Where to learn Tandem Surfing in the world? Tandem surfers form a small community, and the only way to get into it, is that the secrets are shared from couples to couples. There are no real Tandem Surfing school, but we hope that one day it would become a standard, that any surfing instructor knows how to tandem.
Bellow you will find the contact of international Tandem Surfing couples who would be honoured to give you some advice.
