My sons (10 and 14) and I took a surfing lesson at C&C and were very happy with the results. We also got to borrow their boards the rest of the week. Great deal, friendly and professional. For all ages.

C & C surf school isn't a hotel. Just surf lessons. I stayed at Villas Tangerine when I was in Samara. I suggest you check it out and see my review for it
