"Super relaxed and warmth atmosphere and nice surfing "

For me it was a wonderful holiday at Russo Surf Camp. The nature around your camp, the surfing lessons and the warmth atmosphere in the camp were awesome!

All the guests and the staff had a good time together! :)

The surfing lessons were well structured and Hannah and Igor did a great job, always good explanations and motivation.

The dinner was always very tasty and everybody in the team always had a smile on their face. :)

Keep up the good work :) !!

"UNFORGETTABLE!!! 🏄🏼‍♀️🤙🏽❤️"

I cried when I left. Tonya & Russo are amazing hosts who treat you like family. I traveled alone and made friends from all over the world. It was the perfect mix of night time fun and day time learning. By the end of the week I could stand on the board with confidence, and with a big smile on my face! I will definitely be back soon. I ❤️ my Russo Surf Camp family !!!!!

"Intense week of surf and yoga"

Surf teachers are very good and lot of time was spent on the beach. Yoga is build around the main focus of surfing. The yoga techer adabts the program daily depending how your body is feeling. Also, beautiful location for the resort!

A great friendly place to stay. The guest house is like a home from home with excellent hospitality and home cooked fresh food. A great bunch of people running the guest house, looking after us and conducting the surfing lessons. Very competent and patient surfing instructors who were funny and kind. I met some great people and had a lot of fun- I can see why people return year after year! Highly recommended to get away from it all- a perfect escape! I will be back! Thank you Russo camp!

"A lovely stay and an amazing experience "

The instructors were passionate and well versed. From the beginning and beyond I felt like a part of their family. Food, location, and course was better than I had imagined. I would without a doubt recommend Russo Surf Camp to anyone who is ready for an adventure and a lifelong memory!

"Great instructors, great location , good food"

I liked that the camp is located in quite a remote area in nature. 35min walk to the closest beach or 5min drive. Food was good for breakfast and dinners. Instructors were on point and good teachers that focus on everyone well :). Rooms are nice and good for detoxing each day ,

"This is my surfboard and this is for fun!"

We are a family of 4, Mum, Dad with very little surfing experience and our son,14 and daughter 11 have had some experience. None of us have ever had surf lessons. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived, a part of the Russo surf family no less.

The accomodation and dining arrangements were very good indeed and catered for any diet, we eat all but other meals where available if the main wasn't suitable. Nothing was too much trouble for Madara, Maria and we can't thank them and others in the house enough.

The surf instructors from the youngest, 17/18 to the oldest...Louis ;-) throughly explained everything and demonstrated all so there was no confusion on how we should complete each of the steps. We spent the week with Hannah who had a lot of time for all and helped us reach a fair beginners level, our son and daughter fairing lots better than Mum and Dad..!

We never stopped smiling, having a great time for the whole week.

"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!!

"Great surfcamp"

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.

"Great Surfcamp"

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!
