Our surf lessons are one of the most unexpectedly amazing experiences you can have in Puerto Rico. They day of your lesson, just head to La Pared Beach in Luquillo, located about ten to fifteen minutes from El Yunque Rainforest. Here you will find our Surf Truck, packed with surfboards, rash guards, t-shirts, and everything you could possibly need to have the best surfing adventure ever! Check-in time begins 30 minutes before the lesson starts. This is good time to meet our instructors and discuss any concerns, needs, or expectations.
The lesson will start with a 30 minute land session, covering ocean awareness, safety, and proper surf technique. After we get the technique down, we grab our boards and get straight to the water for a rush of wind and waves. In the water session, you will be riding one wave after the other for 1.5 hours! We will show you how to read the waves, position your take off, stand up in your surfboard, and land safely. Our licensed surfing professionals will be with you in the water at all times. They will be also taking complementary pictures of your experience.
Halfway into the water lesson, we will take a 10 minute break for hydration and a quick snack. At the end of the lesson, we get together for the coolest group photo you will ever have! Then, you can wash off all the salt and sand at our private showers, and go have a nice meal at one of our awesome local restaurants. From our experience, you should make surfing one of your first activities in Puerto Rico, because you will want to be back for more!

Groups of 10 or more guests must cancel at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the excursion in order to receive a full refund. Cancellations of groups made in less than 2 weeks prior to the excursion date will maintain a full charge on any spaces we are unable to resell.

Due to the unique nature and small size of our groups, we are forced to remain firm about our cancellation policy.

Regardless of the cancellation reason, our time and fixed costs are already invested; we may even have turned down other customers by holding your space. Thank you for understanding!
