Dante and his team were simply fantastic! Not only were the lessons great- we were up right away- but they could not have been nicer and more helpful. Dante even lent us money for lunch before we had a chance to make it to the ATM. There are other choices for surfing on the public beach, but Dante's is by far the best!

We enjoyed our surfing lesson with Dante's Water Sports. Our family learned to get up and ride the waves quickly and the instructor was very helpful.

Dante pick us up and brought us home from the beach each day we used his services. First day we had 8 kids take surfing lessons from his staff. The staff worked with each kid...ages 10-15 and had them all up on boards riding waves. Kids like it so much that 4 wanted to go back and take lessons a second day. Dante also providing the parents lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach so we could watch the kids...one chair per surfer along with water and fruit. He worked hard to make sure we had a great time and we did. I would recommend using Dante.

If you're looking for surfing lessons in Manuel Antonio, Dante Water Sports offers excellent turnkey services for adults and children. They provide transportation, equipment, chairs / umbrellas at the beach, and fruit and snacks. All inclusive. We were a big group with 8 children, and Dante's staff offered 1:1 lessons for the children. The instructors fun, patient, and great teachers! All the kids were up and surfing, and went back for more lessons.
All in all, great service!

Just back from a trip to Quepos with our extended family; a group of us (6 adults ~30-35 years old) took surf lessons with Dante's. Had amazing instructors (Michael, Chino and Manus). The 6 of us had zero surfing experience but all of us stood and caught multiple waves. No injuries. Only huge smiles and lots of fond memories! Highly professional.
