Do you have any questions?

In general, you and your surf instructors will leave after breakfast and drive to the best beach for the prevailing conditions (waves, wind, etc.). You will receive 3-4 hours of surf coaching plus extra time on the beach, and will be brought back to the camp in the afternoon/ evening.

You can arrive as well as join the surf course on any day of the week. If you are a first time guest, the check in time is 8am to 10pm. If you have stayed with us before, you can arrive any time you want.

On the day after the session, all images can be accessed via ShootProof. We allocate the pictures according to their date so you should be able to easily find your way through them.

You may dispose of the equipment for as long as there is a surf instructor on the beach with you. However, you will not be allowed to use the equipment independently after the course.
