The experience at the surf camp was very nice and chill! I was there in September, end of season, so the spot had been opening almost only on weekends. During weekdays there was almost nothing to do but chill and enjoy the beach and the extremely peaceful region. The owners are really welcoming and easygoing. I'd definitely recommend this place, especially if you want a very quiet experience.

Very cool place and very cool and kind people that helped me and taught me lots of things. Things that will be useful all my life from now on. They gave me confidence and responsibilities so I started to feel appreciated and important at the place. Speaking about the place, the place is paradise in my opinion, just what I needed, sea and nature to heal my emotions. In front of the spot is The Mount Olympus, no more spoilers. About the jobs there is a lot variety, every day is something different and new opportunities to learn something new and learn watersports as well.

I stayed at this place for two amazing weeks from the middle of March till the end of March. Thanos and Vaso welcomed me from the very first minute and I felt so safe and cared for all the time. They created a good atmosphere. I stayed in a room alone where we worked and it worked for me perfectly but if you want to go to the toilete or the showers you have to go to another building. On the first week I worked mostly on setting up the place with one of his paid workers Xristo. We developed a very good bromance throughout the two weeks. So easy to work with and taught me how to surf. 10/10.

Thanos and Vasso have a wonderful spot on the beachfront. Peaceful when it's quiet and so energetic when events, groups, and many people are there enjoying the water sports and facilities. They have created a great chill vibe. I was welcomed in and over my weeks there I tried the variety of traditional Greek coffees and meals that Vasso kindly made every evening. I focused on the opening and closing each day, weeding the gardens, and assisted out in the water when required. I also gave some advice on the social media platforms to help improve there customer reach.

I had a really wonderful relaxed time with everyone at the surf camp! I was their first volunteer so there was a lot of things to sort out still, but they always made sure I was happy and had everything i needed. The space they have created here at the beach is so wonderful, the garden was a joy to look after, and I felt so happy every morning waking up with the sound of the sea. Vasso cooked the most lovely food and I always felt welcomed and looked after. While I was there I mostly worked on the garden, weeding and tying up the tomatoes and doing housekeeping / cleaning. Thank you all!
