As someone who had never surfed before, I was excited to get in the water, but a bit skeptical of my abilities. Alvaro and Manuel are wonderful instructors, who really gave me specific feedback and helped me improve each time I rode a wave. It was incredibly fun - we started on small waves and all 10 of us were standing with in an hour of instruction. When we were back to the beach, Alvaro and Manuel kept us nourished with fresh pineapple and watermelon.
If you wonder why there are so many excellent reviews on this site, i think it's because in addition to being excellent, professional surf instructors, both Alvaro and Manuel are such salt of the earth, good people. They grew up in Montezuma and started this school on their own - and anyone who meets them, surfs with them wants them to wildly succeed. I know they will and can't wait to get down again and pick up some more surfing skills.
