Raphael is very nice and knowledgeable about surfing. Also, he's a genuine enthousiast of the sport. I asked to reschedule the class, but he asked to change my chedule so we could catch the only waves of the weekend. I'm so glad I did this, as you can tell they now a lot about the conditions here. Also, there's not a lot of theory involved, just some set training on the beach and straight into the waves. I would definitely come back again when I can!
