The practice on the beach ensured that everyone in the group lessons that day got up to ride the waves! My 13 yr old & his 12 yr old friend were both successful many times & didn’t feel beat-up by the surf when falling off - said the bottom was soft & sandy. Only drawback was due to the size of the group they had to share a board so got less opportunities which was frustrating to them & the digital picture that was indicated as part of the package didn’t happen. Would still for sure book again & will be looking for more surf opportunities on future trips. Thank you surfing Puerto Rico for helping the boys discover an additional interest!

My husband and daughters (17 and 13) thoroughly enjoyed their lesson with Brian. He’s extremely knowledgeable, personable and clearly enthusiastic and passionate about what he does. He is encouraging and wants everyone to have a positive experience. It was fun for me to observe and watch, and next time I will join! April was also very nice and helpful. Highly recommend if you’re in the area and have any interest in surfing.

Brian is awesome - very patient with kids. You can tell he loves that island as well. Wife and two youngest children took the lessons and absolutely loved it. Let your kids go...they pick it up easier than the adults. It is convenient to have the option to book online. La Pared was awesome. Three of our five family members took the lessons, but the two of us that did not were able to go snorkeling just 100 yards away. Walk the other way and there is a cool rock outcrop to go exploring as well.

My two daughters came for a lesson. We arrived a few minutes late but were assured this was ok. My husband decided to also take a lesson because my 11 year old was nervous. When my 11 year old went to join the group the instructor asked her name. When she didn’t answer he berated her in front of everybody. He told her he could not teach her. He said she needed to leave. He pointed for her to go and for everyone else to follow. It is unbelievable that an adult can treat a child that way. He reduced her to tears and for no reason. He tried to apologize later to me after I returned to pick up my husband and older daughter. Nothing could excuse his behavior.

We surfed Luquillo in January. Water was very rough due to winds. Our instructor was excellent. He kept us safe and gave good tips. Knowing the waves is all important and he did.
The equipment is good for what we needed. If you want to learn to surf I recommend this group.

The owners, Brian and April, were fantastic with communication.
We had an absolute blast!
All four in my family were able to get up on the board and experience surfing in a safe environment.
We liked how the water was only 3 or 4 feet at the absolute deepest point, so our kids had no issues.
Brian is passionate about teaching, and it shows in the way he runs the business.
If you are new to surfing, or an experienced surfer looking to become better, Surfing Puerto Rico was the way to go.
Overall, from our first contact on, they were great people to work with.

Stuffs there are not friendly. Some of them make my family members feel afraid and being treated unfairly. Besides that, no bathroom supplied, we have to buy a cup of coffee to use cafe's bathroom. Unfriendly and unconvinient enrionment makes me feel unconfortable and will suggest my friends not come for this tour.

Dear guest, First, we want to sincerely thank you for sponsoring a local business like us, Surfing Puerto Rico. We are extremely sad to read about the experience you are describing here. It confuses us deeply, because as you can read in all the other reviews, we work hard every day to create the happiest memories for all our guests and their families. An experience like the one you are describing here just does not seem like us. Therefore, we would sincerely appreciate if we could learn more about your case. We would like to know specific details of your experience and would appreciate if you could give us a second chance. We have no report nor received any complaint from a customer about having a negative experience with us in a long time. We are confident that if we had known at the time that you and your family were having a bad trip with us, we would have taken swift action and would have immediately accommodated to your needs, or make up for it in the way of your preference. Having said that, we would like to clarify a few things for our future guests. As you can see here and in all our social media and online presence, we treat all our guests so warmly that they get to know us on a first name basis. Brian, Mari, Gorilla, are some of our crew members and you can see their names popping up around here because we work so close with our guests throughout the whole ride that they normally remember our names for a long time. In fact, a great percentage of our guests repeat our tour, just because they want to surf again with the crew! Secondly, one of the first things we teach our participants in the land session is to loose all fear and to not feel afraid. Our catch phrase has always been: "do not hesitate”, because in surfing if you hesitate and surrender to fear, you miss your wave, you loose your chance. Therefore, we endeavor to create an environment where our guests can feel safe and confident. We surf in shallow water, with a sandy bottom, away from currents, and have staff all around you the whole time so all our guests, from very young kids —even those in the spectrum of autism— to older adults can just unleash their adventurous spirits and go with the waves. Thirdly, we do have a bathroom. It is right across the street next to our private showers. It is available to all our guests upon request. Sometimes people get confused and think that we only have a truck parked at the beach, but we have more facilities just a few steps away, identified with a big sign and a 9 feet mural featuring our name, logo and a painting of us surfing. You are free to check it out on our Facebook page. It confuses us deeply why this review claims that we do not have a bathroom. As always, we welcome constructive criticism because it does not only show us the way for improvement, but also give us the opportunity to help our customers make well-informed decisions. Sometimes things might not go according to our plans, but rest assured that our ultimate goal is to give you the happiest experience of them all. Yours truly, Dorimar Ortiz Sales & Customer Service Leader Surfing Puerto Rico

Brian and his family are wonderful— the online process for reserving a lesson is easy, the company truck is easy to find and they started on time. Great package and great deal for a 2-hour lesson with Brian, who has over 30 years experience and was very inspiring and patient. Luquillo La Pared beach waves are awesome and the beach is magnificent to spend the day at. It was more than just a lesson—it felt like spending the day with a good friend/family member. Definitely recommend it for the whole family!!

My kids (ages 8 and 6), and I became surfers today, thanks to Brian, April, and crew. Their instruction, philosophy, and positive attitude shine through to support everyone. I have never surfed, and I had never considered it. I am so thankful I did. In my opinion, how successful one is has little to do with standing up on the board, and everything to do with perseverance and deciding on joy. This is the place and the people for that!
