Ruwan was an amazing surf teacher and helpt me a lot during my first week of surfing. He is very professional, patient and eager to help me catch and stand my first waves. Thanks Ruwan, I had a blast! :-)

처음으로 서핑레슨을 루완하고 했습니다. 물을 무서워하고 해본적이없어서 첫날부터 보드에서 일어설수있을지 몰랐는데, 렛슨 첫날 일어날수있었습니다. 선생님이 작은 파도 골라서 보내주시고, 안전하게 하는 팁과, 뭐를 잘했는지 잘못했는지 지적해줍니다. 더 시간이 있었다면 더 오래 배워서 다른 테크닉도 익히고 싶은데 시간이없어서 아쉽습니다. 선생님 시간약속 잘 지키셨구요, 지금 시즌이 아니라서...More

We took a 1.5 hour lesson from Rowan. It was our first time surfing and it went pretty good. Rowan explains everything clear, simple and fast which enables you to try yourself within half an hour. I would highly recommend Rowan!

Ruwan是一个很耐心体贴的老师。我不会游泳,怕水,但试了第一天的课之后顺利在板上站起,完全被冲浪吸引了,连续3天上了他的课,能稍稍转弯。价格很合理,我非常推荐,我下次再来时会继续找他教。另外Ruwan说曾经有过经验顺利教过不会英语的中国游客。 Ruwan gives good surfing lessons, he's patient and caring. I don't know how to swim, but I manage to surf a bit during my 3 lessons with him, I felt the joy of surfing and will definitely continue my surfing lesson with the next...More
