This is a great place to learn how to surf. The waves are never-ending and cater easily to surfers of any level. The instructor was able and spoke good English.

Enrique is a great surf teacher and always kept me motivated and excited even if I took some tumbles in the waves, it was always fun. His energy is infectious and he is super professional and accommodating with changing schedules/weather.
