If you want to learn how to surf, definitely use this company! They picked my boyfriend and I up from Parador Resorts then drove us to the beach to meet our instructor, Dave, who, by the way, is AWESOME! I didn't think I'd actually be able to stand up on my board at all but was willing to try, and... More

Avoid all the other surf schools. Dante is the nicest guy around, super accommodating and professional. Dave was our instructor and you couldn't have asked for better. My girlfriend and I spent two days with Dante's crew first getting lessons then renting boards and chairs. Honest, friendly and fair. Dante - you are the man! PURA VIDA!

We had an amazing experience. Each employee was kind and new English! They let us go at are own pace and gave each of us individual attention. I recommend this to beginners, experienced riders, and even for people who have never been on a surf board.

I am so glad my family decided to to go surfing with Dante's Water Sports. We were all beginners and were able to learn how to surf within the first few tries. I highly recommend surfing with Dante and his crew if you ever go to Costa Rica.

We took our company (23 people or so) for surfing lessons and had a blast. At first, the size of the waves were fairly intimidating. But they started us out on the smaller waves and if we wanted, had us riding the biggies in no time. I think every person in our group got up and surfing in fairly short... More

I went with a large group (around 20) of coworkers to take surf lessons on the last morning of our trip to CR. We were split into two groups. A driver came and picked us up from the resort and drove us the 20 minutes to the beach. Once we were there we had about 15 minutes of dry land... More

So I turned out to be hopeless at surfing, but the instructors were great. They gave me plenty of individual attention and encouragement. The location is spectacular, with warm water and a smooth sandy beach. Give it a try!

My family and I spent our last day of our 10 day trip to CR with Dante and his crew. Our twin boys are 8 1/2 and our older son just turned 11. The surf instructors were great! They took time to focus on safety during the instruction and patiently answered all the boys questions. They were so patient and... More

Jesse looked after us very well and we had so much fun! It was our first time to surf but our daughter (10 year old) can now surf really well. Thanks Jesse!
