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

Surf Simply is one of my favourite vacation and surfing spots. The entire staff rocks! Everyone goes out of their way make sure you have the best experience in the water, at the resort, and in town. All the coaches are extremely helpful and happy! I have been fortunate to be coached by both Jessie and Harry. They are simply... 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

Surf simply does a very good job of breaking down surfing into a science. Learning to surf as an adult seems to be a unnatural skill at least for me. I was looking for a surf camp/coach that could teach in a step by step manner and not just yell paddle, paddle, paddle. Surf simply has done just that. I... More

Second time with my family from New England to Surf Simply even more fun than the first!! After breaking down the sport and finding our weaknesses the first time around, we found ourselves much improved and enjoying Surf Simply even more this time. Combining consistent waves and a sandy bottom with great coaching, excellent food and amenities, and a great... More

Surf Simply probably needs another great review the way a golf ball needs another dimple. However, since I can't stop raving about my recent stay there, I'll do everyone (at least my friends) a favor and write my thoughts here so I can get it out of my system. This place is hard to define. It's a school--because you are... More

My sister and brother-in-law have been to Surf Simply multiple times and highly recommended it to me when I was deciding on a vacation destination. So I went for my first time ever this August - and I will definitely be a return guest! Coming to the resort, I was a beginner's level surfer never having surfed a day in... More

I just returned from my 3rd trip to Surf Simply. My only opportunity to go surfing is when I am at Surf Simply. The experience I had on this trip was fantastic. The progress I am made on the waves exceeded my expectations. As usual, the accomodations were very comfortable. The food at the resort and the restaurants were delicious.... More
