WHO WE ARE

TEAMWORK

Over the last years we have been following the same passion surfing around the globe, making friends and
exploring new places. More than surf lessons and surf guiding, we want to offer you a unique experience you'll never forget.
For surfers of all abilities, our professional team meets the needs of each of our guests that will help them progress rapidly.
The final piece of the puzzle is our local “Mother Chef” who prepares all our meals from scratch.
This is your Week and we hope to see you soon.
