Put newfound surfing skills to the test during a surf lesson at Punta Cana’s Macao Beach, situated on the Atlantic side of the Dominican Republic. Your 2-hour session with a qualified local instructor starts with learning the basics — paddling out and popping up — on the sand, before you head into the warm waters of the sea for some guided practice. Enjoy personalized attention in a small group of three participants per instructor, or opt for a private session.

  • Catch waves and stand up on your board with the help of your instructor in the water
  • Hotel transport from Punta Cana included
  • Choose either a private one-on-one lesson or a small-group lesson limited to three people

What You Can Expect

Punta Cana Surf Lesson

Punta Cana Surf Lessons

After pickup from Punta Cana hotels in the morning or afternoon, you’ll meet your surfing instructor at Macao Beach. Once you’re paired with a surfboard and optional life jacket, your lesson begins on the beach. See a demonstration of proper paddling technique and get some practice popping up on your board.
After this introduction to the sport, head into the Atlantic Ocean with your board and guide. Fasten your ankle strap and paddle out from the beach with your instructor guiding you at your side. For extra help catching the waves, you're given a little push from the back of your board and corrected on your form. 
A small-group lesson with a maximum of three students per instructor allows you to receive close communication and instruction from your teacher; however, you will wait your turn to catch waves when you’re in the water. Alternatively, opt for a private, one-on-one lesson at booking to catch the most waves you can. 
Back on the shore, rehydrate with coconut water and fresh fruit before your lesson ends with hotel drop-off in Punta Cana.
