    Beautiful water - very clear and surprisingly warm. Not very safe to swim in - lots of rips. Gorgeous scenery. Sand is very warm in the sun, so take sensible footwear.

    The centre itself is quite small, it has toilets, a shop and a couple of rooms. No food is available so make sure you bring your own. The paths around the centre are fantastic - beautiful forest full of trees, grasses and other plants.

    The pathway was very well made I had no trouble at all navigating the paths!
    The waterfall was really nice, and the views were splendid!

    Awesome views.. nice walk.. having a water bottle is must as it gets very hot during summers.. hard walk on return as it’s steep uphill.. but the views are worth it!

    They do not have a shop, but you can contact them for lessons through the info on their website.
    I have a little bit of experience surfing, so I was looking for an intermediate class to improve my skills. Phil knew exactly where to find the best waves for my level and gave me great new tips. I surfed some perfect waves for two days and had a great time. Highly recommended!

    I emailed Elements surf and set up a 5 day surf camp which was so cool I extended it by another 3. Coming directly from the UK I was quite clueless but Chelsea really helped by organising basically everything for me making it really easy and worthwhile. Alex was a great tour guide and occasional surf instructor and finally, Julles was just the best, took me from a total surfing beginner to sitting out the back trying to catch the green waves with everyone else. Cheers guys

    I booked 5 days staying and 4 days surf at Rapu. It was amazing!
    The accommodation is really beautiful and the vegetarian catering from Brett was delicious!
    I surfed before with some surfschools and i had an injury, but i feelt every minute really confident and save.
    I never learned soooooo mutch about the surf, the techniques, the ocean, the terms and also a bit about myself!
    Brett explained everything so clear and helpful! I was asking a lot of things and i got every time a really good and sometimes funny answers! :)
    The week helped me a lot to improve my surf skills!

    A big hug and a really big thank you Brett for teaching me all the stuff!

    I can recommend everyone this surf with Rapu, also the advanced ones!

    I booked a set of 3 group lessons at 11am for 3 days in a row. They emailed at 9pm the day before to tell me it would be changed into 2 private lessons. I was travelling alone so was hoping to meet others in the group lesson so private lessons wasn’t my preference but I accepted as I had no other option. They were very vague about why the lessons were becoming private but it turned out to be because they didn’t have anyone else booked onto the group lessons. I did 30 mins of the lesson in really rough conditions before we called it a day due to the bad weather and I was offered a refund. They never gave me the refund and stopped replying to my emails.

    The whole thing seemed unprofessional and disorganised. Would not recommend paying money to these people in advance although I’m sure they would be fine at teaching.
