Angelo Dinarte (Surf Instructor)

Angelou Dinarte

Angelo grew up surfing and fishing , he is a gregarious guy with miles of patience. He will always get you up surfing with a smile and makes you laugh as you do it !!

When he is not teaching, he’s surfing. When he’s not surfing, he’s studying, finishing up his education at night school. Angelo’s favorite spot to surf is Witches Rock, world famous for its barrels and where we often take our crew to surf and camp after a job well done.
