Great experience with Didier at C&C! He taught our three kids - ages 7, 10, & 12. They learned so much and had a blast! He did such a great job teaching the land portion that they were up on their boards almost as soon as they got in the water. Being able to use the boards for the rest... More

We had a blast taking a surf lesson and then practicing for the next week. Our whole family of 5 (kids 8, 10 and 12) took a 2 hour lesson and then came back to borrow the boards. We felt safe and in good hands while we were learning and we felt like we could always ask for more advice... More

We had an excellent experience with Paul who was very patient and kind. Highly recommend this surf school for the quality of instruction, safety tips and ability to borrow a surfboard anytime after a lesson. It was a happy accident that C & C Surf School was right next door to our hotel on the beach, it seems they have... More

Fabulous coaching and service. My son who is 10 and has never surfed before absolutely loved Didier and his instruction. He didn't want to stop! Top-notch service that makes you feel like you're a star, and if you take a lesson from them (very thorough instruction from safety to board care to sunblock recommendations!), you can have free board rentals...

Spent a morning learning how to surf from Marcelo and had a great time! Marcelo was incredibly knowledgeable and started the lesson teaching us about the tide and water where we would be surfing. There was also time outside of the water to learn the basics and get comfortable with the skills he taught us. We ended up having a... More

Our three teenagers had the best time here. They had a fantastic lesson with Didier and were then allowed to use the boards and rash tops whenever they wanted, sometimes twice a day. Each time they were greeted with friendly smiles and encouragement. It proved fantastic value for money. As parents we were allowed to use their car park, just... More

Marcelo is passionate about teaching surf, which is exactly what you want in an instructor! He is thorough and patient, and he believes enjoying yourself is the first rule of surfing. Both my friend and I caught waves with confidence! Everyone at C&C was friendly, and they recommended perfect places for us to eat and visit. They also helped us... More

A fantastic set up on a superb beach for learning to surf. Didier was a superb teacher and by the end of the week my teenagers were even attempting the 'greens'. All the guys were good company and very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

Had a private lesson with my girlfriend. Marcello learnd us all the basics so that we could have great fun in the waves after about an hour. As I promised him we kept on surfing. The Team of C&C got me really into surfing in these few days at Samara. Would recommend it to everybody who's sitting on the beach... More

Was there in May 2016 in Samara, and a friend suggested we should take surf lessons. When walking on the beach we were approached by Didier, one of the instructors at the C&C Surf School. He was really friendly, and seemed like a genuine guy that knew his stuff when it came to surfing. The next day we got ready... More
