They ensure that everyone is participating and go out of their way to help you. The food, which is included, is pretty tasty, especially considering how many people they have to cook...

You can chill, play games or go to the beach in between the surf lessons. The instructors are really good and the food is delicious! Everything is really well organized. Would go back...

    Where to begin? It was amazing. I went alone and was their from the 21st to the 25th of Nov, 2016. The staff are fun, friendly, approachable, join in with your games and jokes, and also (as expected) are brilliant surfers who clearly are in love with their jobs and in love with the sport! It's refreshing to be taught...

    Friendly staff, chill vibes, good equipment, great beginner's experience. There could have been a bit more supervision and one-on-one training --unless you're about doing it all by yourself. I enjoyed it!
