There are surf schools and board rental along Escambron Beach and Puerto de Tierra. La Ocho Surf Shop is one place.  Spectrum Surf School is another.  Taxi ride from cruise piers.  I doubt you would have time to drive to Rincon.

Within that window your choices are, from west (closest to the cruise ship piers) to east:


La Ocho - 5 minutes from piers. Reef break, right usually. As crewsweeper mentioned, La Ocho Surf Shop is the only surf shop nearby.

La Punta - 10 minutes from piers. Behind the Ashford Community Hospital in Condado.  No facilities or surf shops in this area.  

Aviones - 20 - 25 minutes from piers, just east of the SJU airport. Shore break. Scant facilities here, mainly drink and food kiosks. Be careful - scant cell phone signal in this area so it might be impossible to hail an Uber from here. Have your return prearranged.

La Pared - 40 minutes from San Juan in the town of Luquillo. Shore break. This might be your best bet if you're not coming down with your own boards.  There's an outfit here with a van that gives surf lessons and rents boards.  Since it is the only one there, I'll take a chance of being scolded by the mods as a local and mention the name, which is pretty obvious. Surfing Puerto Rico. 


Hope this helps.
