I enjoyed a phenomenal volunteer experience at the the surf the surf the surf camp, and can recommend it without any reservations whatsoever. From my first day, I felt welcomed and respected as part of a international team of volunteers that supplement the owners and local staff. I had the opportunity to improve existing skills as well as learn new ones that come naturally as part of working at a successful surfing lodge. Lastly, living conditions and and work responsibilities were equitable from my perspective. I'm confident that I'll fondly remember my month volunteering here- the bar is set high!

Well, stayed at the the surf the surf the surf camp for 4 weeks, it was incredibly nice. I absolutely loved my time there. Everyone is always friendly and clear with all tasks you need to do and everything is well organized and clean. Also, I could join all the activities they were organizing, specially surfing. I owe a big thanks to Ollie, for taking me to the best surf spots and sharing his knowledge with me and Iris for letting me have the best experience there. Hopefully I can come back in the future.
