Overview

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 sea was pretty angry the day we visited Macao, and we found out once we got there that they had cancelled all water activities. Not their fault, they were just trying to keep people safe. The staff at the surf camp were all very...More

To not leave a review would be an injustice to the service and help that Rafael and his crew gave us. First of all, if you have never surfed, you have to try it. And Macao Surf Club would be a great place to learn....More

A nice place to learn to surf and hang out. They offer very good lunch (fried fish and rice). This corner of the beach is quiet and relaxing even on weekends.

Sorry for the late reply, you have probably been and gone! About 25 mins - they pick up. We were at the Riu Macao.
