At 61 years old, I got up the first time I was ever on a board thanks to my amazing instructor Naldin. He was fun, kind, patient and obviously an excellent teacher. The added bonus is that once you take a lesson you can go back and use the board for a few hours for the next few days so... More

We had a wonderful experience with C & C Surf School. There were 5 of us in our group - all first timers and our instructor was great! He was patient, fun and so helpful. The guys at the surf school were completely welcoming and insightful. We appreciated the continued pointers and tips when we would return to borrow boards... More

Hi everyone, If you are looking for a surf school in Samara, you just found it. These guys have been surfing their whole life and they are certified. Didier is by far the best surf teacher i've ever had ... nothing compare to the class i had in Indonesia. Not only you will stand up but Didier covered everything about... More

My sweet little family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) had a day lesson from Adolfo in June 2016. It was amazing, he was patient, clear and fun! We all got up and spent the rest of our week in Samara hanging out at the surf school and borrowing boards! We felt welcomed and everyone was kind and helpful. We... More

Didier did a great job teaching our 15 and 17 year old kids. One is athletic and one wasn't so sure she could do it - he managed to challenge the one and encourage the other in the same lesson. Both were surfing just fine by the end! Not only that but he taught them safety and how to wax... More

Marcello was an amazing teacher. I took a lesson with my 12-yr-old son on our first day in Samara. It was our second lesson ever (our first was in Hawaii a few years ago), but he was a much better teacher than we'd had in the past. We got up on several waves in our first lesson, then we kept...

We cannot express enough how much we loved our experience with C & C Surf School. We went to Samara for 3 days to learn how to surf and chose a hotel downtown. The Surf School was 1 minute away from the hotel. While waiting for the waves to be at a beginner's level for my girlfriend and myself, the... More

Great experience with Didier at C&C! He taught our three kids - ages 7, 10, & 12. They learned so much and had a blast! He did such a great job teaching the land portion that they were up on their boards almost as soon as they got in the water. Being able to use the boards for the rest... More
