I had a great time with the staff of Canary Wave, from the pickup to the safety instructions and they took a lot of pictures of our surfing attempts and successes! The instructors where really good, the activity depends off course by the quantity of waves, we had to wait few times for the good ones but at the end we had a great morning and also managed to surf after not too many attempts. One advice is to get water shoes because underneath the water there are numerous rocks (at least in the lighthouse area in Maspolamas where we where) that can be really annoying

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).

I would have liked a little more time in the water ... of the 4 hours we weren't two in the water, but maybe it was also because the waves were just very flat today and therefore the conditions were not ideal. The instructions were okay so far, sometimes a bit difficult to hear ... but all in all a successful course
