Manuel Antonio Surf School was started by Luis Gattgens in 2004. Luis opened this school with a dream to share his passion for surfing. He believes that there is a right way to teach people how to surf and has built his business off of this principal. We teach surf theory and mechanics as well as an understanding of the ocean to all of our students. We focus on safety first. Our instructors are qualified locals who are equally passionate about surfing and are trained in water safety and first aid.
We offer a variety of lesson and tour options that can appeal to anyone from the beginner to the advanced surfer. We have a lot of experience with families and children, for whom we provide a practiced and patient lesson. At the same time we love perfecting the skills of intermediate and advanced surfers. We can customize any lessons or tour to fit your needs and ensure a personalized experience. And, with us, you will experience the local culture while you learn how to surf.
Since 2004 we have helped thousands of students fulfill their dreams to surf. We promise to get every student up on a wave by the end of every lesson. We are dedicated to providing unforgettable and safe surf lessons to all of our students. We want our students to remember their experience with us forever.
We live for this!
