Surfing with Manuel was the best experience I've had so far. Doesn't matter if it's your first or your 5th time surfing.. If you are near Montezuma or Santa Teresa make sure you book a lesson. You will not regret it!

This is a surf school, but we got much more than surf instruction. Manuel is the kind of person we feel lucky to have met and spent time with. I'm sure there are plenty of good surf instructors, but finding someone who enjoys what he...More

Hi Ken, we don't offer fishing. We are a surf school offering surf lessons and retreats. For fishing you may want to check in with Zuma Tours here in Montezuma. Best regards!
