Great time
Ben_F, Dec 2022
Being able to spend sometime learning to surf (would have preferred a little longer) and getting out in the water was amazing. The waves were perfect for an novice like me and my wife. Definitely recommend drinking lots of water (not ocean water) before going and being in somewhat decent physical shape. Ari and his crew were great, but would have loved to have received some action photos. Would definitely do this again but would change the water and picture dilemmas.
Do it!

Great experience! Ari was an awesome teacher, I did not expect to be able to stand up on the surf on my first lesson but I could thanks to him! Extremely recommend!
Beginners Can Surf Too!

Our instructor was great! My partner and I have never surfed and we were both able to get up on the board multiple times! Appreciated the positivity and encouragement. Be sure to bring water for afterwards. Our instructor was kind enough to let us store our belongings in his vehicle as well.
Amazing Surf Experience

So fun!

The instructors were all great and worked so well with all the ages of our family from 7 years old up to 46. Will definitely book again when visiting Puerto Escondido again!
