I had one great surfing lesson with Andy at Oceano school. There were two of us and I had done a bit before but my brother in law had never done it. Andy tailored the lesson to both of us and got us both standing up. The conditions and beach where ideal for beginners when I was there which may have also contributed to our success. He took some pics and shared them with us and the price was reasonable plus he is fluent in English and Spanish - I'd go there for a follow up visit if I'm in the area again, which I hope to be.
I spent the first 2 weeks of my summer holiday here for the single reason of surfing. It turns out this place has more to offer than just surfing, the kindest of heart Andy the king of surfing and the rest of the crew, Juami, Rafa and Luis made those 2 weeks the best. The day I got on that bus out of Conil was the day I wanted to go back.
You'll see me soon,
I always thought surfing must be something quite difficult to do but it really isn't when you join the Oceano surf school in Conil.
Andy is the best teacher I can imagine and the other guides are also very good and friendly. They have been surfing now for 12 years and longer, they really know what they are doing and saying.
There are about 4-5 people per instructor so they can focus on what you are struggling with and are able to help you and give advice. In the end - after 5 days of more or less good weather conditions (the waves weren't always that strong) - I was able to paddle, stand up and turn. A huge success! I absolutely come back next year :)
This was the third time that I've visited Oceano Surf in Conil. The waves were really good and I fully enjoyed the Improver lessons with Juanmi aka John Michael and Andy. Good after service local guides. The Surf house apartment was clean, comfortable and well located. I really enjoyed my holiday and I can't wait to get back. Thanks to all the team at Oceano Surf.
I have just returned from my trip to Spain; I spent the first week of it in Conil doing a 5-day surf course with Oceano. It was the second time I have booked with Oceano and I will definitely go back. Andy and his team are such fun, easy going people who are passionate about surfing and truly dedicated to get everyone on that board. The lessons consist of a bit of theory, a warm-up and then off you go into the sea where you get a chance to put theory into practice. The instructors are always around to help you improve. If you are looking to spend a fun and active week by the sea I can absolutely recommend Oceano Surf and Conil. I will surely be back next year :)
