Surfing with Raven Surf School was a great experience ! Everything was well organized, easy to understand and also price and equipment were really good. Teachers were patient and competent and my 14-years-old daughter had a wonderful time with them, even if the weather was so rainy and cold!

What a fabulous introduction to a new sport! Much to my surprise, surfing has been the highlight of my holiday and was a perfect activity to do as a family. I thought the instructors might wonder why someone of my age was bothering to try, but not at all, all ages and abilities were made to feel equally welcome. The... More

All the coaches were very attentive and took care of everybody in the respective groups. Everybody was really serious about security issues including a good... More

At first I was not really sure if I should take surfing lessons but in the end it was the best decision of the vacation. At Raven Surf School we learned how to catch a wave, how to stand up, how to keep standing, how to surf curves and how to switch positions on the board in just five days.... More
