This experience was one we will never forget. It was one thing to get to surf in another Country, but the graciousness of the hosts helped us feel more comfortable especially for each time we fell off the boards! I think the most inspiration came from the instruction “that you can’t get back on if you don’t fall off” which really helped encourage me to keep on trying and eventually be able to stand. It was an amazing experience and I’d do it again!

We had an amazing experience on this surfing adventure!! My brother and I had both never been before but left with a few successful attempts and a new love for all things surfing! Jane, our host, was absolutely fantastic! She was very friendly and personable, answered all questions, assisted in the water, made the most wonderful lunch, and was just overall the absolute best!! We are SO happy with the choice to go on this experience and would definitely do it again!
