Take Surf Lessons with
us in Rincon, Puerto Rico!

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.
