Me and my girlfriend had a fantastic day surfing with these guys! It was the first time either of us had ever surfed and we both stood up. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and patient :) even know we was in a group we felt the instructors payed a lot of attention to us individually, giving my girlfriend extra help to stand up :)

Would definitely recomend this surf school to everyone, we are backpackers and found it very easy to arrange etc.

Thanks for a great day guys!

“Full class”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

This was the 2nd time I had ever surfed, both being lessons. Class I feel was too full for the amount of instructors as everyone was a beginner. They weren't very attentive to individual needs and steps were a little rushed to fit it all in the time frame. Instructors were friendly however and if you did happen to be a natural, you were pushed harder. This school is for people who are naturally good and not for people who will need extra help.

“Guaranteed to stand!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

My friend and I managed to snag a Groupon to this place, so we got 2 hours of surf school and one hour board hire! It was the perfect amount of time. They teach you how to surf the white water, which is perfect for beginners. If you can't manage to stand on your own, they make sure to hold the board for you and give you at least one good experience. I found the lessons extremely helpful, even though I'd been surfing a few times in my life. The extra hour was amazing so that we could get a handle on surfing without the rest of the class there. By the end we were tired! I highly recommend!

“Impatient instructors”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

They gave me a huge and heavy board even though I'm really short and slim. I had to carry it for 15 minutes so by the time we reached the shore I was already tired. I found out that the instructors were cranky and rude!
