Our station provides a full range of Surfboards, SUP, Bodyboards for all levels and needs. Everyone can have fun in the water with safety, from the young kids to adults.
Wave conditions: Falasana beach is facing every surf forecast that provides west waves and it works with the very first small size and it has great quality up to head high days (1.5m) that still work good but for the most experienced. The bottom is sandy and gives many options for the beginners to pick the right spot.
