We now all understand the basics of surfing and will try it again for sure. The teachers were fun, encouraging, and great... More

Friendly, knowledgeable and well worth the money for a lesson. We used the location at the Pacific Sands Resort and it was extraordinarily convenient. Once the lesson was over you could rent the equipment for the rest of the day and keep surfing or drop it off and head back to your place to get cleaned up. Either way it... More

My wife and I went on our first wave-hunt with Emily this morning and it was very cool! She was great at explaining everything before we went in the water. Once we got to it, she encouraged us and gave advice - we had a lot of fun and always felt very safe and well instructed! The Surf Sisters are... More

For second-time surfers, the whole family had a great lesson and experience! Our instructors were very knowledgeable of the area and very thorough in explaining the things we needed to know to keep ourselves safe, and obviously...have a good time. The group lesson is perfect if you want to have some independence. The intructors help you if you need assistance,... More

Fantastic time! We had Emily and Katherine as our instructors this morning and had a blast. Would highly recommend this to anyone. We did the day one class with a group of ten. The instructors were able to get to everyone for personal instruction and tips, regardless of skill level. THANK-YOU!

The Surf Sister Surf School was actually located right on our hotel (Pacific Sands Resort) which was so convenient! The staff was very helpful in getting us fitted in wetsuits and showing us some tips on the board as practically first timers! Very friendly, great experience :)
