"We took surf lessons at Homegrown for three days. Even though we went to the same beach three times in a row (El Cotillo), we really enjoyed the lessons. Riccardo from Homegrown is a funny guy and took good care of its class. Definitely recommend it and come back."
"Manu picked up myself and my two boys aged six and eght and drove us to Cotillo. Very friendly and took complete care of the boys whilst i went out for a surf with some nice guys in the water. the tuition was very encouraging and he kept the boys engaged for the lesson. the boards were foam boards so not much to say here and wet suits kept the sun off us. the water was so warm compared to the west coast of ireland."
"I didn't know what to expect, but it was better than I could have thought! Casa Hilda has this relaxed atmosphere with like-minded people. Everybody comes for surfing which makes it great to meet new surfer friends. The grouping is perfect to surf with people from the same level. The groups are small and there is a lot of personal attention. The teachers are very friendly and well qualified. My teacher was Matteo. Besides him being happy every day and very funny, he made me improving my skills from the first day. I will definitely come back to Homegrown!"
"Took the family away, not quite sure what to expect. We were all very pleased with the time we had and will be definitely be going back as soon as.The staff (bunch of nutters),very helpfull, full of fun, and very professional. My two teenage children had a fantastic time and both can now stand and surf. We all joined in the surfing so the age range was from 58 to 14. We all had a fantastic time we will never forget, even the wife enjoyed it. Well done the homegrown chaps."
