Surf School

Private surf classes run approximately 1.5 hours.  For beginners, we start with some physical exercises on land and explain the basics of surfing.  After that, we head to the water where your instructor will coach you one-on-one and help you practice the fundamentals until you are ready to catch waves on your own.


La Negra Surf School is directed by Costa Rican certified surf instructor Juan Carlos Flores Rugama.  Juan Carlos is as passionate about teaching surfing as he is about surfing.  He has taught literally hundreds of people to surf using proven teaching methods adapted to the personalities and needs of each of his students.

Whether you have never been on a surfboard before or you just want to take your surfing to the next level, La Negra Surf School will give you the instruction to make your surfing dreams come true.  


Surfing is our passion, sport, spiritual practice, life style and discipline.  Sliding on a wave with a surfboard is joyous connection between the human spirit and the natural energy of the ocean.   We hope that all our guests will celebrate the wonder of surfing during their stay at La Negra.
