Me a surfer? I never would have thought I could ever do it. My first experience with Surfing Crete was three years ago being a true beginner. The instructors are so knowledgeable and helped me learn all the basics of surfing. The best part was the thrill of actually getting up and riding a wave with their help. They also offer stand up paddle and swim lessons for kids. Three years later, I go every summer multiple times to perfect my technique and learn more and more. It’s the best time in a wonderful location with wonderful people that truly want to see you succeed. If you are in chania, Crete it’s a must do!

As a beginner, I felt really welcomed and safe throughout the whole experience. Im a HongKong tourist in Crete for a week and me and sis early 20s booked a 1.5hr lesson on manawa.com. we were joined by 2 others from Belgium also for their 1st lesson and met our lady instructor Saavi. We all introduced ourselves and drove a 3 min drive to a nearby beach with calmer waters. Saavi was really easy going and warm with us throughout. She started us off with a safety lesson and then we are taught the surfs. With her help we were able to get on our feet and ride the waves! It is really really fun. Highly recommend to give it a go.
To note: Eat a nice meal maybe an hour b4 so u would have enough energy. Also do some light stretches to avoid any cramping during the activity, which i got haha. Oh and sunscreen. As Saavi said, Enjoy!

The whole team at Surfing Crete was wonderful and I am so happy to have had a lesson from Nik. It was the right mix of theory and practice and feel even in one lesson I will take away many insights that will help to improve my surfing moving forward. If you're in Chaina, don't pass up this wonderful opportunity to enjoy the waves, view and sea!

It was such an amazing experience! We were at Crete one month and surfed a couple of times per week. Alex and his team are amazing! We rented the boards and surfed by ourselves by they always helped us with advices. We also could texted them to WhatsApp to check the waves conditions. Thus, it was not necessary to come and waste our time in case of small or gigantic waves. The best school! Highly recommend.

My son spent an amazing day surfing with them . So many surf classes seem just more like childcare in water .. but these instructors really took time and care with the students .
My son took 2 lessons in the day we were there , each time concentrating on different techniques.
And to round off his magical day they even lent him a board so he could keep practising after …
Thankyou team for such a great day

I can totally recommend Surfing Crete for all watersport lovers out there! Amazing and fun couple of days with these guys. First surf trip was a full day in Falassarna with Alex and the second was a surf lesson with Nick in Chania region. Both were experienced and wonderfull teachers, always in a good mood. Just loved it! Very suitable waves also for beginners like me. I'll absolutely take more lessons with them when I return to Crete.
