This was a really fun experience and I learned that surfing is way more fun than you'd expect. The instructors were very kind and they helped show me the right way. It was so much fun and I would totally do it again.

Dante and his crew are definitely the ones to go with when talking about surfing lessons! They are great! They really make sure you understand and stay with you the entire time!! It was a wonderful experience even for someone who was not so great at surfing - they were very patient, kind and funny! Use them for surfing!!!! :)

Dante's Watersports provided an excellent experience for the whole family. Our 12 year old was a first time surfer- the instructor promised she would be up on a board in five minutes - and he delivered! When it was time for a break, the staff had water and fresh pineapple for surfers and visitors. They even helped us locate fresh... More

Dante himself picked us up and took us to the beach. Alejandro and Jorge were phenomenal instructors. Both my husband and I as well as our teenage children were all able to successfully surf after a minimal amount of time with these talented men. They allowed us to camp out under a 10'x10 tent with some lounge chairs all we... More

The day started when my family and I were picked up at our resort. When we arrrived the instructors were there waiting to get started. After showing us on land what we should be doing we went onto the water. After trying a few times I was up and surfing. Not bad for someone that falls at any given time... More

My wife and I took private lessons on our first morning of our trip. Dante picked us up on time and introduced us to our instructors, led by Alejandro. After a few minutes of instructions on the beach, we were quickly in the water surfing. We had a blast. There were always multiple instructors in the water with us, giving... More

We were pick up from the Marina in Quepos and Dante himself picked us up. He is an amazing guy taking our pictures while we were surfing. The guys who was teaching us the surfing lessons "Wilson" is good. I was already standing up on my first try on surfing.
