I took 11 people with Saskya and team for our company President's Club event. We spent 3 hours with various people learning to surf. Sashay and the instructors were very good and we had a wonderful time. She was also very flexible in accommodating our group and ensuring that those who didn't surf still had a relaxing time. Thanks!

Giovanni picked us up from our hotel as planned. We were with 2 other people and received great 1 to 1 instruction. One of the best hol excursions we've ever done.... More

As a group of women who had never surfed before, we weren't sure what to expect, but as soon as we met Saskya and her team we knew we were in good hands. After a short lesson on land, we headed out. Each of us had our own instructor to assist in the water. They were encouraging, patient and helpful.... More

The Coast Riders were amazing!!! Saskya and her husband have been in the hotel industry so their experience with customer service was very apparent. It was a little tricky to find on the beach because their beach hut was hiding behind some trees but if you go half way down the beach its on the left. You have to pass... More
