Spent a week in Sept 2016 surfing with Jah Shaka at their Tiny Whale lodge. The whole trip was great from start to finish, the staff were friendly, surf was great, food was top and the instructing was attentive. No complaints.
I was slightly apprehensive prior to going as this was a first time travelling solo, if there's anyone in a similar position there's nothing to worry about. There's many solo travelers there and the staff are very welcoming.
