Fantastic instructors who gave meaningful and clear theoretical instructions. They supported and encouraged everyone out in the water in well-divided groups. Very challenging and fun activity to do together that gave us a richer experience.

I’ve never done surfing before, so this was my first time. Instructor was really nice and helpful, thanks to that I was actually been able to catch a couple of waves. I really enjoyed the activity and would definitely recommend it.

This experience was good and worth the price. It promised a submarine experience and viewing of the artificially created reef and boat wrecks. I counted five different fish species, including a ray.

Super great course with funny trainers, was a lot of fun. The surf school can only be recommended

Really fun and cool instructor, explains everything very well and look after you.
