Surf Lessons in Panama January 2011

« on: October 02 2010 11:10:00 »

I am coming to Panama for two weeks in mid-January with my gf and a three friends.  Most of us are beginners and two haven't surfed before.  We are wanting to surf for 3-5 days, and get lessons so we can improve.  Where is a good spot with consistent swells that we can learn?  Decent prices wouldn't hurt either.  Hostels? Cheap lessons? etc.

You need to call Flor at Panama Surf School or visit her website  She is located in El Palmar which is in the dry arc of Panama so the weather is awesome.  Plus she is EXTREMELY knowledgable about all the best surf spots in Panama & will take you there.
On her website she does offer places to stay as well.
