Tarifa is the best surfski destination in Europe and certainly one of the top in the world. At Epic Surfski Center in Tarifa, we offer the most comprehensive education methods developed and tested over the years by the living surfski legend Oscar Chalupsky.
“We spent 4 days in sunny Epic Surfski Centre with conditions varying from calm to big up to 3.5 m swell (on the 2nd day!) and paddled altogether some 100 km.
With only lake paddling experience the training sessions Boyan made a massive improvement for my down-wind skills. Even in the biggest conditions I was never concerned about the safety and paddling a stable boat like the V8 allowed to fully concentrate in catching the waves without worrying about the balance. The briefings and feed-back from Boyan were very clear and instructive. I also enjoyed the kick-butt session with a local paddling machine Antonio despite Boyan complaining us being the worst paddling mates he could think of..
Many thanks for Boyan and Julian for really taking such great care of us. We’ll be back for more..
This was a very well organized training camp that I would recommend to anyone looking to improve their paddling skills.”

“Since the spring was delayed at home we went to the Epic surfski center in Tarifa to get some paddling and to improve our downwind paddling skills.
We had booked paddling for four days, but we got some extra paddling already the evening we arrived since Boyan wanted to evaluate our paddling skills before we started.
We spent the day thereafter paddling in easterly winds, Levante, perfect for learning how to catch waves.
On Friday the winds had turned to SW, not the best conditions so we spent the day on improving paddling technique and learning how to launch and land through the surf zone at the beach.
On Saturday and Sunday we paddled from Tarifa to Getares. The conditions on Saturday with SW wind wasn’t as perfect as on Sunday with westerly winds, but both days were amazing with big waves and some good runs with maximum speeds of 22 km/h in the surfs.
Boyan gave us great confidence in all conditions and the Epic V8 is the perfect surfski for training and we never doubted about the stability and could focus on the paddling. Before and after every session we got lots of feedback and every morning we looked at videos from the day before.
We stayed at the Arte Vida hotel located at the beach just north of Tarifa. A rather basic hotel, but with a excellent location and a friendly staff.
Many thanks to Boyan and Julian for taking great care of us. We’ve learned a lot and we’ll be back”
