Tamarindo Surf School is located steps away from the beautiful Playa Tamarindo.
Founded in 1990, T.S.S was the first surf school of its kind in Tamarindo.
For years we have been providing our clients with unforgettable memories of their first wave ever surfed.
At TSS we take pride in knowing our guests will have the best time of their lives!

This is not just a surf lesson, it is the first step in your surfing career. After years of experience teaching surfing we guarantee you will stand up and ride your first wave in just one lesson! If not, your next lesson is free. Our lessons begin on the beach with some theory and technique talk. You will then practice the correct movements and positioning on the board and head straight into the water for an experience of a lifetime!
