I have just returned after three days of surfing with Paddy and Dan. Great instructors, from zero I learned a lot and would definitely recommend the guys to anybody thinking of learning to surf. Interesting to note that most of my group had been with the school before which says it all, so all I have to do now is... More

We visited as a mixed group with varying abilities, and couldn't have been more impressed. Tim and his son Jamie, along with Paddy and Dan the instructors were amazing. They ran us through a full warm up and safety briefing every day, the boards were immaculate and they always had a variety for us to try out. The accommodation was... More

Just felt compelled to write a quick review about this surf school. I went as a solo traveler over St Patrick's weekend (March 17th 2015), I was made very welcome, had great fun and most importantly had great tuition from Tim and the gang. I was slotted in with a good bunch of people from all over Europe. I went... More

Last week we were at Club La Santa for a trainingcamp. A total of 16 swimmers and 2 coaches, looking for some fun on our day off. And we found it!! Did a complete day of surfing, on which almost everyone rode one or more waves all the way to the beach. 7 of us decided the day after we... More

About 175 "Excellent" ratings says it all! Tim's school is probably one of the best surf schools you will find on this planet. He and his teachers know almost everything about surfing. That's why I am even not sure if I'am here the seventh or eight time...

It's a very nice surfschool! Tim is like a walking encyclopedia on everything you'd like to know about surf and he taught his instructors well. In one week I learned a lot about technique, staying fit 4 surf, which gear to use and how to overcome my fear of big waves ;) The appartment was really nice. ThX a million... More

Second time here for me. I 've surfed for a while but don't get in the water as often as I'd like so it's great for me to get some coaching and tips. They always manage to give individual attention for different levels of ability. Really nice conditions this time around. I had been following a training schedule that Tim... More

Tim has phenomenal knowledge of his sport in every aspect and he is committed to building it as one for pros and amateurs alike. We came for a course in Feb 2015, unwittingly during the worst winter of storms to hit the island in 20 years (check the forecasts before you go!). So the usual currents and rips as well... More
