The whole family enjoyed it, some of us made more progress than others(!) but we didn't feel under pressure and the whole lesson was fun. Quality of equipment was excellent too. If we... More

Three of us rented boards and wetsuits here. The wetsuits were of excellent quality, we couldn't feel the cold at all while surfing! We were given information about hazards on the beach and surfing tips prior to heading down. There was the option to stay for an extra hour for only 5 euro, which we did because the suits were...

We both had never been surfing before and didn't know what to expect but ended up having a great time. The instructor was great and thought us all the basics. He helped us throughout the entire hour and had a lot of patience. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
