Great school. Well run, on time, instructor Oli was knowledgeable, a great communicator, patient and I saw a real improvement in my surfing every day thanks to his smart observations. Top drawer place.

I came to Rincon with my sister and my mother for a mini bachelorette for my sister. We had only done one lesson before in Barbados so were a little nervous about our lesson. The guys that own the surf school are super friendly and very welcoming. Ben was our instructor for the day he was very kind and very... More

My husband and I signed up for two days of surfing lessons after my brother spoke so highly about Rincon Surf School. We are beginners so I was a bit hesitant but we decided to give it a go. We had an amazing time and surprisingly did quite well for our first time (thanks to our awesome instructor, Ross)! I... More

So me and my newlywed wife were in Puerto Rico for our honeymoon and decided to stop in Rincon for some surf lessons. Without having a plan I called and spoke to Travis, who not only got us set up with the session, but helped us find a place to stay, and it was awesome. But that's another review. Our... More

We had a blast! They were as cool and unpretentious as any rookie/wanna-be surfers could ever ask for. And Ollie had my 8 year old daughter up and riding her first wave on her first attempt in the most perfect spot imaginable. Can't ask for better than that.

Ross was a fantastic instructor - he took us to a great beach with a lot of waves. He helped me catch a ton of waves (I'm a beginner) and gave my more experienced surfer husband some great tips. He even had all the local scoop, including where to get the best bloodys in rincon. I would definitely recommend.

My husband and I had never surfed before and had a great experience with Rincon Surf School! Travis and Whit were fantastic teachers and gave good coaching/feedback after every wave so we could see that we were improving throughout the time we spent with them. They went beyond by giving us recommendations for places to see on the island and... More

Ollie & Ben were awesome guides for me and 3 mates. Conditions changed every day but they always took us to a great, uncrowded break

I hired a private instructor from Rincon Surf School to take me out when I was in Rincon on holiday. They had an initial "review" where they went over some basics and asked me about my expectations and limitations etc. I went over my limitations of what I was capable of doing due to some mobility issues and they were...

First time in Rincon, I'm an experienced surfer, so was just looking for a board. Found the other reviews here. Pulled up to the shop - easy to get to from Sandy Beach - one of the guys greeted me with a big hello and talked swell until Travis, the owner came around. GREAT guy, had tons of boards to... More
