Stayed at Hooked Cabarete and surfed at Pauhana. What a great experience. Had six straight days of great surfing. Very big board selection. They gave me the perfect board, that I used all week. They truly make you feel welcome and part of the family. Chepe is a great host, with many years of experience. Our instructors were Pedro & Jeff. They were excellent. We were sad to go because we made so many new friends. We are already trying to figure out how to go back. Thank you all for a great experience

Great surfing and instructors at the surf camp! They have showers, change rooms and board rentals for all! They teach kids as well as adults! And are very chill! Rash guards and water shoes included in the rental! $35 for a lesson and 2 hours of falling in the waves! A must do if you are in the area!

I checked out all the board rental shops at Encuentro. As I was renting for over a month. This was the only shop that worked with on the price. They still have the love of surfing and laid back attitude that you hope for in a surf shop. I switched boards for different conditions, took it with me for weeks at a time, they were good with it all. I did make a few dings requiring repair, the charge was under $10 usd. Danny, Chepe, Pedro and Jeff were so helpful... all the instructors are excellent surfers and enthusiastically give lessons.

I have three boys under 8 who have become regular fixtures here both at surf school in the summer and on winter breaks. It’s wonderful mix of great characters with a love for surfing and the environment- something they pass on to their students!! More than a surf school- they’re a family! We’ll be back in June!!!!
