    The most friendly and enthusiastic staff ever. Danny is an amazing instructor, and he taught and helped each and every participant with passion. I joined with my little son who fell in love with surfing thanks to the Surf Canaries team. One more thing: they sell really cool caps, too, if you’re looking for a nice and useful souvenir! Totally recommended for both adults and kids!

    I was in the class with my friend as a beginner. First of all it was organizational, you got the clothes and were then divided into 2 groups. Beginners and advanced. We got everything explained in English and then ran to the beach where the waves were good. First a few drills on the beach and when that was perfect we went into the water. And from there he always gave a few tips on what could be done better. We were all safely on the board relatively quickly and it was great fun! I can only recommend the course. And lastly, we looked at the pictures you took while surfing. Great course!

    Awesome instructor - super helpful and encouraging. We were a group of only four people so there was plenty of time for individual feedback. I felt totally safe all the time, though I had never been surfing before. And the cherry on the top: They've got a very responsible attitude towards the environment (e. g. water in glass bottles). Thumps up!
