Our family tried surfing for the first time and we all were able to catch the waves. The instructors were patient, encouraging and experienced. Our teenagers spent 2 hours and barely missed a wave - thanks to the help of the instructors! A great time had by all - many laughs! Thank you Dante's highly recommended

My husband and the boys tried surfing lessons and the wonderful young men who work as instructors had all three boys (10, 13, 16) up on their boards and surfing in no time. Even I got in on the action and tried my hand at paddle... More

Dante and Alejandro were the best! Expert instruction, good equipment, loads of fun!!!! I got up the surfboard the first try. After doing that to exhaustion, they provided a SUP and boogy board. Water and fresh fruit were provided, too. I highly recommend this outfit!

My girlfriend and I called the listed phone number and were able to get a lesson set up with ease. Within 30 minutes Dante drove to our AirBnB and took us to his spot on the beach. It is a small family operation with 6-8 employees. We took surf lessons for $65 which also included access to other water sports... More
