Daily Surfing

We aim to get you into the kind of waves you’re looking for, and we have a great understanding of all the spots, weather, wind and tides they work on.  Each night, we typically sit down and chat about the day ahead, so you can decide how tomorrow will run.

If you want to head out and chase some waves, your day will begin with an awesome outing in Telo Surf Villa’s High performance twin Suzuki 150 hp or 200 hp speed boat.  Our speedboat access a huge variety of surf breaks and each day is different.  Depending on how you’re feeling, we can stay out all day with a packed lunch, or come back for a gourmet delight at the Villa.

Alternatively, if you want to sleep in, or get some tubes out the front, and go for a speedboat ride later in the day when the tides are more favorable for other spots, that’s no problem.  We’ll work around you, and give you the information you need to make the call.
