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

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

I'm too put of shape but my niece and nephew enjoyed it to the hilt. Niece didn't like carrying her board, but her uncle made sure she knew it was all up to her. Just order pics that were taken back in June that the owners take out in the water with the "students".

took my two kids to the South Padre Surf School, surf camp. overall it was a very positive fun, experience. the instructors are friendly and very enthusiastic. things were a bit unorganized, but these are surf instructors not bankers. the camp had a few too many students, but the instructor worked hard at spending so time with each.

My husband took our 2 teens. They had a blast. SPSC took pictures you could order and they were really good. Also included in the price is a free t-shirt.

This was by far the highlight of our trip. Surf camp was worth the 3 hours of time learning to surf on the island. They claim that everyone will be surfing by the end and that was true. The Gore's took time with every person and were out encouraging and guiding so there was not one kid that left without... More
