Monkey Surfing is a surf school for all surfers.

Beginners can learn through our lesson "introduction to surfing" or immerse themselves in the surf culture with the 3-surflessons beginner program.

Intermediates can improve and learn a different wave with our lesson "introduction to the reef break" or bring their skills to the next level with the 3-surflessons intermediate program.

Advanced can choose through the widest range of Surfboard Rental on the island (Longboards & Single fins, Mini-mals, Funboards, Retro boards, performance shortboards with high-tech fins) & surfguiding.

At Monkey Surfing you'll meet people who travel the world to surf, share their experiences and smiles.

Our classes follow the ISA standards, our instructors are ISA certified and surf life-savers. They are not only surfers, they are also watermen and do all the water activities to appreciate and understand this element.

We teach ONLY IN SMALL GROUPS - 3 students for 1 instructor max - because we want to give you the best learning conditions. This way you can improve faster than regular lessons in other schools and in a safer environment.

Private Surf lesson are also available on request.

I had a great time during my 3 surfing lessons at Monkey Surfing. I was a total beginner and the instructors were great at communicating the basics of surfing and safety. They stick right with you the whole time and kept coaching as different situations came along. It always felt very safe and we had tons of fun. It was... More

After a chat with Captain Planet he did we could throw a few boards in the boat... More

I have surfed over 20 times and used the long board which the guys helped me with my Turning and stance. My boyfriend had never before and... More

Went for a beginners surf lesson, had a first class instructor, we were 2 of 3 people being taught so we had enough 1 on 1 time with the instructor. The waves were nice. It was an all around great experience. Highly recommended!
