No one had surfed before but everyone did by the end of the hour, most within the first couple of tries! They have... More

I was with a group of 14 people and none of us have been surfing before, but it only took less than 5 minutes to get every one of us up on the board! The beach was gorgeous and the staff was super friendly, fun, and helpful. They are experts riding the waves and teaching others to ride the waves.... More

Learning to surf with Dante's Water Sports was a great experience. The beach was beautiful and the staff was super friendly and helpful. After learning to surf, light refreshments were served. Surfing is no joke, but Dante and his team made it enjoyable for all.

He held the surf board until a good wave came, told us to paddle, and... More

Our study abroad program had an afternoon of surfing with Dante's Water Sports. We all had a great time learning how to surf. The individualized attention and one on one instruction made made a great impact on the lessons. The staff was friendly and encouraging.
