Your trip to Costa Rica wouldn’t be complete without the thrill of catching your first wave!

From beginner surf lessons to surf coaching for accomplished surfers, Frijoles Locos Surf Shop in Playa Grande offers a complete range of surf lesson options. People of all ages, from kids to grandparents, enjoy our professional, fun, and safe surf instruction.

Beginners start out with our safety & ocean awareness instruction and pop up practice on the beach before you hit the ocean and catch your first waves.

Intermediates will get a refresher on safety and will appreciate the instructor's local knowledge of the break and help identifying the best waves.

Playa Grande literally translates to “big beach,” with plenty of space for our surf instructors to select a quiet, uncrowded location for your surf lesson.
