The group was a good size, the guides Dan & Dan were very nice, funny and helpful. They conveyed perfectly what was important, left room for questions that arose and conveyed zero pressure. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and I felt comfortable and safe. They were super nice and were happy with everyone for their first wave. Absolutely recommended for beginners!

I would like to suggest Let's Go Surfing as everything went well, location is close to the beach and they are nice and friendly. My son has done 2 sessions and I can say that there was a big difference because of the coach, coach John is very very special and is taking care as much as he can with a big smile on his face, he is very awesome and he was able to gave to his session a very high value, I cannot say the same for the day after but also the day after was ok.

Brilliant fun and great experience

We had so much fun doing the surf lesson. Alex our instructor was so patient with us and a brilliant teacher. He made us feel very comfortable in the water, he was very friendly and we had a brilliant laugh during the lesson. I'd highly recommend this activity. It was really good value for money considering how much you pack into the few hours and how much you learn.
