This Husband and Wife team were amazing. Our family of 4 did a 3 hr surf lesson with a group of other people we had never met. I was nervous at first but Rachel made me feel comfortable. We all received individual attention and we were all successful on getting up on our boards. I'm sure glad I didn't just... More

Rachel was our instructor (and owner). After our teens finished their 1 hr. lesson ($40) and got out of the ocean, they said she was awesome, very encouraging and tons of fun. That's a lot coming from a teenage girl! Got great pictures. Even of them dancing on top of the board while surfing. Great fun. Met someone who was... More

My family had a really good time doing the surf lessons. Rachel had my girls ages 9 and 6 up on the surf boards almost right away. She was great with the kids. They can't wait to try surfing again!!

If Rachel can teach 2 rednecks from Missouri to surf in under a 1/2 hour she can teach anyone. We had a blast and would do again in a heartbeat. The class after us had a bunch of younger kids and they were surfing on the first wave. We rented a surfboard from them for the rest of the day... More

It was a good time for my sister in law, sister and I. None of us had ever surfed before, and they were great at helping us learn when to paddle, giving a push to help out and they took pictures too. I also like that you can rent boards from them after taking their class. I really enjoyed it... More

We had five "never -before" surfers in our party ranging in age from 11 to 62. We had a blast. We took the one hour surf lesson and believe it or not---we all SURFED! At least we got up on the boards long enough to take some pics. Gene and Rachel are excellent instructors and took time with everyone in... More

I had been surfing when I was much younger & had obviously forgotten how tough it is... Gene & Rachel made surfing for my husband and I so much fun. The beach wasn't crowded and the surf lesson was small enough that they had one-on-one instruction with each surfer, multiple times. They want to ensure you have fun, and enjoy... More

They all did their best to ensure we all did our best and had a great time. I would recommend... More

Now I was not even remotely good at this but I managed to stand up a few times. I am defiantly not physically fit however, standing up is more about flexibility than strength. The awesome thing was that the instructors gave you feedback right when you were doing it. I could of never learned as fast or correctly by myself.... More
