A great experience if you want to go surfing for the first time! Marco is very friendly and picked me up at the metro station on time, the beach is beautiful and the waves were perfect for beginners. Marco taught me a lot in a short time and was very patient, so I quickly became more confident. Another plus, lots of photos and videos were taken so you have a great memory. It was great fun and I would book it again at any time! Thanks !! ❤️

10/5 stars! The beach where the lesson took place had really nice waves for beginners (and more advanced surfers too) and Marco and Eric are absolutely fabulous trainers!! They were super friendly, knowledgeable and gave very valuable tips and advice throughout the whole session. Another plus is the small group size, which allows the trainers to help everyone catch some waves. We were even allowed to lend the boards and stay at the beach a bit longer with some more advanced surfers after the session had ended. We had an awesome day and I can only fully recommend to take this lesson!
