Had a great time. My teacher (Jake?) was great and spent a lot of time helping me. He stayed out extra long to let me ride good wave in and end on a high note. Highly recommend this place!

My two daughters had a great time trying surfing. They grew in confidence over the course of the lesson and had a great, exhausting time getting in tons of waves and lots of coaching with the two instructors. The instructors were funny and personable, kept my kids motivated and having fun throughout. Highly recommend and will book again on the next trip.

Awesome lesson! Kyle is a great instructor. I learned more in the first 10 minutes with him than I did in a full 90 minute lesson with another company. Will definitely be back!

It was a great outing for this “senior” student. Kyle and Anthony were professional but friendly, and got me standing up for a ride for the second time in my life (first time since the 1970s). Going back for more attentive instruction tomorrow!
