Great introduction to surfing. My kids just love going there. We've been to the surfing school a couple times over the past couple of years. We just love the instructors they are extremely patient and very friendly. They even notified us on one occasion to tell us that the waves weren't optimal so we didn't waste our money or time...

My wife and I took a 2 hour private lesson at the Ron Jon Surf School in Cocoa Beach. First week of February. Temperatures of high 60s and water temp probably low 60s. Wetsuits were part of the deal. It was surprisingly comfortable. Surf was great for us. 2-4 foot waves with a nice long roll. Our lesson was at... More

Bailey Scott was our instructor and made this surf experience one of the best days of 2015 so far for me. Bailey was very professional and knowledgeable thru the whole lesson, after reviewing some water safety information we got to the beach and learned how to properly stand on the board and how to position our bodies to be better...

The Ron Jon surf school was amazing start to finish. The booking was easy and the staff was friendly and helpful. My 13 year old son had a two hour private lesson with Larry. Larry was fabulous and fun. We added the go pro option to commemorate his first time surfing Cocoa Beach and it was awesome. Video arrived in... More

Our 12 yr old daughter saw the ocean and wanted to learn how to surf. We called, worried about letting her try this. She met Nicole and she immediately trusted and looked up to her. All of us felt very safe and secure with Nicole's help! My daughter had the best day ever and is already begging to go back.... More

We had a group of 6 kids, ages 8-16, all in town for the holidays. The kids had Mike as the instructor and had a great time learning the basics of surfing in a 2 hour lesson while the 3 sets of parents enjoyed taking lots of photos. Kids were fitted with wetsuits. The surf boards also had the ability... More

This was my second time back to Ron Jon, and both have easily been the most rewarding surfing experiences I've had. Last week I had Larry, and really enjoyed working with him. We had some big waves (for me) and strong currents, and not only did he help me catch some good ones right off the bat, but he also... More

Larry and Nicole were fantastic instructors! My husband and our two boys, ages 6 and 9, went with a group of 5 other newbie surfers and everyone got up on their boards. Larry and Nicole were encouraging, patient and very knowledgable. The guys can't wait to do it again and I will certainly join them in the water next time!

My son and I set up a lesson, not our first, with Larry from Ron Jones Surf School. We have been struggling popping up and enjoying our surfing for several reasons. After some beach instruction we entered the water. Our experience was uplifting. Nothing but positive and highly instructive. Larry is a charm. His lighthearted, deeply experienced style connected with... More
