What separates CSRI from the crowd?

There are a lot of places to learn to surf around the world. What makes our Tamarindo surf school special?

CRSI's Tamarindo surf school has one goal: To provide you the most enjoyable and complete surfing experience possible. For this reason we have developed a comprehensive clinical approach to teaching surfing.

We are not a surf shop, a hotel or a restaurant like most of our competitors and we have no agenda to push except getting you up on the waves. Our program uses a variety of educational techniques to make sure you learn as much as possible.

Our students learn the science of waves, the history of surfing, how to read weather conditions, and all important safety precuations. Our Costa Rica surfing school instructors also believe in implementing yoga and video analysis to supplement surfing. Past students have even earned college credit for their time at our surf school in Tamarindo.

CRSI also hosts regular beach cleanups and other volunteer events. We will never try to sell you a board, a t-shirt or a hamburger, we'd rather just surf!


CRSI's Tamarindo surf school is open year-round so check out our program rates and then head to our registration page to reserve a spot!
