My boyfriend and me took a one-week private course, 6 hours of lesson, and we truly learned a lot. I was initially skeptical about taking only one hour per day, but believe me you will be exhausted at the end of it!Our instructor, Borja, was super professional, providing constant feedback on what we were doing wrong and what could be improved. Having lessons every day at the same time allowed us to "taste" the sea in very different conditions, and he explained us how to manage waves and currents. We even had two days of very big waves which I could not manage - I got constantly caught and wiped out by bigger sets - he has been super patient, made me feel safe when I started to panic and explained me how to deal with such situations. In general, staff was very professional, the surf school is super equipped, wet-suits and boards are in good conditions. We had taken surf lessons before in Portugal, where in most schools you feel like in a kind of tourist trap, but Pukas felt like a place where they train people for surf competitions.

Me and my girlfriend had surf lessons for 1 hour for 5 days. We had from 10-11, which was really nice except på the end of the lessons where there were definitively alot more people in the ocean. Our instructor Pablo (unknown if related to Pablo Escobar but probably) was very efficient with the time. He is really positive and outgoing and very easy to be with. We spent almost the entire hour every day in the ocean. The only thing we missed was more feedback on what could be improved, which could easily be done during the short walks to and from the beach. All in all great experience that made both me and my girlfriend interested in surfing.

Fun activity for the teens. We booked private lesson, for two days in a row, with Andrea! She was great with both of my kids. They loved the experience and loved Andrea.

My teenager and younger cousin used this surf school twice. The first day the young one had a private lesson with Danny. He was awesome and they booked him for a second day as well. My teenager had a great group lesson the first day but felt she needed a private to really improve. There was only one instructor available and they told us he understood English. However during the lesson he just pointed the board in the right direction but did not give any feedback. The girls who work the desks were very nice. My only suggestion would be to be clear on what you want and make sure the instructor will be appropriate for your needs.
