We have a great team here at South Coast who will share our passion for surfing and our respect for the sea and the natural environment. With us you will learn to surf safely while having fun!

We have many years experience teaching groups of all ages and levels. The human touch is important to us, and you will each receive personal attention focused on your needs: we’re flexible and will adapt to you. Between us we speak various languages: Spanish, English, German and Portuguese.
