This wonderful sporting activity does not differentiate ages or sexes. Anyone with minimal notions of swimming can take a surf lesson in Punta del Este and learn to glide on the waves.
For kids it’s super fun and besides doing sports are in full contact with nature.
Instructors have specialized equipment for learning and are usually local surfers, physical education teachers and/or lifeguards.
There are several schools on the following beaches: Los fingers, La olla, Zorba and also in La Barra and José Ignacio.
