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

Excellent surfschool! They say you get 1,5hrs of surf lessons, but actually you get much more! First day 2 hours, second day recap, warming up and again an hour of instructions which provides you enough info to continue practicing the next 5 days (rental board included for those days). Marcello is a friendly guy, good teacher, excellent english and provides... More

I had an amazing time learning to surf with Didier. He made sure that all the basics are covered and now I feel confident enough to check the equipment and start to catch the waves on my own. His coaching was very helpful and I managed to stand up and ride small waves very quickly. As the high tide came... More

My two kids (11 & 13) and I did a learn to surf lesson with C&C and in just a couple hours they had all three of us catching waves and surfing independently. Our instructor (Didier) did a phenomenal job of simplifying the steps and training us to consistently follow the techniques learned. Not only was the instruction top notch,... More

We had a group of five young people, ages 5-16 and Didier did a great job with all of them! Thank you so much. Didier set high expectations for them and was very committed to helping them reach those expectations. C&C is a very professional surf school and we felt very comfortable and confident with all of the staff. My... More

Neither my boyfriend or I had ever surfed before and decided to try C&C. Didier was great at explaining everything and made sure we understood safety protocol before taking us in the water. Once in, he didn't stop until everyone made it up at least once. He had a great, positive attitude that helped make it a successful lesson. Also... More

The staff at C&C is knowledgeable and friendly. They did everything to make our experience a great time. We brought in a high school group of mostly first time surfers. Their instruction was thorough with great attention to safety and technique. Through their gentle guidance everyone of us was able to surf and enjoy the morning. I was particularly impressed...
