The Best Surf School in Ecuador

If you’re looking for uncrowded waves, friendly locals and an abundance of lefts and rights for beginners all the way up to elite surfers – Olón is the surf spot for you!

Our surf school is the best in Ecuador for beginner and intermediate surfers. Our beach is fully sand bottom, making it super safe compared to locations breaking over reef or rocks.

Surf Lessons

We run private and group surf classes Monday – Friday all year round. Weekend lessons are available upon request. We meet at the surf school at the time of the lesson, grab boards and head to the beach together. The exact times of surf lessons depend upon tide and wind conditions, so they vary from week to week. 

To keep our group surf classes high value, we limit the number of students to 4 per surf instructor.

We provide your surfboard (waxed and with a leash) and rashguard during your lesson.
