Academy Overview

Our SUPSurf Academy offers small-size courses with attention to service and running our operation on a personalized level. All guests are evaluated at the start and end of each course. Video analysis is done breaking down every move made, ocean knowledge while being a lifelong course is discussed, the surfing lifestyle is shared, and a lot of coffee is shared for those looking to do dawn patrol!

Costa Rica is a mecca for surfing, and the waves are sized perfectly for those looking to learn. Join us as our only goal is to keep you smiling and helping us spread a new pandemic of the love for SUP Surfing and the lifestyle it brings.

Sup Surfing
Beginner Friendly

Do you have a passion for being near the ocean, and you feel that just sitting in the sand doesn’t do it anymore? The fast-growing sport of SUP Surfing has made visiting the beach an entirely new experience.

With the learning curve easier than traditional pop-up surfing, the SUP Surf wave changing people’s lives is now easier than ever to join.

Our passion for water has taught us that there is so much more to river rafting or 1-hour surf classes. There are entirely new lifestyles and possible adventures with just a little effort.

After one week, we have seen people become total SUPSurf addicts from never getting on a board to in only three days doing bottom turns and becoming a lifelong surfer.

This is such an amazing trip! Fantastic rafting, absolutely stunning views, and great food! The guides are incredibly competent and made the trip fun, which is all you can ask for. The zip lining and Tarzan swing were a fun way to break up the rafting, and getting out to explore waterfalls was a nice way to end the day. Thank you Tom, Arturo and Luis for an unforgettable experience!

Incredible, authentic Costa Rican vacation experience. We stayed in the brand new lodge and loved, loved the rooms and outdoor lounge overlooking the river.

Simply amazing accommodations in the heart of the Costa Rican Rainforest. I took a group of students and parents with me, and they all said that POC was their favorite spot! It is great for ziplining, rafting, and just relaxing and being with nature. The food cooked for us was incredible! My favorite part is the community space with hammocks and lounge chairs to enjoy time with others. This place really is a little piece of paradise!

I have been here three separate times, and absolutely love this beautiful, scenic lodge. Twice I traveled as a chaperone with a group of students and they adored the spacious, clean cabins, each with a breathtaking view of the rainforest. They spent hours playing cards and other games in the common area, where you can lounge in deck chairs and hammocks. The canopy tour, Tarzan swing, and hike to a waterfall/swimming area were definite highlights of the trip. I can't wait to return.

If you are looking for a vacation to get away from it all and be in the beauty of Costa Rica, while having amazing service, this is the trip for you! The guides were amazing, knowledgable, and great cooks. I would highly recommend. I went with friends for a destination wedding and we had a blast! The trip of a lifetime!
