Dante himself came to our hotel in Quepos to pick us up and drop us off. The class was awesome, the instruction was professional and fun. I would highly recommend this school, there's a reason its reviews are so good.

Surfing during spring break was the highlife of my teenage girls trip. They were picked up on schedule and had the best best time surfing for the day. Great waves and an extremely awesome experience!

Boyfriend and I tried surfing for the first time while on our trip to Costa Rica. Dante was very nice, friendly and timely when picking us up. The instructors were awesome! Super fun and made us feel very safe and comfortable. We would definitely recommend and would book them again if ever back in Costa Rica.

Dante's charming instructors taught our family of four beginners to surf in no time. Dante himself picked us up at our house and they provided snacks, surf shirts and sunscreen. Highly recommended!

Also, did I mention, our... More

Dante, Alejandro, his wife and the surf instructors were terrific. So much so, that we came back for a second morning of surfing. Pick up is on time, lessons safe and engaging, super friendly with providing me a beach chair in the shade, zinc cream for those who needed it, coconut water and fruit snacks. My 12 year old could...
