Professional Surfing Lessons at La Pared Beach in Luquillo

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Head down to the friendly and hip surfer town of Luquillo; only a 45-minute drive from San Juan, and home to the Island’s best beginner surfers beach, “La Pared”. With a sandy bottom, easy waves, and located near most mayor attractions on the east coast, La Pared is the perfect place to learn to surf and make the most out of your day in Puerto Rico.

    After meeting your professional surf instructor, slip on your rash guard and head to the sand where preparation for the best moment of your vacation takes place. Your pro instructor will provide a complete educational pre-ride instruction covering everything from surfboard basics, ocean awareness, surf technique and safety. 

    Following theory, lie down on your state of the art soft-top board to practice alongside instructors the proper pop-up technique, and correct body position until form is perfected. Once your technique is down, it’s time to hit the waves and prepare your face for the biggest smile it has experienced in a while!

    In the water your instructors will stay by your side the entire time and tailor the experience to your skill level. At this time it’s all about having fun! One instructor will be assigned to take complementary pictures of your experience as you put the your new knowledge into practice, and finally get up on that first wave feeling like a total champ! You will never forget your first wave, so make it a good one, Surf Puerto Rico!

    I didn’t see any jet skis or water craft around La Pared. Definitely do surfing lessons with Brian.
