Taking surfing lessons with Dante's water sport at Manuel Antonio was perfect for our 4 kids 12, 15, 18 and 20 and us. They were very attentive, friendly and fun. They were also very flexible with our schedule and our needs and very safe. A huge plate of fresh fruit and water bottles at a break was great. Thank you... More

Took the nephews to learn to surf and they were up and riding almost immediately. Instructors are knowledgeable and friendly which was great. They started out teaching the basics on the beach and then moved to the water. The beauty of the beach and area plus learning to surf made the whole experience awesome. They had a blast!

When my wife and I went surfing Dante took... More

Dante and his team of instructors helped our 3 girls (ages 8-10) all get up on surf boards. Dante was extremely friendly and his instructors were great with the girls. What a fun afternoon riding the waves. Highly recommend Dante for your surf lessons!
