Everything was excellent: the coaching, the resort, food, and transportation. Every detail was well thought through and the overall experience was much better than what I expected. My surfing improved drastically throughout the week and the coaching I received was a huge reason for the improvement. Thorough explanations were provided at all times and I always felt like my coach... More

Surf Simply is one of those truly special places. We all tend to spend hours reading reviews, looking at star ratings, websites, blogs and trying to find the perfect way to spend our limited time and budget.... This was my second time back. The difference this time is I attended solo which is easy to do here. Also, I have... More

If you have an inclination to improve yourself, Surf Simply will take you to new levels. The surf, the staff, the accomodations, the food, the drink, the detail, the teaching, the authentic approach, the culture, the video, and the memories will all stay with you. Ru and his team [thank you Coach SAM!] take a very personal interest in whatever... More

I learned more than I could possibly integrate during my short stay (two weeks). My surfing improved along with my confidence, and I came away with many new things to practice. The video coaching is a bit hard to watch at first (like hearing your own recorded singing voice), but it's incredibly valuable. I had the benefit of working with... More

What an amazing trip I had at Surf Simply! I had high expectations and was not let down. The coaches, staff, food and accommodations are amazing. I have been surfing for about 7 months and my skills have really improved from the video feedback. I know what my bad habits are now and I can continue to work on those... More
