We had a really great time with Peaks and Swells. Everything from the food to the acoomodations was great and everyone in the family enjoyed it. The location affords many options for surf and we had some great waves. The standout in my mind was the really excellent poeple that Peaks and Swells employs - from the cooks to surf... More

I have to agree with all the other reviewers - our week of family surf camp completely surpassed expectations. We went based on the recommendation of a friend, and from before we even booked our trip, Hillary was amazingly responsive and helpful by email - sending travel info, offering recommendations on places to stay after camp ended, and answering a...

Hillary and Ryan run a surf camp and bed-and-breakfast. If you enjoy an active vacation that allows you to do something amazing and new, and also get some hammock time while your kids enjoy entertaining themselves, this is the place for you. The surf training is exceptional: highly individualized, fun, challenging, encouraging and really effective. Ryan and Hillary care deeply... More

We booked a family surf camp thinking it would be a nice introduction to surfing for the kids. What we got was a once in a lifetime experience. The people, the food, the surfing...all perfect! The staff went above and beyond anything we imagined. They took care of us better than any family. In fact, we feel like they are... More

I booked this trip on the recommendation of a very good friend, and after speaking with him at length, my expectations were high. My family(wife and I and 3 very active boys!) just returned from our stay... And I will say that Peaks n Swells exceeded those expectations in almost all facets of our visit. Food: the food at PnS...

Our family had an amazing experience learning to surf here in 2013 from Hillary and her team of professional instructors. That trip ranks as the best family vacation we have ever had. All four of us learned to surf: mom, dad, 13-yr-old daughter and 10-yr-old daughter. Two years later, I tried another surf school a little closer, in Puerto Rico.... More

As first time surfers (and full time computer geeks), I was a bit nervous about taking my family on a surf vacation. What if we didn’t like surfing, what would we do then? What would my boys of 6 and 8 do if they couldn’t do it? Fortunately, I didn’t really need to be worried about that at all. The... More

Just returned from an 8 day surf camp with 8 other women and wish I could go back for a spring session!! Having never surfed before and very little experience in the ocean, I had success with surfing and made friends with those powerful ocean waves! I found myself waking up naturally at 5:45 every morning just out of pure... More

WOW!!! This was one of the most life changing vacations I have ever taken. I went to Peaks n Swells with 8 friends to learn to surf, relax and recharge. We all left our husbands and children at home and yes, we missed them, but PNS provided me with the opportunity to be "me" again, I haven't been that relaxed... More

I just returned from a second trip to Peaks N Swells Surf Camp with 8 other 40-50 yr old moms. We all had an amazing time at this beautiful, welcoming, relaxing yet energizing place. Daily morning surf sessions with awesome coaches at some of the most amazing beaches and point breaks made for an incredible way to start every day.... More
