Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    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.
