Very friendly staff and they were really helpful. They have cupboards to leave your stuff while you go surfing. I rented a surfbord a couple of times and the prices were the best in town.

The surf instructors were very patient and kind. I ended up using them for a week because being out there with them - just made me better. Went by myself and felt totally comfortable. They were really great about setting lessons around the waves.

Broke my GoPro case in my trip through Central America and this was the only place to have GoPros and also accessories. They also offer a wide variety of surfing gear so makes it nice for it all in one place.
