“Super Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We took our kids (19 and 15) to Rincon as part of a 10 day Caribbean trip that had plenty of highlights. Both kids "voted" their surfing experience with Travis' team as the "best" of the "best" of this vacation. Can't ask for a better vote.
They have never been surfing before, and by the end of Day 1 they were enjoying the huge waves off of Dogman! They went out with Omar who was very helpful.
Thumbs Up / Hang Ten for Travis & his team!

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I had the pleasure of having Colin as my instructor for three sessions. Very knowledgable, helpful, and patient. All around good guy and great teacher. He also gave me some great tips on other things to do around town and also on my way to El Yunque.

Travis, the owner, was also very friendly and kept in good communication with me throughout the entire experience.

Highly recommend!

“Excellent Surfing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We checked out several businesses offering surfing lessons in Rincon. Went with Rincon Surf School and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning surfing or improving their skills. Travis and his staff took very good care of us (14 year olds to 52 years old). They spent the time to explain weather, wave dynamics, and safety on the water. Their instructors were ALWAYS positive, calm, and very attentative. We had Colin for 2-days in a row. He is a riot and the surf culture personified. Very professional organizationfrom top to bottom. We'll be back!

“Just Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

I just returned from spending 4 days with the guys at Rincon Surf School (Dec. 20-23, 2012). I took 3 hours of private lessons each day. I had a great time and learned a lot. Travis was great at focusing on making sure I had a good time and that all my needs were met. I was impressed with his focus on my satisfaction. He even arranged things for me outside of surfing, which was not only helpful, but his recommendations were spot on. Omar was my coach on a day to day basis. I was impressed with his knowledge, but more importantly with how much he paid attention to my questions. When I asked the same question a few times in different ways, he noticed I wanted more detail and printed some information for me at night to fully answer my queries. I wanted to learn while I was there, but also wanted to chill and Omar had the perfect approach combining both with ease. I really appreciated the team's focus on safety and the fact that they worked hard to find the right swell for my skill level each day. I have no hesitation in recommending these guys.

“Surfs Up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We were recommended the school by locals, which is always a good sign. My boyfriend and I signed up for a three hour lesson (most other schools tend to take you out for two hours, so do note this is slightly more expensive by about $20) by wandering in on the off chance. The instructors did a great job of fitting us in quickly to their schedule and within an hour we were in the water. Colin was an informative, relaxed and, importantly, very encouraging tutor. I managed to get up twice during the lesson and we surfed til sunset in a group of four.
Great fun, worth every penny.
