"Amazing surf camp"
Russo surf camp is an absolute treat. Situated in a piece of heaven, with stunning views and beautiful sunsets to enjoy every evening. The surf coaches are professional and excellent at helping you learn surfing. Very easy going and comfortable atmosphere at the camp.
The food was lovely, three course dinners every single day and bbq on Saturday. Buffet breakfast and packed lunches, so much good food.
One of the best bits, is the relaxed start of the day, with 10:30 being the departure time to the beach, we never felt the rush.
Great staff members, had the best time!!!
Thank you all at Russo Camp. Can’t wait to visit again!!

The surf camp offers a great view on the top of the hills, the staff is very friendly and the spot is good - not too crowded and with good waves.
I had an amazing time there, I met great people and I made progress in surf. I definitely recommend!

"First time surfcamper"
Food was excellent! I've also enjoyed staying in camp rather than the resort because it is in a beautiful garden.

If your looking for a great experience, this is the place.
Apart from the transport that didn't work as expected everything was more than perfect. The place, the teachers, the beach and especially the food. They provide you with everything you need for a great surf holiday. The atmosphere was great and Russo and Tonya are passionately working and helping you.
See you next year!

The best surf camp ever!! It's not just a surf experience but a life one.
I have been going overthere every year for the last 8 years and I will keep doing it. It feels like home. Russo and his staff are proffessionals adapted for every level. They teach you since the very beggining including not only technique but also safety rules very important at that point. If you are already an intermediate or an advanced surfer you will also enjoy with tips and tours to show you the best spots.
Great spot that will make you think you are in paradise!

End of May beginning of June 2017, we were total beginners and learned from scratch. Thanks to the teaching methods and the skills acquired we were able to stand on the board and surf the waves. At Russo's, the kindness of the staff, the fun we all had was out of this world. It is a fantastic experience for beginners and advanced surfers. If you wanna disconnect completely and focus on surfing and having an awesome time, there is no better place to be. Guys, we all miss you! Cannot wait to come back. Thank you for the wonderful time.
