“By FAR the best surf lessons I’ve had before. We covered so much in such a short space of time, and I came away having caught green waves for the first time, and also what to improve next time. Vicky is so lovely and FULL of life. Amazing value!!”

Alice
“Amazing, unforgettable experience! I wholeheartedly recommend Vicky to bring your surf to the next level. She kindly shares all the little details that no one else bothers with but makes a huge difference, and gently pushes you to get out of your comfort zone to level up. I’ve had many professional teachers before but Vicky is one of a kind. I’m already looking forward to coming back! With deep gratitude 🙏”
Johanna
“Poloca is simply the best!! Vicky is super professional and a very experienced instructor with huge technical knowledge. She has a great positive vibe, loves her job and manages to pass on her passion. We (family of 4) absolutely loved our 3 days of private class! We had lots of fun and improved our surfing skills daily. Vicky is patient and encouraging and provided helpful feedback to each one of us.”
Daiana

“The best best best! Vicky doesnt give a generic lesson – she teaches you so much more than how to try stand on a board. She teaches you How to read the waves, how to handle them etc and in return the rest comes a lot easier! Was so happy to catch my first green wave today, on my 3rd time being on a board. Thank you vicky!! Miles and miles above the other surf lessons I’ve had 💕”

Alex

“I had 2 private surfskate lessons with Vicky: the first one was so exciting that I wanted to do another one the following day! It was my first skate experience and I was able to learn to start, turn and stop on my own. I was also supported in understanding which type of skate was right for me to continue practicing! Highly recommended”
