Rincon is perhaps best known as a surfer’s haven, after being discovered by the world following the 1968 World Surfing Championships. Surfing in Rincon offers a variety of breaks with different waves suited for any learning curve or style. Catch an easy longboard wave at Maria’s or rip it on your shortboard at Domes. Surfing season in Rincon Puerto Rico lasts from Dec – April, but you can occasionally catch some small swells in the summer or fall.
If you’re new to surfing and have never ever been on a board, or if it’s been a long time and you want to improve on the basics, then Learn to Surf is more your style. The instructor will tailor the class to your ability.
If you’ve been surfing for several years and have an advanced understanding of the basics (stand up on the wave, ride the face regularly or perform advance maneuvers such as turns) then you might be ready for the Guided Surf Adventure, which takes you on an all-day guided surf trip around Rincon to some of the best, secret and more advanced surf breaks. This is your chance to surf with a local and get insider knowledge about Rincon surfing.
On this tour an experienced local guide will take you to a great selection of surf breaks on the West Coast. You’ll learn what to watch for at each break, from reef and rock to currents and swell patterns. Plus, you’ll get a tour of the off-the-beaten-path surf spots that many visitors never get a chance to visit. Your instructor will give helpful pointers depending on your level of ability – from improving on the basics, to style tips on the more advanced maneuvers.
If you have younger, advanced surfers that are yearning for a challenge, but mom and dad don’t want them in the water alone this is a great, safe option for a more adventurous surf experience.
