When we first arrived at Macao beach the waves were extremely small and braking very close to shore. We had 11 people in our group and everyone was very upset because we thought there was no way we could surf in such small waves. I saw pictures of people surfing at this beach and told my family that I thought it would be good for beginners. Nobody beieved me, especially my 2 sons who already know how to surf. Rafael was not there yet, but some of the instructers kept telling us it would be good for beginners. My son sai that he was just saying that to get our money and he convinced everyone that we should go back to the hotel. We had to wait for Rafael to show up to make arrangements to go back to the hotel and everyone was in a bad mood. When Rafael finally arrived he was so nice and friendly that he calmed everyone down. He told us the waves were perfect for beginners and that they would probably get a little better as the day went on. He also said it would be no problem to take us back to the hotel and we would get our money back for the excursion. My cousin asked Rafael to prove that the waves were surfable and he sent a few instructors and a dog out to show us it was possible. After this we all decided to stay and it was the best decision we ever made. The instructors were great and My instructor was very helpful and patient and I finally got up on about the 5th try. This is definitely the best excursion i have ever done. The next day we went ziplining and it was a big let down after the surfing epxerience. The only people that didn't have as much fun were my sons who surf all the time. The waves got a little bigger for them and they had a good time just being out in the ocean, but they would have preferred much bigger waves. Rafael told us that the waves are much bigger in the winter so If you already know how to surf you probably shouldn't come in the summer. I have tried surfing a few times without much success, but now I know exactly what I was doing wrong and can't wait to try again. I am sure I will be able to do it now.
