The surf instructors were excellent. But when we arrived, the whole operation was disorganized, and there were 6 people enrolled in a private lesson with 2 instructors. There were long gaps in between when we had the opportunity to surf. I thought $150 each was too much for surfing only 5-6 waves. Maybe $85 for a group lesson would be a more fair price, or $150 for a private lesson.
My husband and I did a private surf lesson with Roy for my 40th birthday! We had the best experience ever! I can't wait to try surfing again. Would definitely recommend this for anyone wishing to try surfing. I would really like to let my kids try surfing now.
We had a GREAT experience with Alex and his crew at Costa Azul. My wife and I both were surfing waves by the end of the lesson. We booked a private lesson--not sure how long we were supposed to have with Alex, but we were both exhausted after about 2 hours. I got the feeling we could have been in the water with him all day with no problems! He is a a great instructor and a great guy! If I were to get another lesson, it would be with him, but I don't need one! When I go back to Cabo, I will rent boards from him to support his business!
Alex was an amazing instructor. He was energetic, gave clear instruction, and was very encouraging. I would highly recommend Costa Azul to anyone looking to try out surfing.
