I had always wanted to learn to surf, so when the big 4-0 birthday rolled around, I wanted to celebrate by embracing this new adventure. Having never gotten up on the board before, I was hoping to at least be able to do that one time in the first lesson. Well, everyone in our 4 person, 2 hour lesson was... More

Lessons with Larry were perfect for my 12 year old - she was up on her first wave! She enjoyed it so much that we came back a second day! Waves were smaller the second day and she was slightly bummed. We'll be back, and mom will try too! School provides a tent for parents to relax under, or just... More

Great lessons from Larry, Mike, Claire and Dyln! This trip rocked and all the kids and dads had a great time! The instructors made it easy to learn how to surf and gave great tips to those who had surfed before. They really made it to seem easy for anyone to surf!!!!

Took lesson with son and daughter at Ron Jons. I got up in no time. they are Incredibly knowledgable and professional instructors. It was the best fun and hardest work out I had in a long time. Not an experience to miss - sorry I waited so long. Could have been a life changer if I was younger. Dads be... More

This was the second year in a row that my kids and I chose to visit Ron John Surf School. Last year was wonderful, and we had a ton of fun. That's why we came back this year. This year took the cake! This was the highlight and best part of our vacation to Cocoa Beach this year. Mike was... More

Two of my sisters, my daughter & I very much enjoyed our surf lesson. Our ages range from 18 to 45 and our instructor, Corey, was very professional and easy to understand. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to see what we were doing correctly and wrong. All four of us were successful at surfing for the first time.... More

There is nothing better than bonding with your family in the ocean! And having a school like Ron Jon's... and a teacher like Mike -- turned those 2 hours in the water into a lifetime memory this family will never forget! Not only were we cowaboonga'ing... we were really surfing! So much positive energy from the most rad teacher in... More

My son's first experience with surf camp was here just over 2 years ago. I found Ron Jon to be very well organized and have this whole experience down to a science. My son was 14 at the time so in the older group but still learned a lot very quickly and he bonded with a few of the younger... More
