Great surfing lessons. Larry, our ultra-hip instructor, had us standing on our boards and riding the waves in under 15 minutes. A really friendly and easy-going guy, he also has tons of knowledge and advice about what to do, where to eat, etc. when in the Cocoa Beach area. And Summer was super helpful in the surf school office, helping... More

We had a spectacular lesson with Mike. He was perfectly balanced for my teen and us parents, and very hands on with my 10 and 7 year old. Everyone was able to get up and ride the waves! He even took pictures and video for us. Excellent customer service from A-Z. We all loved it, and we came back to... More

Friendly staff helped make learning to surf a good experience for myself and my two teenage boys. The waves were quite small while we visited Cocoa beach but the staff helped us to evaluate our options and gave us the option to give it a try it and reduce the cost if the waves were too small. We got lucky... More

My family and friends took a surf lesson early April. Our group of 8 was a mix of teens and far from teens, all from Wyoming, so we had no surf experience at all. Nicole and Megan were great! They were informative and patient. Some of the group picked it up well and some of us did not but we... More

My teenage boy wanted to try surfing. Larry was their instructor for the 2 hour session. He was entertaining and informative. My boys would go back any day.

We knew a little bit about surfing, but not much. Our teacher, Mike, was so enthusiastic and taught us well. We now know lots of new skills from our experience.

Actually, I can't remember how many people Larry has taught to surf, but it was a very impressive number and not a hint that the enthusiasm has dropped one bit. Having surfed before I still opted for a lesson as it made life easier on a day trip to Cocoa. Facilities are great and the following a safety brief it's... More

Family took a lesson with Larry morning before cruise. Booked it online a couple of weeks before we arrived. Larry had our son up surfing in no time. We were not as quick to reach success but Larry never gave up on us. Great organization. Highly recommend.

What a great experience! This was not my first time surfing but it was for my kids and their friends 1st. I enjoyed the lessons as much as they did and learned lots. Meagan and Larry were great with my kids (patient and very encouraging) and gave me some great pointers as well. They made it fun! My kids voted... More

The family was staying in Cocoa Beach before a cruise and wanted to try something different. I always wanted to go surfing so my kids decided to join. After emailing the Ron Jon Surf School we picked the 2 hour class on their suggestion. I was impressed because I thought they would try and push the 3 hour class. When... More
