We had a great time trying out surfing for a week with Brett at Mr Brights Surf School. He is very patient and the waves at Kokrobite are just perfect for beginners. Never crowded, so you have all the waves for yourself. If two old dudes over 50 can do it - so can you. We will be back to challenge the waves.

Henki66Great surfing for beginners

Love Mr. Brights for surf lessons and board rentals for my whole family. Instructors are wonderful and make surfing a lot of fun!! As an extra bonus, the instructors were recently trained in water safety, which is awesome when they are teaching my young daughter to surf. Highly recommend coming here for a surf lesson, even if you've never surfed before!!

Bertho1Superb surfing instruction

Lots of board selections. Very helpful. Great to check out for beginners, intermediates or advanced surfers! Took an advanced lesson and had a great time! If you are looking to get out for a surf not top far from the city, would definitely recommend this spot and Mr. Brights' shop for all your needs! Friendly local vibes as well 🙂

Been to mr.Bright's surfing school a few times now and can highly recommend. He really enjoys seeing his students progress. His local instructors are also great. Athmosphere at Kokrobite is super easy, a must to see if one's in Accra. Only 45 min ride(about 50 cedi on Uber). Jussi, Finland
