Didier was very professional and personable. Great experience, very informative, and thoroughly explains the surf etiquette so that one feels comfortable their first time alone.

Informative, professional and you get the board for 5 days. Our instructor knew what he was talking about and didn't cut any corners. I certainly recommend this surf school in Playa Samara.

I initially took a lesson with Paul and then spent the next three mornings practicing what I learned. Throughout the week, everybody at C & C was helpful and supportive by providing me with assistance and advice at every opportunity.

My sons (10 and 14) and I took a surfing lesson at C&C and were very happy with the results. We also got to borrow their boards the rest of the week. Great deal, friendly and professional. For all ages.

C & C surf school isn't a hotel. Just surf lessons. I stayed at Villas Tangerine when I was in Samara. I suggest you check it out and see my review for it

If I remember correctly, I paid $62 cause its all I had on me at the time. I believe a private lesson is really $70 but they did it for me for less. And that includes the use of the board for the next few days so you can... More
