We set up a lesson for myself (a mom) and my 3 kids aged 16, 13, and 10. (2 boys and a girl) Rafael was our instructor. I have some experience surfing and the kids have very little, but are comfortable in the ocean. The lessons with Rafael were safe and fun. He kept things moving for everyone. He was... More

My husband and I took a 2-hour lesson with John. It was a very fun experience. Both my husband and I had never been surfing before! I highly recommend Goofy Foot.

For our Honeymoon we wanted to surf. We had Shawn (Sean?) who was a great instructor. He kept the lecture short and got us to the waves quickly. He earned 5 stars, I'm ranking 4 stars for two reasons. 1) Their initial customer contact and check-in needs a second employee, the poor front desk girl had to much going on... More

My daughter and nephew took a lesson here and it was a great experience. As promised, both kids who were 10 at the time, got up on their surf boards. The instructor was good and the kids had a great time. We will return this summer for another lesson.

My brother and I came in later in the morning for a beginner group surf lesson, which turned out to be a private lesson due to a slow weekday morning. Amadillo was an awesome and patient teacher. Really funny dude, and a lot of fun to be around. My brother and I didn't even realize that 2 hours were up... More

We had never been paddle boarding and decided to get a lesson. Marisa was recommended at Goofy Foot. It was outstanding. The place is easy to find. The staff are all very pleasant. The equipment seems fine (not that I would be an expert). Marisa was really a superb instructor. She is very pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. She had all... More

This a trip of many firsts for our family. My sons took lessons from Rafeal. He was an excellent teacher and demonstrated a great deal of concern when it came to teaching them the right way to do things. By the end of the adventure my youngest boy was fist bumping his teacher while riding a wave! This experience is... More
