Rincon has been known for the best surfing in the Caribbean for years. If you want to learn how to surf - don't be intimidated by the huge waves at Domes, Marias or Tres Palmas. There are lots of places where the waves are just right for beginners and intermediate surfers. Standup paddle boarding has become so popular in Rincon, there is even a popular race each April at the Villa Cofresi Hotel, the Rincon BeachBoy Standup Paddleboard Race.
If you already know how to ride the waves - you can rent surfboards and body board from the surf shops listed below, but beware, the surf in Rincon can be very dangerous and there are no lifeguards on Rincon beaches!
The 1968 World Surfing Championship and 2007 ISA World Masters Surfing Championship were held in Rincon and there are events sponsored by the Puerto Rico Surfing Association every winter.

Owner and operator of Puntas Surf School, Melissa Taylor moved to Rincon, Puerto Rico in early 2002 after graduating from Flagler College in Florida. She began giving surf classes right away on her own. Her lessons began expanding through the years, and Puntas Surf School was created in 2007. She continues to be the longest standing instructor in Rincon and has a team, who all together have over 25 years of surf instruction experience.
Having had such a great reputation over the last 12 years, Melissa is very particular as to who she hires to work for Puntas Surf. Every client is guaranteed to have their needs met, no matter what level in surfing they are at. Puntas Surf is also very flexible with starting times, cancellations, and we do not make students commit to how long they will be surfing with us. We play it by ear and see how each student is feeling during the lesson.
