Beginning my first time even touching a surfboard, I surfed in the beginner class with Larry as my instructor. The class was amazing and he taught very efficiently by explaining in detail and then going back and hitting the main points. He was so friendly and laid back that it made me relax and not worry about wiping out. I... More

The Instructors were so much fun and made surfing a blast. They were great with helping my little sister and after an hour I could surf on my own for the rest of the day!

I had such an amazing experience! This was my first trip to Florida and Mike and Nicole made sure it was extremely memorable. You guys rock! I will be back.

My family visited Orlando from Chicago this summer to see the attractions but this was the highlight. My husband and my sons, (ages 19 & 22) took their first surf lesson ever. What a Blast! Mike, Nicole and Meghan went out with their group. Mike stuck around mostly with my guys and was just as determined to get my husband... More

I am updating my review from last year as I am not happy with the $80 price increase. This is a great school and my kids had a blast but the huge jump in fees from last year made it impossible for my kids to do more than one week. Plus it states 1 instructor to 4 kids, but my... More

I took a 2hr surf lesson for my son at that Surf School. Amazing ! The instructor, Mike, has been fantastic. After less than an hour, son was able to stand and take a wave. Mike has been fantastic at coaching the group with the ABC of good surfing and making their life easier. He has a very good approach... More

We live in Kansas and have absolutely zero surfing experience...my kids have never even water skied. I was astounded that all three of my rather non-athletically gifted daughters (we're more into the arts) were able to stand up surf in just a matter of minutes and enjoyed numerous rides on the boards. The two hour lesson had about an hour... More

The staff there are very nice and pleasurable to be around and all of the surfers are highly decorated professional surfers that know what they are doing. I took lessons with Mike and I highly recommend him. Very relateable and knows how to teach fundamentals to all ages. Very nice and fun guy.

My daughter had a 2 hour lesson with Larry, and she and I both are thrilled with the experience she had. My daughter has autism, and her balance and core strength are not the best. When I explained this to Larry before the lesson, he was very reassuring and told me how Ron Jon Surf School was instrumental in starting... More

My daughter and I had the absolute time of our lives. The instructors, Larry and Meagan, were enthusiastic, patient, and safety conscience at all times. As a parent I look for bonding moments with my children and as a retired military veteran I seek an adrenaline rush. At Ron Jon surf school I got both at a very reasonable price.
