Loved these guys. Great price and had a blast with the team. Walked down to Playa De Somo for a great early morning lesson. I am an "Ok Surfer" nothing to brag about. The inst

uctor was great about helping me with my current form and showing me better ways to do things! While teaching me Spanish for surfers! Sticker on my laptop and the hoodie I bought in the store is one of my favorites. Surf shop is an awesome layout and fun to walk around!

Great experience! I spent 2 weeks with the school. I took part in the surfcamp, sleeping in the tent (provided by the school), attending 2 classes per day. Instructurs are rea

ly great (Andrea was amazing, but also Martin), they follow you and help you in correcting your posture. In general, the school is super well organized. Really a great experience, I will definitly come back to learn more about surf

Absolute Rip-off!!! Be careful people!!!! I made a reservation for a nice surf house nearby and they gave me the keys for a horrible hotel room in a completely different hote

. When I went back to the Shop to ask what was going on, they told me the surf house was booked out. After I asked for my money, the pretended to call the surfhouse and said, that I´m lucky because there was a cancellation. When I arrived at the surfhouse (which is lovely and run by a lovely lady) only 3 of the 8 rooms were booked!! Ich checked their reviews on different medias and saw, that this had happened to other people as well. Stay away from them if you dont want to get ripped off!
