While the best conditions for wind sports and surfing are known to be in Cabarete, we receive a lot of waves too, here in Uvero Alto. Surfing here is not really known at all, except to a few local surfers that have been surfing here alone for years... In Uvero Alto, we have the privilege of having the most varied types of waves and the best consistency in the eastern region from Punta Cana to Bavaro to Macao, we have the best conditions and waves for all levels of surfing. Throughout the whole year, our bay receives waves and has different breaks for each season and level of surfing... from shallow fast barrels and long peeling walls to our learning zone. The learning zone is where the beginner surfing lessons take place. Lessons here are ideal for the inherent safety of the spot and the whitewater waves. We, those local surfers, take pride in teaching a real surf lesson. We are three friends that have been surfing for years, some of us more than others. We are friends because we have a common thought when it comes to the ocean: we admire it, we have a passion for it and we respect it. We have surfed Uvero Alto for many years and nothing would make more sense for us than to share what we feel in the water with anyone willing to try it. The speed, the power, the rush, the feeling, the stoke, the water, the ocean; we would genuinely enjoy introducing you, to our world. « less

This school is just perfect: The beach is very nice with very good waves. I think that a lot a surfers can have fun there: from beginers to advanced. Rolando is a very good coatch so we manage to have fun since the very first day. (We have tried to surf once before and it was not so easy). Moreover... More

This was a great surf school experience! Rolando was very responsive via e-mail as we booked the lessons and he and Roberto were amazing instructors. My husband and I had never surfed before and we had such a great time. I'll be honest and say that I was *awful*, but Roberto had so much patience and was so encouraging. We... More

Having found the school on the web, we contacted them for some additional questions. Replies came quick and were very helpful. The site of the school is VERY simple, but at a perfect beach to surf - specially for beginners. Unlike other surf spots it is sandy way out (and not a rocky or corral reef - where you tend... More

I can't say enough good things about this surf school experience. My three teenagers took the lesson while my husband and I watched. All three kids were surfing in no time. The instructors were friendly and knowledgable and clearly love the sport. They were great teachers. We loved the secluded beach and the laid back nature of the operation. It... More

I had a great time surfing with Rolando at Uvero Alto surf school. I chose Uvero Alto over some of the other schools in the area because I thought I may have a better chance at more personalized instruction and service. While the other schools may be more established, I was worried they may be crowded and lack personalized service.... More

Quick lesson on the sand and how to stand up once you're on. Then we go in the water ! After a while, staying where i still have foot, with good... More

My wife had never surfed before. On the other hand, I've been surfing for 14 years now but wanted my... More

I had an excellent time. The place was great the teachers were awesome and the vibe was the best. The instructors really helped me out in the water with tips and assistance and they were really attentive to me all the time in and out of the water. It also helped to know that the School is just a 20... More
