  • It was my first time with surfing and I had a great experience with Kallialay. Make sure to call and book one day in advance. They charge you if you want them to take pics but it's worth the price. Do opt for pics.
  • My wife and I spend a full week at Kallialay during last week of Christmas in 2018. We took private lessons from Juan, the founder and chose the 7am-8am morning session. Both my wife and I are not great swimmers and have our own fear of water. Yet with a goal to surf, we signed up and boy, what an amazing experience it was. Juan paced us everyday to level up by pointing out the things we were doing wrong. This feedback accelerated the learning experience and by end of day 2, we were both up on surfboards. The next days weโ€™re moving to various spots around the beach and catching bigger waves. If you are starting to learn surfing, itโ€™s great to have a coach to help choose and catch the right wave with timing. That way, the focus can be on the technique of standing/popping up on board which goes through many attempts before we get it right. Having Juan by our side was invaluable to overcome our fear of drowning as well. Going deep out to the waves, falling off from the board, crashing into waves are all fun once we overcome the fear. We were also able to try out two different surfboards as the school has a collection of them. While we could have opted for group lessons (1:8 teacher:student ratio), we decided to do private lessons (1:2 ratio) at a higher price as we wanted to really learn at our pace with direct feedback immediately after each wave we failed to ride. Ask for Juan, leave your brain on the beach and paddle out for a fun and safe surfing experience at Kallialay. We are coming back in 2019 as well for more practise for sure ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘
