School of Surf literally has made my dream come true! All my life I've wanted to try surfing. Thanks to the expertise, work ethic, and thoughtfulness of these master instructors, I succeeded on my first try. JOY!!!! Now I wouldn't even THINK of visiting Cocoa Beach without scheduling a lesson with Todd and Lauren at their School of Surf. Don't... More

Had an awesome time, and as older first time surfers all the instructions were age appropriate. It's not touristy and a bit off the main touristy beat which is a good thing!! We had a great time and definitely recommend!!!

Lauren was our instructor and the best we have ever had. Old or young she can get you to surf. This was the best place we have ever been to learn how to surf. Book early if goon during peak season as they get busy.

We booked an hour as first ever surfing lesson. Todd gave us good instructions on the safety and the technique. With his help, everyone was able to get up! This was fun! P.S. The school runs great kids program during the day. They have wet suites of all sizes if you don't have one.

Some background.. There were a few things I wanted to check off my bucket list before turning 40, which is in a month, surfing was one. I had no delusions of "blue crush" grandeur, expected it to be difficult and humbling but wanted to experience it properly. After a lot of research we settled on School of Surf in Cocoa... More

So you are in really good hands with these folks. Call them up, let them know your skill level and athleticism and they will make recommendations. These people are not out to try and get your money. The value you get out of these lessons was money well invested.They really don't need your money, to be frank. The owner use... More

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
