Three Jesus loving friends with more than 30 years of experience, got together to share their Stoke and all the benefits that Surfing gave them through their life; teaching kids from 4 to 76 years old to Surf, to respect the ocean and nature in general. We are in one of the most beautiful and undeveloped beaches of the Dominican Republic, on the Punta Cana area: Macao Beach, a localism free beach where everybody is welcome, with six different breaks and one of the safest beaches to learn how to surf, and yet exciting enough for experienced surfers.

Literally making dreams come true, specially for those that dreamed all their life about riding waves, for those that want to make Surfing their main sports activity, and also for those that just want to get Surfing out of their "bucket list". Surf Shack with showers and lockers.

This was our favorite experience of our trip. They were on time picking us up and we had a great conversation on the ride over. They gave us several minutes to just check out the waves and some of the surfers, and the camp. The camp hut is a basic shelter with port o potties bathrooms, fresh water to shower... More

Two hours of so much fun! I am 65 and my husband is 67 but we took a risk and signed up for surfing lessons. And we are SO glad we did. We were exhausted at the end of 2 hours but also exhilarated. Each student had an individual instructor who was patient and helpful. And the owners are kind,... More

Rafael is so amazing! The instructor I had, Manuelo, was so patient and friendly! He did ask me for a tip, which I didn't appreciate, but he was good so I did tip him. It was a little tough, but nothing a little practice doesn't take care of.

We did a two-hour surf lesson as a Thomas Cook excursion from our hotel. We were picked up from our hotel by Gustavo and he gave us on-land instruction before the assistant instructors took us into the water. I had never done surfing before so I expected just to be paddling around for two hours but the guys set you... More

They loved it so much they wanted to do it again before we left Punta Cana but unfortunately we could not fit it in :( They provide everything you need, even rash guard shirts!... More

We were staying at an all inclusive resort that we hated, so we ventured out to Macao. Absolutely worth it. The beach is beautiful, the surf camp was professionally run and the food was the best. Ask for the owner Rafaele. He is honest and the prices were more than fair. Loved it!!!!

Our family of 6 (kids ages 11 to 18) had a great time with Rafael and the Guys. My wife and I had been surfing here in 2014 on an adults vacation, but decided it would be a great experience for the kids as well. Rafael did not disappoint. Engaging, with some great advice for the kids too! We were... More
