Can't say enough about our experience with Bob and his group of surfing instructors! They are super organized and always put safety first.

A great group of guys provided my grandchildren and some of their friends with surfing training at a safe Fortuna beach perfect for such an activity and produced positive results for all of the participants. I would recommend this group for surfing training with no reservations.

On the advice of a local, we booked first-timer surf lessons for our three sons aged 13, 15, and 18. Correspondence was timely, and Bob texted us the morning of the lesson to let us know which location on the beach we would be starting from in Luquillo. The group was small, which was great for both the dry-land training... More

Even before arriving to Puerto Rico, Bob was very responsive in helping us plan our lesson and gear rental. His team made the entire experience fun and memorable - they taught me so much! The beach was gorgeous and Bob and Justo made sure students were benefiting from the conditions that day. I will head back next time I visit... More

Best day. My son's, ages 14,12, and 10 declared it their favorite part of our trip to Puerto Rico. Bob and his crew were very patient with my spouse and me (50 +) and they had the kids standing up and surfing in an amazingly short time. The lesson was 1 1/2 hrs. but they continued to let us use...

Due to high winds, our sailing and subsequent kayaking trips got cancelled. Bob's was able to proceed though and the wind made it a great surf day! Justo was ready to meet us within 2 hrs to get started. The instruction was great and my husband and 3 boys aged 11, 12 & 14 had a great time.

We called a couple of days ahead and got a 9am slot for two of us - both of us pretty athletic with decent board-sports experiences (but no surfing). We were worried we'd be bored playing around in easy waves. Wow were we wrong! Bob & his crew quickly sized us up and took us out to the bigger waves.... More

I took my six year old twins surfing with Bob's Surfing, and they had the experience of a lifetime. They both got up on the boards and were definitely not ready to stop when the lesson was over! The guys could not possibly have been kinder or more helpful. It was the highlight of our trip, and I recommend without... More

My family took a surfing lesson with Bob and his crew of instructors back in December and it was the highlight of our Puerto Rico vacation! We ranged in age from 12 years old all the way up to 48. The instruction was excellent and they were all extremely friendly and helpful. All of us were catching waves and having... More

My husband and two sons took lessons from Bob's and had an excellent experience from start to finish. The instructors were thorough, focused on safety, encouraging and lots of fun. We had a variety of ages and abilities and everyone had a good time and were able to surf by the end of the lesson.
