Our first experience with surfing was simply fantastic. We were alone on Samara beach and had some great surf lessons from Paul who teached us pretty fast and with dedication how to surf. Would definitely recommend this school for any surf lessons.

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
