My wife and I did a 1-hour lesson with Carol and had a blast. I highly recommend it. This was our first time surfing, and both of us were able to stand up and ride several waves. Carol was informative and helpful getting us to the right spot and picking waves for us. This was one of the best things... More

I booked a tour with North Shore Surf Girls with less than 48 hours notice. The booking process was super easy and I was sent very specific details on where to meet at the lesson time. Carol was a great teacher, really helped my technique, improved my confidence and went above and beyond what I would have expected for a... More

Like most guys, I'm not thrilled to be physically clumsy/incompetent in front of the opposite sex. I was extra concerned about this because I spent my career in a desk job -- not exactly the right way for a 57-year-old to get ready to learn surfing. But I still chose NSSG because of their intelligent and insightful website, and man... More

The three of us (two middle-age parents plus our 5 year old) signed up for the private family lesson. Carol took our son in first, and within a few minutes she had him standing on the board on a wave (with her on the back). We all rode several nice waves. It was so fun that we signed up again...

We took one of the two-hour lessons and had a blast. My girlfriend and I had been surfing maybe 3-4 times before we had our lesson with Carol. She did a great job of explaining the currents around the spot we surfed. She was personable and patient. Most importantly she did a good job of navigating the other groups learning... More

Carol and Alexis were great! Lesson on the beach before getting in the water and getting to experience what it's like to surf. They were super friendly and made sure that you had an awesome time. We got some great pictures too! They were accommodating and helpful. Plus, you can't beat a surfing lesson on a beautiful pristine beach on... More

NSSG staff are great! I booked an hour lesson for the noon time, but ended up switching to the 9 AM time. This time was perfect as it was easy to find parking and the beach wasn't crowded. Carol was great and helped me to get up on almost every wave! She was very patient and knowledgeable. I am hooked!... More

I am paddling...Carol says my wave is coming...She says I can do it, just remember to lean forward, I paddle more and I am up! I am actually surfing! The impossible happens. I had tried surfing before but I never got to catch a wave (Embarrassing for someone who grew up by the shore.) Before we went in the water,... More

Carol was fantastic. We showed up 15 minutes late and instead of going until the time we original had planned (9 till 10), she stayed for the 15 minutes we missed plus about 15-20 more! She was an amazing instructor and was very patient with us the whole time. We'll definitely be getting more lessons from her the next time... More

Our family booked a one hour surf lesson with North Shore Surf Girls and the experience ended up being a highlight of our vacation. I initially chose NSSG because they are woman owned (Carol was the 1st woman to compete in the Pipeline competition) and they have raving reviews. I am so glad we did! Both Carol and Gina were...
