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!

Giovanni was our guide for the day and was extremely welcoming from the second he picked us up until he dropped us off back at the hotel. He took us to Macao Beach, which had outstanding waves for any experience level. My wife and I had never surfed before, so we each had our own instructor for nearly 3 hours!... More

The beach is beautiful and authentic, you will not want to get out of the water as it will rival the pool of where ever you will be staying. With the lesson we quickly went over the basics and went into the water for the real... More
