I have been coast to coast, but this was by far, the most memorable vacation yet. Me and my brothers paid for a two hour lesson, but the experience we were given was much more than that. Sam Cecil was very informational and patient. I would do it all over again next summer.

My fiancée and I booked a two-hour lesson as complete beginners, but both ended it standing. Our instructor, Levi, was great at explaining the technique and supporting us as we caught our first waves. Learning to surf is a great experience and I really recommend this surf school if you're in the area.

Learning to surf in California with this surf school was just amazing! The weather and the waves was really advantageous. Instructors are really nice. And we were lucky to have seen dolphins, that was awesome! Thank you so much!
