Great experience

Was a great experience for our kids. Cian was an excellent coach and managed the group well. Only recommendation would be to have the surfboards transported right to beach by trailer. Thanks so much for a wonderful day out surfing. Will definitely recommend!!

Great first experience!

Booking was easy and clear. Communication by mailing was perfect and friendly, i really appreciated the question if i prefered the original booking (i would have been the only adult in that class) of i could take the lesson in the afternoon. The instructor was amazing! Kian was very helpfun, funny and clear. He kept an eye on everybody and despite the "heavy" waves and wind i felt very safe. I really enjoyed my first experience in amazing surroundings! Would reccomend!
