What a day. Having never surfed before, we were in awe of the high waves of the Atlantic. However, we had the best coach ever. Tommy took so much time to bring us closer to this wonderful sport. Unfortunately, things didn't always work out and you often got off the board. No problem with Tommy, he went to everyone and explained exactly what was wrong. Shortly afterwards you hit a wave for the first time and “surfed” the first few meters. If only we had had more time we would have come back every day. Thank you Tommy for this unforgettable day. I will recommend this event to all my friends.

I really really enjoyed the activity, we were super lucky as we were just 2, my friend and I, so it ended up being a private lesson. The instructor Eloi is a super nice guy and he made a difference in our lesson. Really suggest the experience!

Everyone was very friendly and patient. You could progress at your own pace. The surf instructor explained it very well and was able to respond to everyone because the groups were separated.

It was a great experience - highly recommend! I will definitely book another class.

Really good coaches ☺️ We had a very nice lesson. Thanks a lot.
