Wow! Wavehuggers is awesome. My instructor Helina was such a great teacher. I was nervous at first but after her prep on the beach and a few tries I was up and surfing for the first time. We even saw dolphins swim practically under us! Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

Wavehuggers was a great experience.

My girlfriend and I went to a free demo on Nov 23rd, the instructors were really welcoming and made us feel comfortable, even though it was out first time attempting to surf. We ended up booking a lesson for a couple days later.

The lesson was a blast, Helina was our instructor. She was really knowledgeable, encouraging, and cool. They seemed very flexible when it came surf spot selection, we ended up going with their recommendation, regardless it's a plus.

I highly recommend Wavehuggers to anyone interested in trying to surf.

Andrew was great - booked a lesson at El Porto and had a blast, who knew it was such a workout? Worth every penny, I even got a discount for booking in September. Recommend to absolutely everyone of all ages!
