Owner description: Puntas Surf School gives private and group lessons daily. 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! The goal for Melissa and her instructors is to provide an educational, invigorating, and unforgettable experience in the surfing capital of the carribbean; Rincon, Puerto Rico. Our school provides lessons for beginners, intermediate, and those who just want to get to the next level! All ages are welcome and we provide a variety of different surfboards!

My daughters loved their surf lesson.They are ages 21 and 17 and are beginners at surfing. The younger one proclaimed this lesson as her favorite activity in Puerto Rico, beating out many other fun things that we did. We definitely recommend Puntas Surf School!

The best part of our family getaway to Rincon by far was taking surfing lessons from Puntas Surf School. Start to finish the experience was perfect. Melissa made lining up the lessons and making sure we were happy easy, and there seemed to be real emphasis on quality of instruction, safety, and years of teaching experience. Having taken lessons before,... More

Melissa responded me very quickly, and making a lesson appointment was very easy. Nolan was my teacher and he is super patinet and encouraging. He knows everything Rincon, and can show you where to go based on your level. I will suggest Punta's for any level surfers who visit Rincon. They will make sure you have the best time surfing...

I had a great time on the water with Nolan. I took 5 lessons in total and each day we worked on different aspects of surfing. I caught some waves every day because of Nolan's positivity and encouragement. Would definitely recommend!

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.

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
