NOSARA Surfing

From gentle waist high walls to double overhead bombs when it comes to surfing it’s easy to see why Playa Guiones holds mass appeal for everyone from novices to seasoned surf dogs. According to National Geography, Nosara ranks as one of the worlds leading surf towns and anyone lucky enough to have caught one of the many perfect waves understands why. Warm, crystalline blue waters, a friendly line-up and surf-able waves 365 days a year combine to make this place a true surfing paradise.

Surfing is a high energy sport. In addition to the physical demands surfers need to understand ocean conditions and wave characteristics, all of which can only be gained through time and experience. Although surfing, particularly in the early stages can be tough, fear not because help is at hand.
While Nosara is a magnet for veteran wave warriors, the sheer range of conditions make it the perfect beach for beginners to fully immerse themselves in this life changing pursuit. As such, a wide range of high quality, full service surf schools now make up a vital part of the local tourism industry. Many of the instructors are local characters who have been surfing since before they could walk. They are a true pleasure to hang out and surf with, and are thrilled to be able to share their knowledge about board selection, wave selection, proper techniques, safety, and the many other aspects of what it takes to rip it up in the water. Here you will find our selection of some of the best surf schools in the area, all of whom can’t wait to get you out there and experience the ride!

Even though you can find consistent waves throughout the year, if you’re primary reason for visiting Nosara is to surf recommends you visit us between November and August when the swell size is usually larger.123
