Thanks for taking the time to leave a review for the next surfer

Family Surf Lesson

We had a wonderful two weeks of lessons (5 in total) with Troy. Troy was amazing with the children, getting them both up on their first lesson. With his background of years of surfing across the globe and lifeguarding, we were extremely comfortable to leave him with the kids as he helped them improve their skill level. They then spent the next couple of lessons laughing at their well built fathers trying to replicate their surfing prowess. Most of the other surf lessons seemed over crowded, often with 8-12 people to 1 instructor. More importantly they would run for most of the day - tide and weather agnostic. With www.surflessonshossegor.com we received a much more bespoke service. We only surfed on a suitable beach for the children and at times and tides where the waves would be suitable. Troy was very flexible around timings and skill levels, making sure we all had a chance to get up. The equipment was in very good condition with wet suits and boards for all shapes and sizes. We would recommend Troy to anyone coming to Hossegor and wanting to surf at any level. We will definitely use him again on our return.

Superb

We booked a weeks worth of lessons, private for my 8 year old son and small group for my husband and 12 year old daughter. Troy was amazing. He taught them all how to read the waves as well as how to surf them. He was incredible with my 8 year old too, encouraging and inspiring him to want to get out there and do more. My husband and daughter absolutely loved their lessons and each night they loved looking at the pictures I took! Troy knows the area so well and was able to meet at a different beach when the swell at the usual beach was too tricky for beginners. I would definitely recommend him if you are going to the area. I'm sure the bigger surf schools are fine but for safety, fun and flexibility I think you'd struggle to find a better teacher! Thanks Troy. We will be back.

I have spent 1 week of private surf lessons with Troy. He brought me to several different spots around the area and explained carefully how to read and try to understand a spot and to know where you want to enter the waters and start to read the waves. It's been a pleasure to go surfing with him, as he enjoys sharing his knowladge and his stories in surfing. We have had good laughters and he encureged me to continue surfing. He's a great teacher, patient, understandable, motivating and is truly focusing on you correcting your mistakes but also pointing out what you are already doing right. Thanks a lot!

Excellent Beginner Group Lesson

We had an Awesome time in our Beginner lesson with Troy! Really friendly instructor, kept us safe and made it fun. I was able to stand on the board right away and with his direction and encouragement I was able to start to spot and catch the waves myself. Great feedback, even when he seemed to be focusing on someone else he was able to spot small mistakes in stance. I didn’t want to come back in I was having such a great time! Came away feeling confident in being able to surf small waves without instruction. Would love to come back for the next progression. Highly recommended!

Amazing lesson with Troy

Troy gave us a brilliant lesson, he's clearly got a wealth of knowledge in surfing and knows how to teach it well! He met us at our local beach and brought all of the equipment with him. We had a great time in the water with Troy and he got us standing up on the board in no time. Really cool guy to talk to and would definitely recommend. Would love to have more lessons with Troy next time we're in Hossegor. See you again soon!

Another Superb Surf Holiday

Back again for a second year of surf lessons with Troy.
He is a superb teacher for adults and children alike, calm, informative and funny we all thoroughly enjoyed our lessons and are progressing nicely.
Thanks again Troy- a l’annee prochaine.

Great surfing experience

We recently had two small group lessons with Troy and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were 3 adults / 2 children, all relative beginners... and Troy was brilliant at coaching us each individually, keeping an eye on everyone, giving us all tips to get the best out of our time in the water. We particularly appreciated Troy's flexibility re. not being tied to a surf school base or particular location, so meeting place is arranged according to tide/waves/conditions. We met at Seignosse; either side of us further along the beach were large groups, crowded water, etc. whereas we had our own little patch, which meant we could concentrate on what he was teaching us rather than having to worry about keeping out of the way of others! Also appreciated Troy being so accommodating when we switched one of the adults for another on Day 2 :-)) and allowing one of us to borrow a board to continue practising while he took another lesson after us. Troy is obviously a very experienced surfer himself, and he was good company as well as being positive and encouraging, observant and attentive during the lessons. We all felt that we made progress – just a pity we couldn't have stayed for longer to build on it! Hopefully we'll be back next year though, and wouldn't hesitate to book with Troy again. Happy to recommend him wholeheartedly!

Super

Meine Tochter Vroni und ich haben drei Surf Stunden bei Troy gebucht. Wir haben sehr viel bei ihm gelernt und es hat uns Beiden großen Spaß gemacht. Troy hat es geschafft dass wir uns beide beim Surfen verbessert haben.
Nächstes Jahr werden wir Troy wieder buchen!

Excellent beginners surf lesson

Troy gave us an amazing first lesson in surfing! He is an excellent teacher and always explained what we did right and wrong resulting in us both standing up in our first lesson! He paid very good attention to us, we felt safe and he was easy to be with. We had an amazing time with Troy and he has our best recommendation!
