Any of the surf instructors at this school are great. I recommend Didier, he is very knowledgeable and a good communicator in English or Spanish. I went into the waves with confidence after having a lesson from him. Gracias Didier!

We had a 1.5 hour lesson for 45 dollars. The instructor taught my partner to surf which we thought was impossible. Some negatives were that the first half of the lesson was a bit pointless as the instructor mostly talked and used a white board...More

We picked C&C Surf School because they have a big sign in front of the surf-shack that says "HAVE FUN" - and having fun while learning to surf was our goal. We are a family of three - a couple in their 30s and an...More

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
How much is it to take a class?

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
