Bodhi Surf School Rules the Waves!
Steve, Susan and I all send you Buenas Olas from California!
We had the greatest time ever and are still raving about it.
Getting up on the same wave was so cool- you guys were the best teachers- so inspiring! Sunset surfing in Bahia Balena with rainbows was a peak experience. We loved the bungalow so much. Awakening we would lazily move to the deck sipping spiced cucumber ginger water or cayenne lemonade to get energized for yoga with Pilar. Our yoga classes were restorative and beautifully sequenced to make it a good experience for all of us, even though we were at very different levels. Starting the day with gratitude, we couldn't go wrong. Wandering the beach, snorkeling, SUPing, dancing, eating great meals, talking with Pilar and Travis about local community issues, the poetry of Khalil Gibran and surfing with our teacher Gibran whose longing for good waves was poetry in itself. Thank-you Bodhi Surf School !
We had a wonderful time staying with Travis and Pilar. Great surfing lessons (we both got up!) and yoga session during our stay. We will be back :)
Best Surfing Instructor
Great surfing instructor and great person
Highly recomend that if you go to Ubita o Bahia Ballena and want to have a great experience try a surging lesson with Travis
Great instructor snd great person!
Bodhi surf school taught me how to surf quickly, easily and efficiently. They are so amazing and passionate and I believe that if you ever go to Bahia Ballena they are the perfect people to show you around!
I recommend Bodhi Surf to anyone planning to visit the South/Central Pacific in Costa Rica. Surf, yoga, zip line, sea kayak, rafting... this is the place to do it all. Tavis and Pilar are great hosts and wonderful people.
Bodhi Bungalow Bliss
I had the opportunity to spend the week in Bahia Ballena with Bodhi Surf School and at Bodhi Bungalows. My husband and I are always delighted and amazed with the crew at Bodhi Surf School and Yoga. We love Travis, Pilar, Gibran and Adrianne and feel like they have become family. Thank you all for your expertise, patience and personal touch. On this trip, I had to travel alone to Bahia Ballena but had the pleasure of staying in the brand new Bodhi Bungalow. It is in the sweetest out of the way "neighborhood" location with wildlife galore, peace and tranquility. The bungalow has absolutely everything necessary for a long self sufficient stay... and the mattresses are to die for! I slept, walked, worked (yes it has wifi), cooked local fare and just had a marvelous and restful time. The same Bodhi crew was there checking on me and available for any need I might have. I didn't get to practice yoga on this trip but Bodhi has also built a beautiful two story yoga platform within steps of the front door. I will be returning again and again...the next time with my husband!
Amazing afternoon with a friend learning how to surf and... we did it!
What an amazing place to be with excellent tips to learn the basics of surf! The water is hot and the sea marvelous. Waves are goods and it's a 360 degres nature experience. Muchas gracias Gibran! Can't wait to go back!
This is what's SUP in Uvita!!!
Going stand up paddle boarding with the folks at Bodhi Surf guarantees you a fabulous day. To be out on the open water gives you such an amazing view of one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. I was in awe all day. Looking into the clear water and seeing different fish, coral, jellyfish and more was so neat to experience. The paddle boarding itself was excellent exercise that seemed effortless to achieve. You are just having too much fun to think you're getting a workout. The instructors are super nice, friendly and real. They were so fun to hang out with in the calm waters of the Whale's tail. You can tell they love what they do and want others to get to experience it for themselves. We had a blast floating around, trying out yoga poses and falling/jumping off the boards all afternoon. I would definitely do this again and again if I could. I'll never forget our day out on the water!!!
Great fun and really learned how to surf
Finally my wife and I decided to learn how to surf. We had no experience at all. At Bodhi Surf they took all time to learn us the basic principles and guided us in our first steps/waves. After the first lesson we both knew how to start, peddle, get up, fall down (a lot), correct en even surf! This was beyond our expectations.
Travis instructed us with a lot of patience, knowledge and fun. Thanks for all your support and we will hit the waves the next few weeks with a lot of confidence.
After a near 40 year hiatus from surfing I hit the waves again - with Gibran and Adrianne. It was a tremendously fun 2 days. Both Gibran and Adrianne are great instructors and they tailor their presentations to the group.
It was so much fun to get back in the waves and with Gibran\'s encouragement I felt like and old (non)pro. Stand-up paddle boarding and snorkeling were great fun too. Our first experience stand-up paddling was outstanding.
I would highly highly recommend BodhiSurf and Gibran & Adrianne for some great times and LOTS of fun
