As a SUP coach I was really looking forward to getting some surfing action under my belt - not only did I learn a lot about surfing, but also came away really impressed with their coaching skills and general approach to the sport.

Been recommended this surfschool and it was so worth it! Tim Jones (owner) is a vessel of knowledge, heart, dedication and experience.The lightness, love and spiritedness he and his team have for surf is so infectious. I feel they absolutely know what they're doing, talking about and having lived it themselves. I felt safe, supported in many ways, encouraging me... More

Had a fantastic week at the surf school. The accommodation has everything you need and is only a 5 minute walk from the beach, based in a very friendly village with excellent bars and restaurants . We had 5 days at the surf school and we learnt something new every day. Our group being a great mix of ages 20's... More

I booked a 3 day surf school, for my first time surfing. I was very nervous at first surfing, but all the instructors (Tim, Jamie, Pat, and Dan) were very supportive and explained the concepts very clearly... so I quit being nervous as soon as I stepped in the water. I liked the theoretical parts of the course as well:... More

Due to a storm I could only do a 1-day course instead of 3-day course. Nonetheless I really enjoyed that day. The group was small (5 students) and we had 2 instructors. Both instructors were very calm, helpful and I felt absolutey safe at all times. For me it was the first time I ever surfed and I found it... More

A very professionally run surf school that covers all abilities from novice to international competition level. I attended a 3 day course. The instructors are top notch, they analyze, encourage and explain in detail in order to help you progress. This is all done with a strong emphasis on safety. I learned a huge amount in the 3 days and... More

We booked on a five day beginner's surf course after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The instructors - Tim, Jamie, Paddy and Dan were great and keen to help us progress (even when we had some pretty bad weather). They gave us a really good grounding in the basic technique which helped to get us standing on the board quickly.... More

I usually never bother to write reviews but this was very well deserving of one. Everything was extremely easy from the booking to payment, the pick up from our hotel each day on a different part of the island, the included lunch, the day break in between (which was very appreciated!), the fun and friendly staff and the owner who...
