Anna, Poland

We had a lot of fun in Lagos learning to surf (as complete beginners). The instructors, the food, the accomodations all met or exceeded our expectations. Having the evenings free to wonder around the beautiful city and experience the nightlife made this an ideal destination. We are already planning our next stay.

Ryan, Canada

The instructors are knowledgeable and approachable, which makes the entire surf camp experience very rewarding.

Andrew, UK

My daughters had a great day both beginners by the end of the day they managed to stand up on their boards. The group was small and the instructors had time to help everyone in the group. Excellent beach perfect waves for beginners. We will be booking again on our next trip to the Algarve.

As I was a little older than normal clientele I was a little bit nervous before I went but I could not have had a better holiday, the accommodation and staff are second to none. I felt at home from the first minute I arrived. It was a totally stress free brilliant experience and I can't wait to be back. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks to all the staff and other guest for a great week.

Diana and Denise extremely helpful in making arrangements. Marcel and Simon were very good, especially with the kids. We booked a days lesson in October for 2 adults and 2 children. We had a great day attempting to surf, it looks a lot easier than it is in practice! Marcel and Simon were excellent tutors. Our boys really enjoyed it too. It was tough going physically and took us a few days to get over our exertions but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. And we all managed to stand on the board for at least a few seconds!

Jim, Ireland

As a beginner I was very nervous about surfing for the first time. But the staff and instructors were great! The casa is a fantastic place to stay! The breakfasts were nice, and the bbq night was a lot of fun. The casa is at a perfect location. Close enough to walk to the centre of town, but far enough away to avoid the noise and chaos of late night Lagos. The patio, hammocks and hot tub were a great for chilling after a long day of surfing! I had a great time and have lots of great memories from my trip. Thank you so much!

Brittany, Canada

Everything was excellent!

Gladys, Argentina

Amazing surf instructors Lee, Mark, Marcel and Rick were extremely helpful and gave great tips and techniques, whilst being a lot of fun also. I came to Wavepals with 3 friends and did not have any expectations. I had not surfed before, however by the 4th day I was up on the board. The surf instructors varied per day and they were all unique and provided different tips and techniques. We had a lot of fun and found a new love in surfing thanks to Wavepals. Would highly recommend this trip to everyone. You will have a lovely stay and meet some cool new friends.

Emily from UK, London

Best surf trip ever! The casa was awesome - Sharon, Pete and all instructors were so laid back and lovely.  The house itself was like I was like being at home and staying in the dorm with fellow solo girl travellers was great.
Recommending it to all and any that listen and if I get the numbers, I'm hoping to bring a group back with me this September.
Well worth the wait and an absolute gem of a surf spot.  They've got a good thing going with that house :0)

Jeff from downunder

The casa was great:
* clean
* spacious
* great tenants
* great atmosphere
The surfing was also excellent:
* instructors very competent and friendly
* courses well balanced throughout the day

And Lagos is very lively, especially in the evening. When following recommendations, restaurants were always great.
All in all, a great time off ;-)

Lionel from France

I had a wonderful holiday thank you! The house was very nice and had everything I could possibly want. It was very relaxed and easy-going as were my hosts. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable. Most nights there were only three of us which is how I prefer it to be anyway. As there weren't many other people they upgraded me to the twin ensuite room which opens into the garden. The house itself was very clean and tidy and the garden was big with sunbeds and a hottub. I also liked how it wasn't located in the town center itself so it was quite, but only a short walk away. The town had amazing restaurants and really good food and wine for good value. I also went to a yoga lesson that one of the surf instructors recommended which was very relaxing. I think I went to Lagos at a good time as it wasn't too crowded.
The instructors were very patient and helpful. I enjoyed it so much I got an extra day surfing on my last day. On our day off surfing we rented out the mountainbikes and biked around the cliffs to the next town- wonderful scenery!
Overall I'd say its probably one of the best holidays Ive had for the best value. Im thinking of going back over the summer!
Many thanks!!

Angel Chang

Well...what can I say? It was just fab!
The guys were so nice and helpful, it was super clean, and in the perfect spot for getting into Lagos of an evening (for a few drinks). The hot tub was just what was required at the end of our days surfing and the weekly BBQ was so much fun and the food was really tasty!
The lessons were perfect, I didn't feel that because I was a beginner I was treated any differently but the instructors always had a constructive comment and were super patient and explained things really well when I didn't get things straight away. They were always watching the whole group and there was no chance of slacking!!
We always found a good place to eat in the evening and we had such a great variety of food, the nightlife was great too - although the late nights made the following days surfing interesting! 
All in all a great holiday - thanks!


LOVED every second of the surfing and Lagos. Surfhouse is amazing, absolutely ideal. Lessons from Rick, Lee and Marcel were class, they are really good guys, knew what they were doing and gave really specific tips to each of re what to change/alter etc. I was surprised at how quickly they get you up standing on the board.  Lagos is a good spot, nice old town, very safe to ramble around, good selection of beaches and water quality was very good. All in all, I shall be booking again to return to Lagos and the surfhouse, it was great.
