Already a surfer? Then you know great surf is a combination of several elements coming together perfectly. The swell, direction, tide, wind, time of day, and season are all factors. Local knowledge is key to scoring great waves on vacation and having a great place to hang out between surf sessions is a big bonus. It's just a few reasons why surfers keep coming back to School of the World’s surf camp!

Surfboards are provided for use during class. However, to minimize the equipment loss and damage, School of the World does not loan them out after class. If you wish to surf outside of class time you will need to bring your own board or rent one from a surf shop in town. Please send inquiry for more details.

The coastline is considered to be the most consistent for surfing in all of Costa Rica, a country that is blessed with warm water and waves all year round. The biggest swells tend to hit between May and December, but surfing is perfect almost every day of the year.
