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.

The Macao Surf Camp and Rafael (Owner) are top notch. This was my first trip to a Surf Camp and I would absolutely recommend it. I did 3 days in a row and as a beginner I was catching waves on the 1st day. The 2nd day I was paddling in on my own and was catching even larger waves.... More

It doesn't matter if you want your child or yourself to learn how to surf the waves, these 3 amigos decided long time ago to establish this training camp in a very nice beach to teach people how to surf. The work done by these 3 entrepreneurs of the sea goes beyond simply teaching surfing, they have provided a way... More

The instructors were great and attentive! This was only our second time surfing so we required a bit more instruction. The waves were pretty aggressive at times so I would definitely be cautious if you're a first timer. Only complaint would be amount of pictures they want to take. We were not interested in getting pics but if you do... More

Such a fun day with 5 kids ages 10-19. All had a wonderful time, each had their own instructor. A very successful experience for all (mom and dad too). Highly recommended.

My son and I happened to visit on a random day in December and caught head high waves. There was a small crowd, and it was easy to catch plenty of waves. The camp has a good selection of boards to rent(at a very reasonable price), from beginner boards to high performance boards. Rafael, who runs the place, is exceptionally... More

Great place to learn to surf. I had two lessons at MSC, once solo and once as a couple. Having had one lesson previously elsewhere, I knew a little bit of the basics but the lesson recap was very helpful. The instructors help you a lot in the water to catch the waves just right which allows you to focus... More

Everyone was extremely helpful and positive for the surfing lesson we had. There were 7 of us total and we all had a great time and really enjoyed the personal touch by everyone having their own surf instructor. Would definitely come back for another visit. Note, it is best to have cash with you to pay for your lesson.

We were a group of ten adults, mostly first time surfers and we had a blast. Each of us had our own instructor (I had Fransisco and we both laughed at my inabilities!!) and we all managed to surf at least a little and we all wiped out too. It was so much fun, we were tired at the end... More

My girlfriend and I had such a great time. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they would do it - transportation to and from- great lesson- treated like a local. My advice is to bring extra water and money for gratuity and for photos...not because you need to --but because you will want... More
