Surf Lessons

Playa Grande is very tide dependent and our surf lesson schedule is dictated by the tides – each day is different. Please reach out to us for the best time for learning and we will give you a suggested schedule for each day.

Group Lessons 
• 1 person in a group lesson with other participants. 
• Minimum 2 people to run class and max 4 people with one instructor. 
• Best for complete beginner surfers on a budget.  
Not for children under 12 years old.  

Private lessons  
• 1- 4 people with one instructor. 
• Personalized instruction with one instructor just for your group.  
• 1 instructor can teach up to 4 students. Flexible attendance…same price for 1 up to 4, in case people drop out or want to join on a whim.  
• Best for people who appreciate a custom experience, tailored to your level of surfing.  
• For families with children under 12 years old, who are not permitted to participate in a regular group lesson for safety reasons.

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.
