This excursion was the highlight of my trip to The DR. Watching my daughters surf was so fun. My daughter's instructor was Eddie. He was awesome. The photographer Giovanni took amazing photos. They came out great even though it was a windy dreary day.

Although the surf was rough, we felt we were in very safe hands with our one on one instructors and the three of us managed to get up and ride 2 out of 3 waves in no time. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

My husband and I traveled to Punta Cana. Our resort connected us with Coast Riders for a day trip. My husband loves surfing, but I was a first-timer.

We were in Punta Cana on a company sponsored vacation and decided to book a last minute surfing session. My husband is an experience surfer so he surfed solo while I took a lesson. The instruction was great and the staff were a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

I took my 2 kids (8 and 10) for our first ever surf lesson. The instructors were so good. Patient, helpful and got all 3 of us up on surfboards in no time (especially the kids). They also helped them advance to Advance Beginners. This place was awesome and highly recommend (Giovanni took the BEST pictures)

We had a great time with Coast Riders. The instructors were helpful and the surfing was great! We went to Punta Cana for Christmas and this was one of the main reasons why, they did not disappoint!
