"Best 10 days of my 3 week trip to Hawaii"
I loved the fact that Raul and Daniel are two friends from Ecuador who both have a passion for surfing and Oahu/Hawaii. The combination of their knowlegde about the Island, history and sharing their own favorite places/ stories with surfing lessons and having fun is unique. The minute I arrived I felt at home. The two girls, AJ and Mariel, working at the camp were amazing and everything was organised so well! I cannot describe in words how much I enjoyed my time at the camp. Feels like I made new friends so quickly and hope to see all of them again.

"Sweet and funny "ohana""
Mi spiace ma voglio esprimermi in italiano ora! Riesco meglio! La realtà è che non ho davvero parole per esprimere quanto bene sono stata con questi ragazzi! Ci hanno portato su e giù ad est e ad ovest di tutta quanta oahu per permetterci si vedere il tutte le bellezze di quest'isola! Dalle cascate immerse nel verde dell'entroterra , alle spiagge dorate e al blu dell'acqua in cui abbiamo surfato tutti insieme come se fossimo amici da sempre. Voglio assolutamente raccomandare a tutti il patasudaka team perché se lo meritano! Ragazzi semplici,amanti del mare e del divertimento che però mantengono una grande professionalità e serietà per organizzare nel migliore dei modi le nostre giornate e non farci perdere nessun particolare!
Grazie grazie grazie a tutti! Ed in particolare Raul per la grande energia, Aj per la dolcezza e la simpatia da amica di sempre, e Daniel per la sua vivida passione per il surf e per le preziosissime nozioni tecniche che ci ha dato (p.s. grazie anche per il merengue del mio compleanno! ;) )
Per finire, mi ripeto, è stato tutto esattamente come io aspettavo il mio surfcamp da sogno alla hawaii.. ma forse anche di più!!

"More than a surf camp"
It was a perfect balance between surfing with multiple instructors and video analysis and other activities like exploring the island of Oahu, snorkeling with turtles, hiking, cliff jumping, paddle boarding etc

"Awesome Surf Trip by Pata Sudaka - Experience of a lifetime"
It was the best trip of my life. I liked the entire crew of Pata Sudaka who were very friendly, hospitable and energetic human beings. I was feeling like I knew them since childhood. They were like family. The entire trip starting from when we got down the airport to the time we were leaving was very well structured.
We were shown videos of our surfing everyday to show us how we can improve our surfing and this helped a lot. I liked the food cooked by Daniel. This was much better than the best restaurants of the world.
We did Yoga, Snorkeling, Hiking, Standing Paddleboat and Island tour along with surfing. The environment in the surf camp was very pleasant and this was because of the awesome crew of Pata Sudaka.
I'll miss Pata Sudaka and its entire team.
