This surf school is top notch. All the staff were friendly, helpful and eager to share local knowledge (where to get great coffee, accommodation options, local yoga instructors, where to buy a replacement wetsuit...) and the high spec equipment was in great condition (this is not the case with many surf schools). A special mention goes to Hugo, who was... More

Hugo was a great instructor talking about technic but also about the spirit of that sport. Lessons were given in beautiful places. Felt always in security with the kids. Would definitely recommend.

Great team who all really know their stuff. Their yoga/surf combo is ideal. Always fresh and motivated, they will lead (not push) you to achieve your true potential. All the team were patient, helpful, fun and totally in tune with the beach/weather conditions. These are genuinely inspiring people. .

We were staying at the Memmo Hotel and I signed up around 930am day of to leave at 10 no problem. We drove our own car over to the beautiful beach that kind of looked... More
