We singed up our 13 and 9 year old with same day surf lessons through Rusty. Great in accommodating us. Justin was the instructor. Very helpful and patient with the kids. Kids got right up. Very reasonable on the pricing of our 9 year old when he decided after awhile that surfing may not be for him. Would highly recommend.... More

Decided to try surfing today. SoCal was the perfect choice. Rusty was responsive when making the reservation and he and his team were great throughout the lesson. I had a couple of good rides and lots of wipeouts, but it was a perfect day in Carlsbad!

I really wanted a taste of the west coast lifestyle while on vacation for a few days. Surfing was top of the list so I opted for this surf school having read excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. Rusty responded to my emails promptly and set up the lesson very quickly in what I considered a relaxed and indeed, "Californian" manner. Easy.... More
