The instructors are very enthusiastic and friendly. We had three instructors for a group of four, so we always had individual attention. They had chairs and shade, water, fruit, paddle boards and boogie boards. Dante was there to pick us up and drop us off. I highly recommend this group!

Dante and his team are great to work with! From the booking process to the actual surfing everything is extremely smooth and professional. They are great and patient teachers, the three hours flew by! Thank You.

Our tour started off with Dante and our instructor picking us up at our hotel (complimentary). Off we went to our one of a kind surfing experience. We were taken to a breathtaking beach away from the crowds, where we were only joined by a handful of locals. Once there, we began our lesson and quickly hit the waves. Our... More

Booked a surfing tour 10 minutes before they came to pick me up and it was no problem. They drove us to a wonderful beach with barely any other people there, which is great when you're surfing for the first time. The instructor was amazing - fun and relaxed person, and a great teacher! Dante was also great, and he... More

My husband and I booked the lessons through the hotel we stayed at on Feb. 13th. Dante came and picked us up and took us to the beach. The initial instruction took place on the beach. The instructors were excellent. We had Alejandro and William. After three times in the water on the board we got up! Not bad for... More

We were here for a family trip and my brother and I always wanted to try surfing. We thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so. Although we were a bit nervous the morning of, the staff at Dantes Water Activities very quickly had us laughing and feel excited again. I felt safe the entire time (in what... More

This place was buenísimo! We surfed with Tony, Alejandro and Steven as first timers and they were excellent. Patient and kind and although andábamos medio mamando they never were frustrated and kept smiling. We were able to stand up many times and they never let us get demolished in the waves. 10/10 would recommend to fam, compas, principiantes, and anyone... More

As a first timer attempting to surf I couldn't have asked for a more patient and encouraging instructor than Steven! I had an amazing day and got one on one attention. I was successful in my attempts due to his coaching. I will absolutely take more lessons from this company when I come back to Costa Rica!

Signed up for surfing lessons with two of my friends - all of us were complete newbies at surfing. We ended up getting what amounted to individual private lessons since each of us had our own instructor who stayed with us in the water the whole time. Alejandro, Steven, and Tony were absolutely amazing! Very encouraging, didn't laugh at our... More
