Popoyo Surf Lodge has been hosting hard core surf trips since 1999.  However, the interest in learning to surf and in Nicaragua as a tourist destination have grown substantially in the last decade.    At Popoyo Surf Lodge the tools, knowledge, and quality of waves are in place to offer  surf lessons catering to beginning surfers and families of all ages.  

Our surf lessons packages are hosted by one of our  PSL surf guides/instructors  who will instruct  guests to learn to surf and guide them during surf sessions. There are beginner friendly waves in the area and guests start off at easy surf breaks suitable for learning.  Lessons start on the beach and clients are taught the proper positioning on the surf board, how to paddle, and use correct balance. As guest’s skills improve through out the week, clients progress to more challenging waves if desired.  Understanding the ocean, the waves and currents are also an intricate part of surfing and our instructors spend time with clients to make sure they understand all aspects of learning to surf.  All surf lessons are done in a very small group setting of no more than three to four surfers with an instructor.  We do lessons all day based around the tides and swell conditions and clients general well being.
