I had a wonderful time at SURF N STAY and even extended my stay. The camp is a lovely peaceful place close to the beach.

The surf lessons were amazing because of that American dude and his positive vibes. I felt safe and learned something new every day. I also really enjoyed the yoga lessons in the evening. Thank you lovely for giving me a first impression of yoga. I am still practicing :)

I hope there will be the chance to come back next summer for a little bit more surfing!

So nice staff! We took an awesome lesson with Chris. Me and my dad (65) have never surfed before and stood on the board. Can really recommend!
