My friends and I did stand up paddle lesson and later a surf lesson with Gabriela. Both were wonderful and we got great photos. Our experiences with her were a big highlight of our trip. She’s extremely professional, flexible, and super fun!

My brother and I started the 4 hour trip at 07:00 and we had a ball paddling out to the islands at Barra beach. Great fun and easy enough to get the hang of. Would recommend to others!! English speaking instructors also make things easier.
