    "Even if you're the clumsiest person in the world (you are not, because that's me), people at Wavy Surf Camp can't be any more patient, and you are sure to improve from the level you begin with (-1 in my case). Besides, the landscapes were beautiful and the vibes were really good. We felt as if we we're living in a big, international family. I would love to repeat!"
