First time surfing. Had Megan as our instructor and she was so rad! Very knowledgeable and a great attitude. She got everyone up on their board in no time at all. My daughter and I loved and will be down there surfing again soon!!!

Took a group of high school age Girl Scouts for a beginner lesson and they had a blast! Larry and Mike, our instructors, were super! Girls actually learned to surf during the two hour lesson and can't wait to go back! The surf school is top notch!!!

My daughters and I came here before we set sail on a carnival cruise. We picked up a few items we thought we would need on our cruise to the Bahamas.

Took 12 yr old nephew for two-hour instruction with Larry. Personable, courteous, and informative staff. So much fun watching nephew enjoy working with a professional to learn how to surf. Larry was a great instructor who communicates fantastic with both kids and adults. Nephew enjoyed every minute!! 180's, headstands, back flips and more; Larry made our Saturday morning perfect!!! Thank... More

We had Brit as our instructor for a private lesson and he was great, my wife who had never surfed before was up and going right away! Overall, great instruction and reasonably priced! The only down side is that the boards you use in the lesson cannot be extended for usage time, you have to bring them back up and... More

My kids (12G, 10G, 8B) came out of the water Totally STOKED. Dropin' in, Poppin up, and doing head stands!!! Mike and Larry are every thing you could imagine in a Surf instructor. EVEN a 250 pound dad got up! That would be me. Thanks Mike. Thanks Larry.

We decided to try surf lessons for our family and had a great time with Larry our instructor. He was patient and gave me the confidence to get out there and surf! I'm not the best swimmer either but he reassured me I could do it! If you've never surfed before I recommend this place and Larry. The staff was... More

My wife and two kids (12B/10G) just spent the week in Cocoa Beach. I booked private surf lessons for us all with Ron Jon Surf School. The first day we hit the water with Mike. Unfortunately the water was too choppy and the waves were not very welcoming. Mike quickly suggested we get out of the water, with the quote.... More

We had a great lesson from Larry. Family of 4, ages 12-48. First time for all of us and we all got up and some of us were doing turns and headstands. Larry was great with all of us even though we all learned at different paces. I can't wait to get back to Cocoa Beach!

We booked a semi-private 2 hour lesson for our family of 4. We had Larry to ourselves and despite none of us having surfed before; our boys of 12 and 10 were surfing within minutes! Us oldies took a little longer, but Larry guided us and we were soon surfing too 😀 Highly recommended
