arrange a trip for you to explore surrounding breaks in the area.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HOW WE GUIDE YOU

The right surf coaching methodology, instructors and equipment will help you to progress faster and get more out of your surfing.
At Chillasana Yoga Surf we provide specialized private surf lessons for individuals and small groups. Combining our experience with a carefully structured methodology, we deliver specialist beginner, improver, and intermediate surf coaching programs that take into account your surfing goals and the different motivations of men, women and children.

COACHING 1:1 OR SMALL GROUPS

We coach 1:1 or in small groups with a maximum of 3 students per instructor. This enables us to create an environment that is tailored towards the learning needs of each person, ensuring that they have fun, and most importantly progress. This low ratio of student to instructor is especially important for surfing, where the ocean environment is beautiful and exciting but also dynamic and potentially hazardous.

PRIVATE SURF LESSONS

With private coaching you have a level of close interaction and communication with an instructor where you have the time and space to ask all the questions you need. This enables you to learn faster and feel more comfortable while giving you the skills and confidence to practice safely.
