Melissa Taylor has been giving surf lessons in Puerto Rico since 2002 and created Puntas Surf School in 2007. She is still the only female instructor in Rincon and she has a team of guy and girl instructors so each lesson has all the help and information they can get! Nolan is her head instructor. He is very patient, informative, personable, and always has a smile on his face!

Wife and I got lessons with Nolan. He made it a true and safe lesson. Got a few decent waves to ride on and he definitely knows his stuff. Coming back so Nolan don't go too far!!

Nolan and Mellissa were awesome. We didn't take lessons because we all surf, but they brought boards to the beach and met us a couple of different times. Nolan let us borrow straps to take the boards back to our rental unit when we were going to surf early the next day. Highly recommend them.

We had 4 teens who were first timers and they had great experience!!!! They... More

There's really only one word to describe our experience with Puntas Surf School: Outstanding! Well, OK, we could also go with Great, Wonderful, Fabulous, or Marvelous. The main "goal" of our PR vacation was to get my daughter up on a surfboard, and Nolan had her on her feet and riding the waves within minutes. He even got me out... More

i just had an amazing surf lesson with Puntas Surf School. I was a little nervous and hesitant at first but the instructor put me to ease and build up my confidence : ) After each wave the instructor gave me critical feedback that informed my surfing. Before I knew it I was catching waves and having an amazing time... More

Thank you SO MUCH to the entire Puntas Surf School team of instructors! My hubby, two boys and I took lessons last week. One of the highlights of our trip (heck, of the YEAR!) was seeing each boy paddle out, catch a wave, and ride it to the shore--- and not just once, but multiple times! Seeing our kiddos test... More

My friends and I were lucky to discover Puntas when we were on vacation in Rincon this February. We were a mix of levels - some of us had tried surfing many times before and others of us had never done it and were a little nervous. Melissa and her crew were incredibly kind and patient with us, giving great... More

I recently returned from a trip to Rincon with two girlfriends and we all agreed that our lessons with Puntas Surf school made our vacation! We were there for three short days but the trip couldn't have been better. Melissa is incredibly professional and responsive in helping schedule lessons. Our instructors Ross and Rod were not only very experienced, knowledgeable... More

Like everyone else before me, I had an awesome time. My instructor was the best (hi Ashley!) and the owners (Melissa and Nolan) were friendly and professional. The photographer (Rod) has a great eye (check out all his great shots). This is a fantastic team of people doing wonderful work. I recommend that any brand new surfers let this school... More
