In total, we were with 20 people, a couple of us with experience, and the rest had never been on a board before. Alex and his team provided enough guidance and supervision for a big group and they were... More

Great experience and memories from my first surfing lesson! Thanks to Wellington and Alex for the training, they did it, even though I was the only one on the beach. Though I did not achieve much that time, I will be back for more!
