My teenage daughter (13) and teenage boy (15) took their first surfing leson at C & C Surf School and it was a great experience. Samara Beach is a safe place to learn to surf and just an awesome place in general. They got top notch instruction and were able to take some waves on their first time out. We... More

My son and I (16 & 49) took a lesson with Marcello today. He explained everything well and made sure we had proper technique. All in all a great lesson. My younger son (14) is going back tomorrow to take a lesson. I can not recommend them highly enough. Personable and experienced and they are very patient with complete beginners.

I recently traveled to C & C surf school with a group of teenagers looking to learn to surf. The instructors were absolutely fantastic and recognized who were beginners and who were a bit more experienced. Their teachings were very thorough and the guys were awesome. I personally had Marcelo as my instructor and he was so passionate about teaching... More

We spent a week learning to surf with the C&C crew. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our lesson with Didier was very helpful and we were all catching waves in no time. He is passionate and makes safety and learning proper technique a priority. If you want to learn to surf, C&C is by far your best... More

My instructor Didier was a knowledgeable and friendly guy and I could tell he cared about the quality of my first surfing lesson. I had never surfed before and took a lesson at C&C and I was able to get up on my first wave due to Didier's instruction. He stayed out with the group for at least 2 hours... More

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
