Surfing is a must-do while you're in Rincon, and I can't imagine a better experience than with Rincon Surf School. I'm terrified of the ocean and wanted to make sure our lesson was with someone I could trust. Despite all other surf schools being closed New Years Day, Collin, the manager of the school, took us out himself. He was unbelievably patient (seriously- before that day I'd only been past the breakwater once in my life and was trying to 'conquer the ocean' as a new years thing). The weather was working against us, but Collin was with us every step of the way and managed to cater to my level (phobia) and my husband's (fairly athletic) at the same time. I can't say enough about what a great decision this was. Just do it!

We spent a terrific day with Rincon Surf school. That was our first experience and we got the chance to have a private lesson with Ryan Dacey, an awesome coach. He gave us good tricks, told us when to catch the good waves and pushed us to help us to grab the waves. Personaly, I discovered a passion! I rode a wave for real only once, but i got an amazing feeling...that has been CRAZY!! I'll repeat the experience as soon as i can... not later than this summer...!

I highly recommand the Rincón Surf School to everyone who wants to discover the Surf world!

Thank you so much! 8 )

Had a great time learning a new sport. The instruction and their experience was great. Got up on my first wave on the first try. Something everyone should try.

Three of us did the private lesson with John Barrie (pro surfer). He was outstanding, supportive and very cute to boot! We highly recommend the rash guard and DRIVING to the surf school instead of walking up the hill. (It really is at the top!) We always felt safe and supported and that one great run was worth every wipeout! Highly recommend!

I have never surfed and wanted to try. I took a day group lesson with Rincon Surf School and it was an awesome experience! The guides were relaxed, yet helpful. They gave good instructions and really helped with the timing of the waves, allowing you to focus on trying to get up before paddling back around and trying again. As a 41 year old, yet fit, woman, I wasn't sure if I would even like it, but I did. It was a great first experience with surfing. Also, we watched other instructors while we were out there and they were less helpful, less aware of the surrounding surfers, and not as hands on instructive as RSS. I'd go with them if you're choosing! Lastly, I was super sore-- should have taken a lunch break or taken a shorter lesson for my first time.
