Great class in small groups and away from the crowds!
Oct 2021
My son and I took the one-day surf class and had a great time! The instructor did a great job to explain the basics. After warm-up and short practice on land we were hitting the waves, and it did not take long before we could stand on the board :)
The class is done in small groups and away from the crowds.
The wind picked up quite a bit during the afternoon, but that just added to the experience and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Surf Canaries!

5 STARS!

We originally signed up for a two-day course just to experience surfing. However we loved it so much that we extended our course.

Danny is an amazing teacher and really passionate about surfing. I loved that the instructors caught a few waves when we were having a break, it really shows their love for surfing.

We had small classes of max 5 people, which is a perfect ratio where everyone could get enough attention from the instructor and personal feedback. The people that were progressing faster got fast tracked and could work on some more advanced stuff.

If you are worried about paying and not having proper waves to surf, don't worry. On our last day the surfing conditions were not that great, and they gave everyone the option to reschedule, cancel (with reimbursement) or just go out and see what happens. Surf Canaries really care about their customers and want to give them a great experience. I would highly, highly recommend surfing with them, even if it is just to hear everyone celebrate when you catch a wave!

I booked a one day surfing experience for my partner's birthday and it was definitely a great idea!
We both never surfed before, so the knowledge and help of Samir ( our instructor) was extremely important to make this a great experience.
Samir is an excellent instructor who can explain with simplicity the basics of surfing even to inexperienced people like us. He clearly loves his job and he transmit this excitement to you.

The school also gives you water and a snack and this shows how much they care about their customer.

100% will reccomend!

Lots of fun & improvement!
Dec 2020
We booked at the last minute and Danny was very accommodating. The group had some variations of ability but they managed that perfectly as the groups were small so you got plenty of 121 tuition and support.

We left having both improved and had a great time.

Thanks Danny!

Super fun day with Surf Canaries - the perfect balance between tailored guidance from the instructors and freedom to have fun on the waves! Everything was well organised with great communication from the start. We had both definitely improved by the end of the session and wish we could have come back for more! Thank you to our lovely instructor Danny you were the BEST

Great teachers, great experience!
I decided to go for this surf school because their website offers a lot of information about what's going to happen and when, what to bring with you, what to expect. It made a very good first impression and turns out it was a good decision to go with them. I was lucky enough to be in the water with 3 instructors of the team, Danny, Jordan & Samir. These guys are amazing!
Very passionate about surfing, good teachers, good vibes, a lot of fun. I had never done any surfing before but they're extremely skilled in teaching so I had my first moments of success very soon. I definitely want to go there again.
