All around excellent place. Diddier was so grounded, well spoken, friendly and just an overall amazing instructor. Since the waves weren't that big for my first lesson, he invited me again to come for another hour at no charge.

Marcello took my children out for two hours and was so patient and willing to help them thru every step. They had a blast and I would recommend using C&C as when it comes to teaching surfing patience is a must and tMarcello had it for sure. They loved it so much they wanted to go for a second day.

Didier was very patient and balanced teaching with doing in a way that kept my two very different teens engaged. Both were up and riding minutes after we hit the surf and had a great time. Also, a great location in the heart of Samara Beach. If u want to learn, have kids that need to learn and/or need a... More

My son took a lesson at C & C with Didier on our recent trip to Costa Rica. Didier was so friendly, easy going, knowledgeable, and very professional. My son really liked the instructor, and enjoyed the lesson and I appreciated the time Didier took with him to teach before he even went in the water. He got lots of... More

3 kids (10-12) and I took surf lessons at C&C with Didier. Professional, focus on safety, but also made it fun and easy for everyone to have a successful experience. So nice that you can use the boards for several days after your lesson -- Didier kept checking in with more help & tips. Highly recommend!

I booked my surf lesson for the next day in the morning and followed by an explanation and practice in the sand we were taken to the water. Three or max 4 students per teacher and feedback was always given after each wave we caught allowing us to improve at each step. The price paid for the lesson allows you... More

My son did a surf lesson here with Dedier and had a great time. Dedier was passionate about what he taught and clearly wants others to understand and appreciate the sport. The other great part is that once you pay $40 for the lesson, you can use the boards for the next 5 days to practice to your heart's content.

My son and and wife took private lessons and loved them. Both had never surfed before and both were standing and riding in no time. The staff took the time to not only teach them how to surf but also stressed safety in the water and out. With the lessons you get 5 days of additional board usage. My daughter... More

My friend and I had our first surf lesson here. Didier, our instructor was great. He emphasized safety and fun and with his teaching we stood up on our first few waves. By the end of our lesson we were able to catch waves on our own. Great experience! I can't wait to surf again!!

This was an excellent experience with a great instructor. Didier was our guide through a nearly 2-hour out-of-water detailed lesson. After that, he went into the water with all of us and helped us ride our first waves! After approximately an hour of in-water instruction, Didier left us to enjoy the waves on our own. Not only did he do... More
