In front of our resort is what we call "Beginner Beach” and is ideal for beginners all the way up to advanced surfers. It is a sandy bottomed beach break protected by an outside reef and an island keeping the swell a little toned down from Morrillo proper.
Morrillo proper, a short walk down the beach, is an intermediate to advanced surf spot depending on the swell. It can get too big there and completely close out as it is a beach break, but if that is the case, beginner beach is usually still within a comfortable size. We rent boards and the majority are soft tops but we do have a few short and mid-range boards for rent. See below and contact us with more questions.

Learning to surf with Ryan
The boards we have available are all brand new and in perfect condition. We have a variety to offer surfers of all abilities; easy learning boards to high performance short boards:
Gnaraloo 7’4”, 8’4”, 9’2”
The Gnaraloo Fatty are especially designed for surf schools and first timers as they are extra thick, wide, stable and they have a handle in the middle so that the kids can carry them too.
The Fatty has a special rocker profile (the curve of the board) that was designed to help new surfers learn to surf faster and have more fun sooner. The boards paddle easily and quickly due to their higher buoyancy and the bottom contours making it easy to catch waves. The wide tail and nose area make the boards very stable under unsure feet inspiring confidence and success.
Gnaraloo is a safe and fun way to get started surfing and learn quickly and safely.
All sizes come with a built in carry handle.
Flounder Pounder: 5’6”, 6’6”
The Gnaraloo Softshell Flounder Pounder combines shortboard performance into one of the most user-friendly softboard designs on the market.
SKIN: Thick Polyethylene deck and a soft slick skin on the bottom is super durable, yet soft enough to keep beginners safe.
CORE: Expanded polystyrene core with TRIPLE internal stringer system produces a rigid flex pattern that can be pushed hard through turns. Other softboards can over flex, but the integrity of the rocker is maintained in the Flounder Pounder bringing the feel closer to a traditional fiberglass surfboard.
CONSTRUCTION: Safe for all skill levels, the vacuum construction process eliminates hard or sharp surfaces, and prevents peeling or bubbling.
FEATURES: Leash plug with HD internal reinforcements plus FCS compatible fin boxes and flexible thruster fin set makes it fast and easy to hit the water, and upgrade the performance of the board with stiffer fins.
Hard boards $35/day:
The Modern Blackfish surfboard combines usability and performance in a contemporary fish shape, and our X1 construction offers the strength, flex and performance advantages of epoxy at a very affordable price.
OUTLINE: Contemporary fish shape with the wide point shifted forward to assist with paddle efficiency. The tail narrows in the last 24 inches adding control and bite in steeper sections.
CONTOURS: The subtle single-to-double concave bottom feels very reliable and offers quick response in a variety of conditions.
ROCKER: The smooth, well-balanced rocker is designed to get you into waves early, accelerate fast off the bottom, and then maintain speed as you transition from one turn to the next.
FOIL: The Blackfish has plenty of volume under the chest and through the mid zone creating stability and making it very easy to paddle and ride. The domed deck leads out to performance rails that heighten sensitivity when turning.
The Modern Blackfish is very reliable and versatile enough to use everyday or on your next surfing adventure.
Hypto Krypto 6’0”
Currently one of the most in demand and best selling surfboards globally, The Hypto Krypto is a balance of tradition and modern performance. Suited to the elite level surfer to the everyday surfer, it is often referred to as the ‘one board quiver’ for its versatility across all types of surf conditions – from small 1-3 ft beach breaks, to barrels of up to 8ft.
It has a high amount of volume under the chest, which enables it to paddle like a dream. It’s designed for surfing on the open face, to draw fast flowing lines.
The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, yet it draws back to a tight rounded pintail. The wider straighter outline up front creates plenty of speed, yet the round pintail allows tight turns in the pocket.
The foil has plenty of volume around the chest and center area of the board, yet it refines out to a thinner, pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave.
The rocker is flat throughout, although holds a little extra lift in the entry, which helps when taking off late or turning in the steeper sections of the wave. The design of the rocker is focused around speed, to enable surfers to make sections that they don’t normally expect to make.
The concave runs from a rolled vee in the entry to a slight single, blending into a vee double out the tail which gives the board great speed and control from rail to rail.
7 Surfboards Hook 6'4"
The Hook merges some old and new surfboard design characteristics to offer a fast, yet highly functioning hybrid twin fin surfboard that will unlock a whole new approach to your surfing. This twin offers the confidence to turn without having to compromise power.
OUTLINE: We’ve put a modern twist on the traditional fish outline. It’s still relatively full upfront, but it narrows considerably through the tail. This promotes an easier rail-to-rail transition and allows the rail to engage and bite into the wave face when turning with more force.
ROCKER: Considered medium-to-low, which has its advantages when generating speed and acceleration in softer conditions, however, there’s enough curve to surf closer towards the pocket and still confidently draw a longer line on more open face waves.
CONTOURS: Featuring the signature 7S step-deck to ensure maximum buoyancy under the chest while maintaining a lower rail for sensitivity. Forward vee displaces water efficiently from the wider nose and helps eliminate any sticking feeling when driving down-the-line. Vee transitions into a single/double concave combo through the back offering a nice feeling of sensitivity and liveliness when making more critical turns.
PERFORMANCE: Like with most twin models, the first thing you’ll notice is the speed and the freedom in which it turns and pivots. But, what separates the Hook is that it offers an underlying feeling of security and poise when loading up the fins, i.e. It won’t feel like it’s going to skip out. This is not just a small wave board, it can be surfed confidently in overhead waves. It’s hard to go back to three fins once you ride the Hook!
7 Surfboards Jet Stream 6'9"
Derived from the more refined Slipstream of the past, the new 7S Jetstream is a true hybrid surfboard, both from a design perspective and by definition of its performance. Now with more volume under the chest for better paddling and overall usability, this ‘Performance All-Rounder’ will adapt to a range of conditions from mushy beach breaks to classic point waves.
OUTLINE: There’s more surface area up front compared to a regular shortboard, which is great for generating speed and acceleration when driving off your front foot. The back half resembles a traditional shortboard with a refined outline and a forgiving round tail for smooth, yet controlled rail transitions.
CONTOURS: Tried and tested around the global, the subtle single-to-double concave with vee out through the tail delivers a balance of speed and flow over flatter sections, and responsiveness in hollow waves.
ROCKER: Low-to-moderate entry rocker is designed to offer immediate acceleration from the take off, but still allow the board to fit into more critical parts of the wave. The relaxed tail rocker helps maintain down the line speed, and creates acceleration through the entire turning arc.
FOIL: Foiled just enough through the nose and tail so the board delivers a nice feeling of sensitivity. The performance rail profile completes the design package by adding a highly responsive feel when the board is carving on rail.
PERFORMANCE: Regarded as the most user-friendly hybrid model on the market, the 7S Jetstream is essentially design to make performance surfing a little easier, and create a better approach to the way you ride waves.
