Highly recommend. Rafael has a great setup on the beach with good quality boards, instructors and perfect breaks for first timers and intermediate surfers. My wife and I were picked up at our hotel (Hard Rock-Convention center entrance, not main lobby for pickup for those of you staying at the Hard Rock) and dropped us back off after we took... More

The instruction wasn't bad. plenty of time to surf. Just a little unorganized. The picked us up from the hotel, we surfed, then were taken back, so we got what we wanted. Nothing about it was bad, just not real organized. Also, either pay before hand online, or bring cash....They do not accept cards there.

This was the one activity we had our heart set on for our vacation. I contacted Rafael through email, and was set up for two days later. We paid online through paypal. He picked us up very promptly in his van at 10:30, and took us right to the beach. We were fitted with rash guards, and given a ~15... More

First of all, I just want to say that all-in-all we had a great time. I named the title what I did, so that people with small children would take notice and read it. Our whole family did the Macao Surf Camp, including me, my wife, and our three children (10, 8, 5). My wife and I had a great... More

Owners are personally involved with the business and it shows. Everything about the camp was professional and safe. Kids (9 and 11) were both up on the boards within 5 minutes of being in the water and loved every minute.

We had a group of 10 people, with people in their early 20's to their late 50's. Everyone was surfing within their first few attempts. It was awesome, Rafael and his instructors did an amazing job!

Great people, excellent instructors, great teachers, beautiful beach, etc. Very nice people, very descriptive and made easy to learn how to stand and ride the wave. One on one teaching nice boards excellent service and overall a great experience. Beautiful Beach not crowded good waves and experienced instructors.
