The house itself is clean and in excellent condition, there are all manner of non-surfing entertainments, and all of the food is...

My friend Chris and I took about 10 days in Lagos, and about 6 days staying and surfing with the Surf Experience team. The atmosphere is really relaxed but the group are also well organised. Waking up, driving to the beach, and surfing every morning surprisingly clears your head after a night out in Lagos. The surf instructors are a...

This was one of the more memorable holiday experiences I've ever had. The value you get for €100/day is off the charts. Rooms - clean and spacious, bathrooms are also quite large Surf - I had never surfed before this trip. This is the perfect venue for true beginners. The TSE staff is patient and encouraging. Food - daily rate...

I am an intermediate long boarder (ie catch a green wave without difficulty, can turn, ride and cross step) so this review comes from an intermediate's perspective. The novice surfers seemed very well looked after and I was there when Matt, a senior coach took them through video feedback. If you go as an intermediate or better you will need...
