This was a really fun event for summer. My eleven year old loved it. Mix of boys and girls, including a girl counselor too. Great fun. They start just in the water going up to the hips and if they're comfortable, they move a little further out. The kids get comfortable quickly. There were a lot of counselors. Would do... More

My grandson (15) was visiting from the High Desert with his good friend and I thought they should try surfing. They both love skateboarding and a morning at the beach could not be bad. The proprietor, Gerry, is the most wonderful surf legend in all his experience. He is way cool with the kids and very caring and instructive while... More

Took my 3 boys (16, 13, 10) for a surf lesson at Moonlight Beach while we were in town on vacation. I trusted the Trip advisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Gerry showed up promptly at our reserved time and had all the gear ready to go. After a quick board sizing at the van, we were ready to... More

I had the pleasure of taking a private surf lesson at Moonlight Beach with Gerry from Leucadia Surf School and had such a fun time! It was my first time on a surf board and with such great instruction I was able to get up almost every time we chose a wave. Gerry was an excellent instructor and inspired confidence... More

We had two instructors for a group of four. All four of us were up in our boards within 15 minutes of being in the water! Patient. Experienced. Solid instruction. Gerry was determined to make sure each one of us was successful! It was a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday! Kowabunga!

I took a group surfing lesson on the 21st of December 2014, and it was a great decision. I was in a group with three others who had never surfed before either, and our instructor Gerry and his assistant instructor Logan gave us all the attention and help that we needed. Even though the waves were very big and powerful... More

My wife and I took a lesson with Gerry on 11/11 and learned a ton from him. We had taken lessons before, but Gerry helped us to read waves and breaks, and gave us the confidence to just get out there and apply what we learned. It went well because we went out two days later with great success. A... More

We had two weeks with Gerry and his team during which my kids, ages 8&6 learnt everything they needed to get confident in the waves and to stand up and feel the lure of surfing ( be advised that not all 6 year olds will necessarily take to surfing instantly !!). My wife who hasn't surfed since the kids arrived... More
