Reviews of our club

Dmitriy Sudakov

Moscow

Surfway Moscow, for me, is a tropical surf-island in the harsh reality of Moscow. Every time when I come to the ocean, I think that I should have trained more. I recall Surfway training in Moscow and I understand that, without them, I would have wasted my two-week vacation uselessly splashing in the foam, taking a picture with the surf board and then telling my friends that I am a surfer. =) Surfway Moscow always has an emotional and cheerful atmosphere. Great guys! Thank you for everything!

Karina Patakhova

Moscow

Thanks to the entire Surfway Moscow team! I am always ready for a "line-up," even in Moscow. For anyone who wants to surf but is not ready to change their country of residence, I recommend training and getting ready for surfing in advance. In Moscow, this is possible in the Surfway Moscow surf-school.

Marina Khaikina

Moscow

Recently, someone told me that being a surfer in Moscow is difficult to impossible. I had the same opinion until last year, when I learned that this is not so. Surfway Moscow proved it. The guys love and cheer for their work, they widely spread their enthusiasm, and most importantly, they train and teach something that seems impossible to do in city conditions - to surf. And you know, they’re doing great.

Roma Shubin

Moscow

I got to Surfway Moscow surf school by recommendation. I myself did not think that I would really enjoy surfing, but the waves and atmosphere of the ocean plunged me into this hobby. When I decided to get fit in Moscow, I applied to Surfway Moscow, and here, for me, the main advantage was probably the coaching staff which makes it possible to properly feel what surfing is. I attend training sessions at least two to three times a week. Although it’s not always and immediately that everything works out for me, the main thing is to not give up, and the school of professionals will help with this!

Roma Barabash

Moscow

This is great project! As I understand, it's one of a kind in the Moscow region. We do boat wakesurfing, and took the course "Surfing preparation for beginners". We really liked it! Wakesurfing is a wonderful thing and great entertainment, as well as a very effective preparation for surfing. Everything is organized very well: training spaces are conveniently located, there is always a choice of place and time. Great team! Positive, open, enthusiastic people, who adore what they do. I recommend Surfway Moscow to everyone who plans to touch the magical world of surfing, and to everyone who has tried surfing and wants to reach a whole new level.

Alla Emelyanova

Moscow

The guys from Surfway Moscow developed an excellent program that allows you to try your hand at mastering waves far from the ocean and regardless of your level of physical fitness. They treat their students with great attention and care and rejoice at students' successes as their own. In such an atmosphere, you learn quickly and easily. Training is very diverse, but at the same time, everything is aimed at acquiring the necessary skills for the ocean. For example, the technique of pop-up on a surfboard is first practiced on land and then trained in the pool. The guys were attentive to my back injury and helped find a way for me to take-off for surfing that was comfortable.

Olya Ershova

Moscow

Good afternoon! I would like to express my gratitude to Surfway Moscow. In February, 2016, I came to Surfway for the "Surfing basics for beginners" course. This course consisted of a very informative, interesting, and productive two months of training, as a result of which I learned the basic rules of surfers' behavior on the “line-up,” learned how to read forecasts, and how to determine the best time for a ride. I also mastered skate-surfing, and most importantly these courses helped me to catch my first wave during a trip together with Surfway Moscow to Vladivostok. I would also like to note that Surfway is not just about fun trainings, it is also about interesting, diverse, and fun people and team! Thanks to Surfway, especially to our teacher Denis Drogaykin, for excellent classes, new friends, and, of course, for the first wave! I am pleased to continue to take lessons with you!
