My family and I have just returned from the Surf2Live vacation house in Puerto Rico after an amazing 4 day stay. Elliot did everything to make it an excellent time. He took me to several different surf breaks, assessed my skills and helped me fix many of the surfing mistakes I had been making. He helped me catch waves that... More

Small group A lot of instructors Nice brake with water and chips Quiet place with few people on the beach Would recommend to my friends to try surfing.

Surf camps seem to fill our beach, but Surf2Live has been doing this for years. My children love the one on one instruction they get, plus the amount of time they spend surfing is almost all of the camp time, with a necessary lunch/snack break in between. Every year they get better and also share a mutual love and respect... More

I took a group lession here in June 2014 I had taken several private lessons durign the prior 6 months which were great, was able to stand up on the surfboard easily and had a lot of fun. This lesson did not go so well, I think for two reasons: 1. the group lesson format was difficult (students on their... More

I've taken a few lessons Surf2Live because they have regular group lesson on the weekends at a reasonable price. I've only taken group lessons, but I suspect a private lesson with Elliot would be very good, because during group lesson he's given me very helpful, specific feedback. The drawback is the group lessons are mostly staffed by teenagers. Teenagers, unsurprisingly,... More

If you have young children who would like to explore surfing, then this school is definitely not the place to go. Unlike other surf schools they only had one teacher in the water, which given the strong surf was not appropriate. I am sure they do better with adults who need less attention.

I've been infected. I'm addicted. I can't stop thinking about it. And I'm ready for more... No, it's not the latest Justin Bieber hit song. It's the sensation you get as you ride an incoming wave. There's no greater feeling in the world than having a wave barrel around you as you glide effortlessly across its face on a 7'... More

I spent three days at Elliot's beautiful house in Aguadilla and had the best time. I had just started learning to surf about five months before, so i was still very much a beginner--and pretty nervous in the water. I was just hopeful that I'd be able to stand up on a couple of waves. But I ending up riding... More

The surf lessons, expert introduction to the sport, guidance every step of the way, food and accomodations at Surf 2 Live in Puerto Rico are outstanding. The estate is less than 15 minutes from the airport and Jet Blue flies direct. I recommend three days minimum to get the most of the Aguadilla area.
