I never thought I could learn to surf until I met this team of awesome and talented instructors. They made it simple and safe to learn and so much fun. During breaks, they often pulled out a guitar, sang and performed spoken word improv. Spent most of my days just surfing and hanging out feeling fabulous. Wished I could've stayed... More

Marcus and his crew run a relaxed and fun surfing school on the magical Encuentro beach. Professional instruction and capable staff to get you up on your board the first time every time. Loved every minute of it.

My wife and I took our very first surf lessons here and loved every second of it! The guys working there were very funny and patient with us while we learned. Dauri was our surf instructor and he did a great job setting us up and finding the perfect waves. Couldn't have been any happier with our experience and would... More

Marcus and his staff are professional and prepared to teach and follow the needs of anybody interested in watersports. With my girlfriend we took a five days course, it has been incredibly funny and prolific time!!

I have Been going to 321Takeoff couple of times a year since 2009 - Marcus and his team are really dedicated - making sure you have the best experience possible - giving the right advices the right way. If you are in Cabarete - this is a place you dont want to miss!

I was taking photos of students taking surf lessons at all the schools at Encuentro Beach for 3 weeks. This was hands down the best school at the beach for a few important reasons. Most of the instructors at all the school are very friendly and knowledgable. What separates this school from the others was their organization, cleanliness and maintenance... More

I recently returned from Cabarete and ended my week-long kiteboarding trip with two mornings of surf lessons at 321 Takeoff. Marcus was very welcoming and inviting and from the initial phone call throughout my entire time on the beach. My water lessons were with Dowri (sp?) and he was very knowledgable, friendly and encouraging. I found it very helpful when... More

I couldn't have picked a better place or people to learn how to surf with. Marcus was inviting from the moment I met him, as were his knowledgable instructors, Chulo, Ricky, and Alexander. Encuentro Beach is a special place, and these guys made my few days there a blast. See you guys again in a few months!
