Addicted!

This was our first time surfing and we loooooove it! The sea was a bit rough that day but András could not have been more patient with us. We all sucked but he was so attentive and took the time to explain how the waves and current work. We had a blast and appreciate the incredible experience!

We did a beginner surfing course for only one day and loved it! It was very well planned, we were 8 people and 2 instructors and they took very good care of us. We drove half an hour to the beach which was very well selected for beginners. We got a short lesson on what to do and were then able to practice in the water. The instructors always gave you tips on what to do better and helped you out very well. We also got a good lunch and were taken care of perfectly throughout the lesson! Would defeinetely book here again!!!!
