What Guests Have To Say


Myself and my husband travelled from Canada with surfing on our list of things to do. Travis was an amazing teacher with so much knowledge of the ocean. We were taught so many things and by the end of our trip were able to rent boards and successfully catch some waves on our own. He was so easy to work with and an all around great guy! We will be back in 2024 with our daughter to take the five day clinic for sure!!



Amazing experience with Bodhi! We can't recommend them enough. The instructors are so kind and knowledgeable...and we always feel taken care of when we are with them. This is our 4th time (maybe more? I am losing track now) with Bodhi. Each time we go to Costa Rica we prioritize scheduling family surf lessons. Spencer, Travis, and Adrianne (along with all of the other instructors) always make our experiences so enjoyable. After learning with Bodhi, my husband (in his 40's) feels confident enough to go out on his own and catch the green waves.

The teaching methodology they use walks you through reading the conditions, assessing any hazards and, hopefully, starting you on the road to being a surfer, not just a tourist on a surfboard. Spencer was totally awesome! He could watch us as we tried, see where we were perhaps struggling, and had a way of offering advice that truly helped. I was stoked to actually stand up and “surf”, but was even more excited about what I learned about the ocean and how to play in it safely!

Sooo great! There is much care and attention to self empowerment, surf and environmental education and the connection between them, and an authentic spirit that genuinely wants you to learn something new about yourself while having an amazing time and catching rides.
