Both my kids (5yrs & 7yrs) took lessons with Jimmy from Surf 787. He was an excellent instructor and they both had a great experience. Jimmy was very patient, enthusiastic and creative. He made the experience both fun and educational. He taught them the basics of surfing as well as how to navigate the ocean and the waves. I felt... More

What is essential for a surf learner to get from his instructor is to feel confident, safe and free. Which is definitely the case with Roger and team customized advises and tips. On top of that optimum board and spots are selected according to level and real time conditions (wind, swell). So progress are fast and fun is the keyword.

For the past 2 years my teenage sons surfed with Roger and his crew. I was completely comfortable and grateful that Roger knew just where the right amount of surf was on any given day since the waves are always changing. I felt so much more secure as a mom knowing they were under his guidance and supervision. There is... More

I honestly didn't know what to expect from the surfing instructors or my three urban kids from Brooklyn when I booked 3 surfing lessons with Surf 787. The first day was challenging because the kids had to get used to the board, the water and the challenge of standing on that board IN the water! But the instructors, Jimmy and... More

My son and I had a great time learning to surf with Roger and Lance. They went out of their way to find locations and times where the waves matched our ability. Lance taught us all the basics plus a number of safety tips for handling rough surf and crowded conditions. We look forward to surfing with them again next... More

I stayed at 787 Guest House Villa while in Rincon. I sent my board to repair so Roger offered to rent a board to me. When I saw the collections of surfboards he has, I was so happy. He has all kinds of quality boards, longboards or shortboards. One day I had a 6' fun board on a chest high... More

I called to schedule a surf guide/ instruction session. Roger got right back to me and dialed me in to a great coach. I have surfed Rincon before but the locals know the best spots. The surf coach Jimmy was excellent. I am an intermediate surfer looking to increase my skill level and catch some great waves. I surfed 4... More

I was in Rincon in November and rented a board from Roger. He was great -- every morning I could ask him via text message where to go surf on that day, so I got to benefit from his great local knowledge. In addition, my wife took a surfing lesson from Roger and he was great for that as well.... More

My boyfriend and I took lessons from Jimmy and were really happy with the experience. I took 2 lessons while I was in Rincon, and the conditions were just right for learning. With Jimmy's instruction, I got up on the board and rode waves Day 1. Roger was very responsive to scheduling and any questions I had. My last ride... More
