Costa Rica Surfing Lessons on Manuel Antonio Beach

Check out this YouTube video by Sam Kolder which features our Waterfall and Surf tour!

The best option at Manuel Antonio Beach for anyone seeking a short but intense lesson and introduction into the world of surfing. After picking you up at your hotel, we bring you down to the beach to begin practicing some safety recommendations before hitting the waves for your surfing lesson. Our special teaching techniques will have you up in no time, and our patient and experienced instructors give you lots of tips along the way to help you find that perfect and balanced form on the board. Take a break to relax in our chairs under the shade of umbrellas, and refuel with fresh, juicy tropical fruit before you continue conquering the waves. When you’ve captured enough moments standing up and surfing from all kinds of angles, and your arms cannot take more paddling, we bring you back to your hotel. This is a fantastic experience that everyone should try, for sure!

From a Satisfied Adventurer

We wanted to learn how to surf and have some fun while in Manuel Antonio. Dante’s was recommended by the hotel and scored high on TripAdvisor so it was an easy choice. They didn’t let us down and gave us a fantastic morning with pretty big waves and super clear instructions. The crew helped us all the way out there in the waves and didn’t settle until the teenagers surfed standing up. As for the 6-year old he was having fun bodysurfing on a boogie board. Next time we’re around we’ll make sure to stop by and develop those skills further. Pura vida
