The activity is as described, everything was sensational and they provided the necessary information to make our stay wonderful. Victor our surf teacher was very patient and always took care of the group and made this experience wonderful and the yoga classes were the perfect complement after each day of surf practice. The camp had everything we needed and they provided us with sleeping bags since we didn't have any. I highly recommend it!!
