What a day. Having never surfed before, we were in awe of the high waves of the Atlantic. However, we had the best coach ever. Tommy took so much time to bring us closer to this wonderful sport. Unfortunately, things didn't always work out and you often got off the board. No problem with Tommy, he went to everyone and explained exactly what was wrong. Shortly afterwards you hit a wave for the first time and “surfed” the first few meters. If only we had had more time we would have come back every day. Thank you Tommy for this unforgettable day. I will recommend this event to all my friends.

I really really enjoyed the activity, we were super lucky as we were just 2, my friend and I, so it ended up being a private lesson. The instructor Eloi is a super nice guy and he made a difference in our lesson. Really suggest the experience!

I’ve never done surfing before, so this was my first time. Instructor was really nice and helpful, thanks to that I was actually been able to catch a couple of waves. I really enjoyed the activity and would definitely recommend it.

This experience was good and worth the price. It promised a submarine experience and viewing of the artificially created reef and boat wrecks. I counted five different fish species, including a ray.

Really fun and cool instructor, explains everything very well and look after you.
