Great Surfing lesson From Airtime! - I have been living in Cyprus for two years and i finally stumbled across the Airtime website and gave Steve Morris a call to discuss whether i could take up surfing in Cyprus. He was very helpful and i popped into his brilliant shop the very next day. He then took the time to explain the basics and we agreed to meet for a lesson last weekend near Akrotiri. Although the waves were small, Steve did all he could to make the lesson informative and enjoyable and i loved it! Good price and very helpful. I am now going to get a board and start my journey! Can't wait! Thanks again to Steve, he is the man you need to get you started.

Cyprus Surf - So I moved to Cyprus in March2011 for work thinking that my surfing days are over in this land of flat seas and baking sun....how wrong was I?
Thanks to this site and the comments below I looked up Steve at Airtime in Limassol last week. Steve is a top guy with the true spirit of surfing deep in his bones. I'm a real part time paddler due to work (and age) but Steve took the time to discuss and think about what would be right for me and never once tried a hard sell and he never got impatient with me for all my dithering trying to choose a board! He gave me the full lowdown on all the places with full directions and then still offered to meet me. If you come to Cyprus for surfing (or other stuff like skateboarding, mountain biking or roller blading) you have to look up Steve - he'll help you out!
