We had a group of 10 guys together for a bachelor party and were looking do do something active outdoors. After contacting Dave he was very helpful and enthusiastic from the start! Once we were at the beach Dave and his colleagues were very thorough in their instruction of not only surfing but how to stay safe in the ocean. Once in the water we were all very well directed and everyone got up standing and was riding waves on their own in no time! Dave and his crew provided a fantastic experience not only professionally, but were really fun to hang out with for a burrito and a couple beers afterwards. And being locals, they had no problem pointing us in the right direction for a good time later on! I'd highly recommend Dave's 360 surf school to anyone visiting the area looking for a great outdoors experience!

We took family trip to Cancun the week before Christmas and this was one thing we HAD to do! This was by far the best day of our vacation--rain or shine it was worth every penny spent! We booked the family surfing lessons and I would highly recommend to anyone traveling with kids. Dave was amazing with all of us but especially our daughters, ages 7 and 9. He was thorough and explained everything clearly. His was energetic and encouraging to the girls the entire time. None of us wanted to leave and my cheeks were hurting from smiling and laughing so much! We were all able to learn to surf together that day and it is a day we will never forget. If we had another day of vacation left we would have booked another lesson or at the very least rented boards the next day! We all had a ball and will definitely go back to 360 Surf School when we travel that way again! I highly recommend 360 surf school without any reservations! Other helpful hints for your excursion:
- located directly across from Senior Frogs so very easily accessible by the bus
- must eat at the Surfing Burrito after lessons and enjoy the best margarita ever
-although there is not a shower available; there is a nice restaurant next door where you can change clothes
- there is a convenience store next door to purchase water, soft drinks, snacks, etc.
- be sure to tip the assistant that catches the board and keep you and yours safe :)

My daughter (11) and son-in-law took a lesson from Dave. He was so kind, helpful, excited with our successes, and fun to be around. We absolutely loved the lesson. Not only that, they were both successful at learning how to surf and did a great job. Dave is a lot of fun. We typically stay in the Playa Del Carmen area and rarely venture to Cancun - just not our style. However, this lesson with Dave was well worth the trip. Not only that, the beach was beautiful. The waves are kind of small but are perfect for learning on. There are other surf instructors, but this is the one you want. Trust me!

My husband and I met Dave from 360 for a surf lesson the beach in Cancun. We'd had a couple of lessons before but they were many years ago so we thought we'd need to start from the beginning. Dave took us through the basics on the beach before taking us out to catch some waves. We were amazed to be able to stand up on the board almost every time. We spent a very enjoyable couple of hours learning how to balance and turn on the board. Dave was an amazing teacher and super enthusiastic. He cheered us on when we were doing well and provided helpful guidance when things didn't quite go to plan! I'd thoroughly recommend Dave and 360!
