Our six year old daughter asked if she could take a lesson. I checked trip advisor and found SOS. Lauren was great to work with and was very patient with my scheduling issues. Our daughter did the class time inside with Lauren and went on the water with Hunter. Both were super! The lesson was a total success. She had... More

We were in Orlando for a Disney World vacation and wanted to end our trip with a surf lesson in Cocoa Beach. Through an internet search I was able to find the School of Surf. Todd was our instructor and great to work with. After a short land lesson in the office/shop we were off on a short walk to... More

Took a lesson while on my honeymoon and couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was super friendly and my instructor, Hunter, was outstanding. I wish I had been staying in the area longer as I would have liked to take another couple of lessons. I HIGHLY recommend them if you're looking for a lesson.

After listening to my niece talk about learning to surf at a recent family reunion, I got the bug to try it. I grew up in SoCal and had friends who surfed, I didn't, and felt I missed out. Now, well into middle age, I wanted to give it a try. My wife on the other hand, was nervous. Lauren... More

My 11-year-old son and I took lessons at School of Surf, and it was a great experience. Todd is a nice guy and is genuinely interested in his customers having fun. Hailey was a great instructor. She was encouraging, provided excellent advice and helped make surfing seem pretty easy. We would definitely surf with them again.

Couldn't be more pleased with my lesson at School of Surf. Booked a lesson about a week in advance after researching surf schools in the Cocoa Beach area. After a well informed classroom lesson in rip currents, weather, pop-up technique, and sea life we walked a block to the beach and entered the surf. Lauren got this middle aged, 250+... More

On a recent trip to Florida, my wife and I made a special stop to Cocoa Beach to try and learn the basics of surfing. We decided on School of Surf and couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Hailey was fantastic and incredibly encouraging. We were catching waves within the first few minutes of being out there and... More

On our very first lesson, we rode waves! It was so incredible standing up on them while Lauren shouted encouragement that we booked three more days with the crew. On days 2-4 we really improved and learned about when to paddle, where to wait on waves, etc, and our instructor for those days, Haley (spelling?) was equally positive and helpful.... More

When I left Cocoa Beach after my lesson in Oct. 2013, I promised myself I'd be back! I lost over 100 pounds, still have some physical limitations, but I took another lesson (this time with Lauren) and I could do so much more than I did the first time... When she said "Do you want to catch another wave?" I... More
