Booked a day of surfing with a friend. The surf teacher was super enthusiastic and sympathetic. He taught clearly and took the time for everyone. I am a slightly more experienced surfer myself, but he also adapted the teaching material to that. Learned a lot again. We were picked up at 9am and dropped off at the hotel at 1pm. This was long enough for the beginners, I would have liked even longer. All in all we had a lovely morning!

We did not use the transport, so I cannot give a rating on this. Basically, of course, the whole thing is very dependent on the actually existing waves. We were lucky so we had great fun too and would definitely recommend it. Just don't expect to be able to surf properly after the one-day course. For us it worked to a certain extent at the end of the 2nd day (booked separately on site).

Couldn’t find the location at first but when I did I had no problems to start the course. Very helpful staff and good equipment. Would definitely repeat when I go back to Gran Canaria

Super arranged. Top guidance. As a newby myself from the start I was made to feel comfortable. Recommended!

Really good course and cool surfers leading the course. Was very fun!
