"incredible instructors and a beautiful surf house"
The best thing about these classes for me was that the instructors always gave honest and very useful feedback! Even though you are surfing in a group, each student was given quality one-on-one time throughout the class to improve their own surfing technique. All instructors were approachable and fun, which made classes even more enjoyable. The culture of quality learning and safety at this surf school was worth every cent.
The surf house itself was perfect! Fantastic healthy breakfasts to start your day, with options for vegans also. The house does not have too many beds, which means it is not crowded. It is a house of quality over quantity, which is rare for these types of accomodation. Beautiful communal areas which make you feel at home and to meet new people, but with enough chillout areas so you can find your own space to unwind after a big day. All the attention to detail in the decor and all the friendly staff made me feel right as home as soon as I arrived. Obrigada!
