    "This camp and its Manager (Ino) and instructors, especially Raf were a great help in teaching my friend how to surf and helping me refine my surfing. After not having surfed for 3 years getting back into a good groove was essential. I just went with a 3 day board rental and was able to change my boards out to see what I was capable of using or wasn't. They will let you surf all day or go and come back later. Ino was very courteous and helpful in helping me make decisions and corrections to my surfing. My buddy Brian was up standing in the first 15 minutes due to Raf's great instruction. The atmosphere at the camp is laid back (no localism) and everyone is happy to be out there surfing. I haven't had this much fun in a long time and I will definitely be coming back."

    "Honestly the most amazing trip we have ever been on and I am so happy I found Pauhana! From the daily surfing in Encuentro to the warm and friendly people and the incredibly beautiful Las Canas accommodations, we will never be the same! We swam in waterfalls rode horses through knee deep surf, had incredible meals and watched spectacular sunsets. They treated us like family and gave us the local insight on amazing activities! I traveled with my two kids, 12 and 13. They had the time of their lives and we made memories together we will treasure forever!"

    "Newbie to surfing - 54 y/o - it was a great experience. Chepe (owner) was so friendly and fun to be around - really put me at ease. Hooked me up with Nicholas, an amazing surfer my age that showed me exactly what to do. These guys are top notch. Took advantage of the surf package and stayed at the Beachcomber east of Cabarete. Jack and Renate were wonderful hosts with a personal touch and provided transfers to the beach and other excursions at reasonable prices."

    "I rented boards at PauHana Surf School & Surf Camp because they had the best selection of boards. As soon as I walked over, I was greeted by Chepe, one of the owners, with the warmest smile. His team hooked me up with an amazing 5.8-feet board and he gave me an awesome deal on renting it for the week and did not charge me for a rashguard or booties. He did not care about charging me for every little thing,but instead he gave me good advice about the break and cared that I am safe and have fun. Not only did I walk away scoring waves, but I walked away scoring friends. Everyone knows Chepe and his talented team of surf instructors because, unlike other surf camps, PauHana Surf School & Surf Camp is owned by Dominicans, so a lot of great local surfers hang out at the surf shack. The next day, I saw the instructors and local surfers all around the town in Cabarete. They said hi to me and invited me to a barbecue which really made my trip special."

    "I am a first time surfer here. There was good instruction before getting in the water. My instructor stayed with me the whole time and was very encouraging. The current and waves were too strong for me to get up, but the experience was worth it. All the staff were very helpful and extremely fun and nice."

    "I took some surfing lessons from Rafael. He had me standing on the board and riding small waves the first time ever. Rafael is very observant and continued to correct my posture, position, timing and the many other factors that go into catching waves. The beach is beautiful and the waves have wonderful forms."
