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!

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

we had a great time. Great surf instructor and good spot for beginners where you learn to surf quickly

It was an amazing experience! Perfect weather, waves and great instructor.

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