      Great experience
      Ángel was a fantastic instructor. He was very specific with the instructions,very helpful, and very supportive. He would explain the mistakes and give you tips to improve in a helpful matter. It was a very fun experience, overall a great time, and I would recommend trying this experience with Ángel.

      Ray the Rock Star!
      We had an amazing time!! Even on a day when waves were few and far between, Ray was a fantastic coach and instructor, and helped us to make the most of it. The weather during our trip was very hard to predict so we didn’t book surfing in advance. When we showed up with fingers crossed and no reservations, Ray was there to save the day! He gave us great refresher information and tips/tricks while on land, then walked us through the process in the water. He was so helpful, and showed how much he enjoys his trade. Highly recommend!!

      Ability to swim is required!
      The ad falsely states that no swimming experience is necessary. This was the sole reason we chose this company, as my sister in law can’t swim. However, Victoria, our instructor said that was not the case and swimming was very much necessary. I have contacted the owner to let him know that his ad is false and have requested a refun. Have not yet received it.

      A gnarly experience
      We came on a clear and beautiful day, the waves were perfect for learning, and the guide (although I don’t remember his name) was super awesome. He explained things thoroughly, and was there to guide and help us catch waves. It was an even better experience than I could have anticipated! I highly recommend Waterworld Surfing School at the Marriott.

      Positive experience but not best for short people
      Lots of instructors in the water keeping everyone safe and moving the group back together as people drifted off or the tide changed to make certain parts of the coast have deeper water. Good instructions and tips from instructors all of whom were very friendly. In front of a hotel with lots of beach chairs for members of family not doing the lessons. I had a great time as a beginner and managed to stand up in time to ride the end of a few waves. This is not lil kiddy waves but actual ones so it can be hard getting the board and urself far out enough to have enough time to stand while you surf back but instructors help you through it at least in the beginning while you are learning. If you are short or don’t know how to swim I dont recommend this because after a certain point u have to be the one to walk/swim ur board out to a point where you can surf back in and the water (at least when I went ) was 5 foot normal and up to 8 or so with waves

      Not legit
      Sorry, the guy was super nice and deserved kudos for repeatedly pulling the kids out past the white water break, but I should have known to do more research. The surf lesson was booked not in the morning, but mid day. There was not much dry land instruction and not water safety mentions. It was a red flag day. Boards are short, lightweight foam boards. Kids have surfed before but this day was a mess. At a certain point we asked if the instructor could demonstrate catching a wave, and he could not. Please do your research on where the best surf is in PR and go there if you want to be serious about surfing. For this location perhaps it’s best to stick with boogie boarding and don’t waste $100+ for a lesson.

      Now my daughter wants a surfboard for Christmas
      Angel was such a fabulous instructor! Especially for this wannabe surfer family. He took his time with us on the sand before tossing us to the waves. Ha! He kept an eye on the water conditions to make sure we had skill level appropriate waves. Mom and Dad gave it our all but eventually relented to the peaceful sand but Angel stayed out in the surf with our determined teenage daughter for over an hour until she caught a few perfect waves. She's hooked now! Thank you, Angel for going above and beyond to give us an incredible experience.

      First timer caught a wave
      Ray was a good instructor. An hour into my first time ever on a board, I was able to stand up and ride a wave. He was supportive and encouraging. Good vibes all the way!

      Book with him! We had a blast!
      Angel is an amazing instructor. He’s directions are very clear and in depth. He had us practice what to do before we got in but we were surfing the first day and actually stood up on the board and rode a wave. He is there in the water with you helping you out and looking out for you. He fills you with confidence watching you and guiding you in the water. He’s like a fish out of water he’s been surfing over 20 years so he really is a pro. When we come back we’ll definitely surf with him again! You won’t regret it if you do!

      Family Friendly
      Zero complaints. Our booking didn’t have a specified time, so we were free to start whenever we wanted. Very laid back and friendly team. The waves were too low for my wife and me, so the instructors immediately offered us a refund or rain check. The kids went ahead with the class and loved it. About 10-15 minutes of instruction on the beach, then about 30 minutes with the instructor in the water. Once the kids had the hang of things, we were told that they could use the boards on their own for another hour. They made the most of a day with little, to no, waves.

      Hands down the best instructor!
      Carlos is an amazing instructor. My 7 year old daughter went from never having surfed to being able to stand on the board and ride the waves all the way in to shore! You will not be disappointed.

      Surfing adventure
      Alexis was an amazing coach who took the time to give us specific pointers that helped us "get it". He even skipped his break between lessons to make sure we were able to surf on our own after the class. During my whole trip, no one worked harder to ensure that we had a great time. The class started with a quick lesson on the beach. We then moved into the ocean where the learning area was shallow, but the waves were more than sufficient to surf. The board was in good shape and held my weight well. Alexis taught us how to balance on the board and held it in place until we caught the wave. Overall, this was a very fun experience. I got a good workout and learned a new skill that I can use at any beach around the world. More than worth the money and could not have asked for a better or more patient teacher.

    This is a scam. Terrible experience. We booked our lesson and called to confirm. They told us when to arrive and we got there early. Nobody was there. We waited for around 2 hours and kept calling and they would say they’re on their way. They never showed up. Two other couples arrived while we were there and had the same experience. Having trouble getting a refund. I don’t think this is a legitimate business, it is a scam! Do not book!
