They were very accommodating: called the night before and told Melissa that we had we only had one day that we could take a lesson. We arrived the next morning and found that the waves were not great, and the group then decided to postpone the lesson till the next day, for better surf. But the waves were fine for... More

Had a lesson with Rod. Very nice guy and very knowledgeable. Watched and listened to students and answered any questions. Have a great and thorough intro and was always aware of where we were in the water. Had feedback constantly about all aspects of surfing and being in the water. Highly recommended Puntas surf School and Rod and Nolan as... More

Booking lessons was a breeze, nice and easy, hassle free! I thought I would sign my twelve year old daughter up for a one day private or semi private lesson. She was hooked after that first day! I booked lessons the following two days for her with the same instructor, Tina. I am very impressed with Tina's attention to safety,... More

Our Rincon trip included 2 days of lessons with Rod. I really appreciated the personal feedback on each wave and ride, as well as the specific info about the reef and break. He watched every part of our approach and ride on the waves, and made great recommendations to improve our surfing. This attention to detail made the process much... More

Melissa and her team are great to learn surfing while you are in Rincon Puerto Rico. My friend and I (J&K) had a great experience with the instructors Rod and Nolan in mid January 2015 and I would highly recommend them to learn surfing. We were able to catch waves, get up regularly, and even started to paddle into the... More

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
