Very nice! All equipment was good quality and the teacher was very nice and welcoming and knew what to do. Totally worth the money! Also, if booking after 24h before start, I suggest booking from their own website. We got in with our email receipt, but they had not received our booking yet since we booked it less than 24h before.

Amazing experience, there were 6-7 of us (3 first timers), and the coach was very attentive to everyone and gave good tips on how to surf. The beach used for the activity does not get high waves, and water would be up to our chest at all times, so being a great swimmer was not a prerequisite.

Had a pleasant first-time surfing session. We arrived at their office and gave our names to the receptionist. We were given wetsuits and shown where to change. Then, after a little waiting, we followed the instructor to the beach where we were taught some basics on the sand (maybe 15 min). We weren't too many, maybe 7-9, and the instructor tried to personally advise everyone. It wasn't very windy, so the waves were quite tiny, but I still had a great time and succeeded in riding waves all the way a couple times. Then, after roughly an hour, we headed back to their office/equipment storage. There was no shower anywhere and apparently the one near the beach had broken a couple of months ago and just hasn't been fixed. That was no disaster but it's good to acknowledge. All in all, an experience worth the money.
