My husband and I are in our 50s so we weren't the most agile but Didier was patient with us until I finally rode a wave :) and also helped us get a board anytime we came back. When our daughter's lesson was delayed the next day due to surf conditions, he even walked down to our condo to let... More

Great choice if you want to learn surfing or improve your surfing skills. All the instructors are ISA certified and dedicated to support their students according to their individual skills. I only had two surf lessions one week before I came to Samara and was still a newbie. These two lessons were not to compare with the ones I had... More

My husband and I stumbled upon C & C Surf School while exploring Samara on our honeymoon. We walked in, met Didier, and promptly set up lessons with him for the following day. He was super friendly, knowledgeable, and was such a great teacher! He went out of his way to cater to our different experience level - and made... More

I had never been surfing before, and my surf instructor, Didier, had me riding waves in by the end of our lesson! The instructors are all certified by an American surf association, and are certified lifeguards so you know you're in good hands. The instruction I received was very professional: Didier covered safety basics, surfboard care, how to get up... More

Regarding surfing I was a first timer when booking the surf lesson at C&C Surf School. The guide (Marcelo) is ISA certified like all other guides are as well and he did a great job! Before heading into the water, there was a theoretical part in which he explained and showed all the basics (safety issues, waxing the board, things... More

I took a surf lesson with Marcelo. He was really great. He took special interest in making sure I was going to have success. This is the best surf school on Samara Beach. You are like family from the minute you stop by. C&C would be the main reason I would return to Samara. Get one lesson(approx $45-60) which is... More
