The surf camp was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend! You connect with people from all over the world and spend all day, everyday doing activities with them. There's a general routine for the days, which I enjoyed, but it's flexible and will be adjusted for different activities like day excursions to other beaches. The volunteer work was as described and both Michael and Ollie were helpful, available, and supportive during my 5 weeks volunteering. Overall, the camp is a lot of fun it feels like you make a month's worth of memories in a single day. I loved my time at the surf camp!!! <3

My volunteering experience at the surf camp was the best. Very easy tasks and a lot of free time, I absolutely loved everything about it and met some of the most amazing people. Doesn't matter if you look for a place to party or a place to chill, everyone can find what they are looking for there (although it will be much more fun if you party). If I could turn back time and go again I would do it instantly.

I had an amazing time at the surf camp, it was a beautiful experience, I've met so many great people, Ollie is nice and funny, and he knows to be serious when we need him to be. Oh the only thing you have to be aware of, is that this experience can be a little overwhelming cause it is intense, and full of bugs and dust ! Thanks for everything I loved my time at the surf camp ☀️

My month at the surf camp was one of the best months of my life, I made so many new friends, the work is incredibly easy, and the camp is breathtaking. Highly recommend this experience to anyone and everyone:)

If you love the excitement of having a large group of people around you this is the place for you! The working hours are very slim because there's so many people, which is perfect because then you have more time for surfing, chilling, socialising, swimming, shopping, partying, whatever you want! Everyone is so kind and welcoming, you will make the best of friends really soon which makes it so hard to leave but the experience is 100% worth it, I highly recommend to stay at the surf camp!
