“Awesome Surfing Day”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Recently while in the DR my husband and 5 teenagers had a wonderfull morning of surfing. Macao beach was so beautiful and a perfect place to try out surfing for the first time. Clear, warm water, no rocks or seaweed....awesome beach! After a short on land lesson we headed to the water and we were all able to get up in no time! We all had one on one attention which was very helpfull. All the instructors would cheer for us when we caught a good wave which made it fun and was encouraging. Jimmy, Giovanni and Carlos were great! From the pickup, the ride, the surf lessons they all made it a very memorable day for our family. Beyond surfing (which was a definite highlight of our trip) the guys were so personable and we learnt alot about life in the DR. We would highly recommend this excursion to anyone.

“Your Surf and Skate community hangout in Punta Cana!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Surfer's and skater's can hang out at this really cool shop, check out the clothes and gear, chat with fellow riders, and hit the skate park next to the mall parking lot. Great atmosphere and fun conversation. The shop offers riding lessons for both sports (I went on the surf excursion. It was excellent!) and hosts contests and other events. They are very community oriented an do things to help out in the local community especially with young riders and students.

“Best Surfing Ever”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Wonderful surfing experience. Knowledgeable and very friendly staff. Giovanni and Jimmy were fantastic. Picked us up from Dream PC Resort and took us directly to Macao Beach. This beach was great for surfing, only waist height water and no rocks - which was handy after a few tumbles. My younger cousins and girlfriend had no problem getting up on several waves and Jimmy spent lots of time one on one with my youngest cousin to build up his confidence in the water. All of us enjoyed a great time and some much needed refreshments before being brought back to dreams. No pedlars or people harassed us which was a bonus. Entire experience was approx 3 hours. Well worth the 90 US each.

“Wonderful Experience!!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

My husband and I recently took a trip to the Dominican Republic. We've never surfed before and wanted to give it a shot. I was a little nervous at first, but Carlos and Jimmy were fantastic! They made me feel comfortable right away. They gave us a short lesson on techniques and we were off to the water in no time! They were always with us in the water and helped us find a technique that suited us... Less than an hour later we were SURFING!!!! We had a blast and would definitely recommend it to everyone and would do it again in a heartbeat!!!!

“Awesome fun!!! We had a blast!!!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My family and I just returned from a family trip to Punta Cana... We had talked about an excursion to take surfing lessons and made an inquiry at our resort. We made the reservations and were picked up on Wednesday morning and were met by Jimmy, for the 20 minute ride to Macao beach.... Jimmy was great, he explained what we were going to do, what to expect and some funny insights along the way.
When we arrived at the beach we were met by Carlos and the 'crew' who would be in the water helping us out. After a quick instruction on the beach, we set off into the water.
My two boys, ages 6 and 9, were given a little extra instruction by Carlos, then they went into the water. Carlos actually went in and worked with our 6 year old!! Both boys were up and riding after the first wave.... They had a blast and have not stopped talking about it....
The rest of us in the 'class' (there were only 4 of us) were out a little further and each of us had a someone helping us... We all had a great time... Carlos, Jimmy and the crew were so much fun and enthusiastic...
Thanks again, guys... See you next year!!!!
