Larry at the School was fantastic! He did a great job teaching the basics at the shop and then had us all surfing within an hour. We live in PA, beach in NJ. Picking up the same training soft boards at Ron Jon Ship Bottom this weekend. (Letting us use $50 coupon from FL lesson at NJ store.)

While in cocoa beach, FL, my daughter and I took a surf lesson from Larry at Ron Jon Surf School. He was the best! He was patient and courteous. This was a first try at surfing for us, so I really appreciated how he answered our questions in the beginning of the lesson and then later also encouraged us after... More

Taking surf lessons at Ron Jon's was worth every penny! Our family had the time of our lives!! All but our 9-year-old says surfing was WAY BETTER than Disney. We were lucky enough to have Larry AND Mike as our instructors (they grouped our family of 4 with 2 other kids). Larry and Mike are high-energy, super-passionate, so much fun,... More

We had the best experience with the Ron Jon Surf School! Summer was very helpful and informative – setting up the lesson and letting us know what to bring. As parents of a 13 and 15 year old, we wanted to find something we could all do together. Surfing was an awesome choice! Our instructor, Larry was phenomenal! He is... More

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.
