Safety and Stoke
Can you pick us up at our hotel?
Yes! Transportation is included to and from most of the hotels in the Punta Cana area. However, some hotels, due to the distance, require an additional transfer fee. You can verify any additional fee when you choose your hotel in the reservation form.
At what time are your lessons?
We have lessons starting at 9am. The school is ope from 8:30am. You can verify times and availability on the booking form.
Do you teach surfing to small children?
We teach children of all ages. We just require that they know how to swim and feel confident in the water. We teach small children in a very controlled and secure environment in shallow water.
Do you offer group discounts?
The more the merrier!! You can see the option for reduced group rates in the booking form, under “5+ surfers”.
How many instructors will give the surfing lesson? What is the size of the group?
Our student to instructor ratio in the water is always 1 to 1. The safety briefing, and theory on the sand are provided in a small group setting.
I would prefer a private lesson, do you offer this as an option?
Sure! Saskya, the owner of Punta Cana Surf Adventure, provides private lessons where she gives the instruction exclusively to the booked clients, in a private setting. You can book lessons with her under the Surf Lessons option.
When are you closed?
We are closed on Sundays, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and the last three days of Easter Week. You will not be able to book lessons or rentals on those days.
What should I bring to the beach?
If you are renting or taking lessons, bring sun-block and a towel. We will offer each participant a rash-guard to use during the activity.
Can I take multiple lessons throughout my vacation?
Absolutely! We offer great savings on Multiple-days packages that you can book under “Surf Immersion”.
How many hours will I be out of the hotel?
From pick-up to drop-off approximately 3.5 – 4 hours. It will vary depending on your hotel’s location and the number of stops the shuttle makes.
I have never surfed before, and do not consider myself a fit person. Could I still take the lessons?
Yes!! Surfing is a very technical sport and with the proper equipment and instruction, anyone can do it!
I have had recent surgery/health problems. Can I still take the lessons?
Only with the approval of your doctor you can practice surfing after surgery or with any health condition that does not allow you to perform rigorous physical activity.
I have taken lessons before, can I just rent the equipment?
We offer rentals for anyone with former experience, but we will ensure that you know the safety rules, surfing etiquette and have enough knowledge and skill to surf on your own without supervision.
I want to take the lessons but my partner just wants to come along. Is this possible?
Sure! There is a transportation fee for non-surfing companions. This option is bookable on the booking form.
Can we meet you on the beach?
Absolutely! You have the option of booking a surf lesson without transportation under the “Surf Lessons” option of the website.
What are the conditions on the beach?
Macao Beach is a shallow beach break with a sandy bottom. The beach has the advantage of offering smaller waves to the right, and they get bigger to the left, so there is something for every skill level.
