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.

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

This was our favorite experience of our trip. They were on time picking us up and we had a great conversation on the ride over. They gave us several minutes to just check out the waves and some of the surfers, and the camp. The camp hut is a basic shelter with port o potties bathrooms, fresh water to shower... More

Two hours of so much fun! I am 65 and my husband is 67 but we took a risk and signed up for surfing lessons. And we are SO glad we did. We were exhausted at the end of 2 hours but also exhilarated. Each student had an individual instructor who was patient and helpful. And the owners are kind,... More

Rafael is so amazing! The instructor I had, Manuelo, was so patient and friendly! He did ask me for a tip, which I didn't appreciate, but he was good so I did tip him. It was a little tough, but nothing a little practice doesn't take care of.
