Frijoles Locos Playa Grande Costa Rica Surf Shop Trip Advisor Reviews

Best Surf Lessons. Awesome People. Cool Shop. A MUST visit.

I’ve been going to Frijoles Locos for years now. The rental boards are always great, and the store is super helpful in choosing and exchanging them. The service is always fantastic. The surf instructors they have are incredible for surfers at all levels. The instructor Rob is incredible, patient, and funny making the surf lessons 20x better. I highly recommend Frijoles Locos. They are truly incredible.
