If you’re around Southern Goa and looking to get on board for the first time, I’d definitely go with Aloha Surf.

I, a complete beginner, managed to catch my first wave independently on my 3rd lesson, thanks to these passionate, calm and knowledgeable teachers.

Highly recommended, super experience!

We took the beginners course for my 16 year kid, and trust me it was one of her biggest milestones in her 16th year. We drove every day from Benaulim to Agonda which was almost an hour drive through beautiful winding roads.
Right from training to actual on water experience, we were very amazed at how easy the teachers made it look.
Absolutely good experience for us as parents and for my daughter who was super happy at her first surfing lessons.
Hopefully we should be back next year.
Respect!

We stayed on Mandrem beach for 6 nights and then went to Agonda beach (3 hours + drive) just because we wanted to learn surfing...I had been following Aloha Surf school on instagram for a while...so knew where and whom to go to...

My 6.5 year old son started first lesson, he was able to ride the wave & stand on the surf board in 2nd attempt. That shows how effectively Velu and Vishnu communicate with the kids. Crisp, clear and precise explanations and instructions for kids to follow.
Very patient and friendly even more so with kids.

I joined my son during his 2nd lesson, to take my first lesson...a non swimmer at 41 years of age.
It was tough for me to get around standing upright on the board...
Vishnu kept trying patiently explaining to me throughout my first lesson....but somehow i could't manage to stand up...until we reached the end of the lesson

But then out of nowhere, another instructor by the name Mumu arrives and starts talking to me...
He talks to me for 3-5 minutes, breaks the entire process down into steps...and magically...i stood up on the next wave...
Took 1 more wave and stood up again then called it a night...
Next morning of the brand new 2020, i started with Velu as my instructor and kept going until the end of lesson 2.
I was able to stand and stay stable on the board while riding the wave up to a certain level of confidence.

Have already been dreaming of my next visit to the beach...will surely be back for more...

Thanks you so much Vishnu & Velu of Aloha Surf School Team !

And Thanks so much to Mumu of the Mumu Surf School, Mahabalipuram !!

My 9 year old son took surfing lessons with Aloha Surf in December 2019 and had an amazing experience. The teachers are so engaged, patient, positive, and responsive, they are absolutely amazing with children! My son is now so excited about surfing, that he wants to take lessons every day :) Thank you so much, Aloha Surf Team!

We had a week of beach holidays in the beautiful Agonda. After much hesitation (can I do it?) I went for beginners surfing course to Aloha surf shop - and I am very happy about that. Our instructor Vishnu explained the basics and helped everyone in our small newbie group start surfing in 1.5 hours. Professional instruction and nice service, highly recommended!

This was our first time surfing, and the instructors at Aloha made sure we had an amazing experience.
We liked the experience so much that we ended up on the board thrice in 2 days.
Special shoutout to Mumu, the man who guided us through all those rough waves!

I went to Goa to surf.

And ended up going to a yoga resort, meeting up with a friend and getting the stomach flu -
before I finally hit the waves for 3 days of instruction and surf experience with the amazing guys from Aloha surf India.

I had a good experience with all of them - Das, Ella, Achi (sorry if I spelled your names wrong) who were doing the instruction and the owner Velu who taught me something about waves.

I am now a Pro beginner.

I learned to get up and stay on the board on the first lesson, and caught waves without a push on the second lesson, and ride big waves 2-3 times on the 3rd lesson 🏄🏼🌊👍🙏😊

I am so glad I surfed the internet and found Aloha Surf 🏄🏼 school online before I decided to go to Agonda, and I do really recommend this place for beginners looking to learn to surf.

The guys are also funny and well-spirited and it matched completely with my relaxed spiritual experience of Goa - with a little more chill-out and relaxed 😎 experience 🧘🏾‍♂️🏖❤️🐕🍹🏄🏼☀️👍👍👍

Thanks guys ! You are the best !
