Dressel Surf Adventure Punta Cana
Dressel Surf Adventure is a surfing school where both children and adults who want to discover the art of surfing can learn the basics, as well as advanced surfers who enjoy the surfing experience.
Located on the right hand side in Playa Macao, the school's lessons are designed for students of all levels, from novice to seasoned surfer. Whether you are a local resident or tourist in the area of Bavaro - Punta Cana, you will not be in better hands if you like surfing.
One of the two owners is Cristian Maffione, an Italian who has an extensive background in water sport activities. Tired of looking at surfing magazines, he moved to the Canary Islands when he was 18, to pursue his passion: windsurfing. He remained in the Canary Islands for four and a half years learning radical windsurfing jumps and maneuvers. Later he worked in the tourism industry in Ireland, Tunisia, Egypt, and the Dominican Republic until he discovered the joy of diving. In Mexico he became a diving instructor and eventually returned to the Dominican Republic to work in diving.
On a trip between Panama and Costa Rica he rediscovered his love of surfing and completely fell in love with the Pacific Ocean. Once back in the Dominican Republic he decided to find a place in the Bavaro-Punta Cana area and it was there in 2008 that he discovered Macao beach, known for surfing because of its strong ocean waves.
Currently he ensures the quality of the ten Dressel Divers's Centers located in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Galápagos, as well as training PADI Instructors.
Cristian is also a promoter of environmental protection by supporting Project Aware, an association recognized worldwide for its efforts in safeguarding the planet. On February 28, 2010, he was the main promoter of the first true Macao beach cleaning with more than 250 participants and with collaboration from Project Aware.
Dressel Surf Adventure is an ecological based organization, involved with environmental protection including daily garbage collection in Macao beach area.
