First time surfing

Well placed, very friendly and cheerful instructors. It is better to take lessons in the morning while are no so many people in the ocean.

Ratios of staff to pupils good; 3:13... More

Lessons for whole family was highlight of our trip to Tenerife. Jose's staff and hospitality were delightful. Kristine had us all riding the waves by the second lesson.
