Sigrid was super-friendly and very helpful. Angelo was an awesome guide and we really enjoyed the experience. We highly recommend Point Break. They'll give some very, very good recommendations for food too! We plan on visiting again.

Four of us did lessons with Carlos and Oscar: my boys (9,13, and 15) were surfing early and well and I managed to get up on the board (hooray). It was a great experience and the tema at Point Break were super helpful with everything!!!!
