Why surf with MONO LOCO SURF SCHOOL in Panama

  • Mono Loco’s surf coaches Juan David, Hannes, Georgina and Dennis are international B.S.A. and I.S.A. qualified surf instructors and certified lifeguards. They will make you feel 200% safe in all conditions and encourage you step by step to become a better surfer.
  • For all beginners we will start with a theory class at the Mono Loco Surf School HQ in Bocas town. You’ll learn all basics about surfing, the break, surf etiquette and safety so you don’t have to worry about anything but catching waves when you’re in the water. After your theory class we walk 1 minute to the dock to catch the boat (included in the price) to the surf spot.
  • Depending on your level and the ocean conditions, classes will be given at Black Rock or Old man’s. Both are safe and easy surfable spots with long waves. For intermediate surfers there are more spots to choose from. According to your surf experience Mono Loco Surf School picks the right spot for you. All classes are given in small groups to give you as much personal attention and advice as needed.
  • Mono Loco Surf School provides you with their own rashguards (surf t-shirts) to protect your skin from the tropical sun and to point out other surfers you’re still in your learning process.
  • Classes can be given in fluent Spanish, English, French, Dutch or German.
  • Mono Loco Surf School provides the highest quality boards. NSP surfboards deliver fun and stoke from your first wave to your last. They are extremely versatile, easy to use and accommodate beginner and experienced surfers.
