Why Choose Salty Sols Surf School?

When you book a lesson with Eric at Salty Sols Surf School you can be sure you are in good hands. Eric has a passion for surfing as well as teaching people—and that combination has earned the trust of many clients over the years on the beaches of Costa Rica.

Eric’s passion for surfing and people has allowed him to become a sought-after surf instructor in Tamarindo. His experience and people skills make all of his clients, (children and adults alike), feel comfortable and ready to have fun as they learn the necessary skills to catch their first waves.

Ironically, Eric is from the landlocked state of Missouri—where there is not a wave to be found. After spending years in various surfing communities around the globe he has made a home in Tamarindo, Costa Rica where the surfing just doesn’t get any better.

If you are nervous about your first time surfing, you can feel at ease knowing that Eric has been right where you are and he can help you regardless of your current surfing skill level. Leave your worries behind and get ready to enjoy the excitement of riding the waves!


Satisfied Surfers

"Five stars for Eric! He is the best for lessons in Costa Rica. I've taken lessons from others—but Eric takes the time to really make sure you are really learning so when the lesson is over you are ready to surf on your own."
Paul PurcellHappy Customer
"Eric is so great with kids! He made learning fun and simple for my son and before the lesson was over he was up and having a blast riding the waves!"
Sarah McCallisterProud Mom
