We found Sergio's surf school on Trip Advisor and so glad we booked a semi-private with him. My husband and I booked a 2hr lesson with Sergio for $95pp. He was exactly what we thought: down to earth, patient, and friendly. He had long sleeve rash-guards for us which are a MUST. During our 2 hour lesson, We were getting... More

Me and my 4 year old daughter visited and planned surf lessons with Sergio. Well let's just say we both loved it so much and the amazing video and photos his wife did are the best keepsake we have from our trip of both of us surfing. First try and I was up with his instructions and rode the wave... More

We booked a surf lesson plus romantic photo shoot with Sergio and Carly. Overall, our experience was fantastic! Sergio was so patient with my husband and I. His instructions were very clear and I was able to surf on my first try :) The only thing I wish is that we had more time to surf and a little more... More

I booked the 2 hour private surf lesson for my two girls. They both had a blast! I could not believe how he was able to teach these kids from Minnesota how to surf! The 6 year old was hanging 10 in no time! I highly recommend!! We bought the CD with the photos as well.

Patience, willingness, and genuine...Island Style. My Grandson and I wanted to have surfing lessons and ended up meeting Sergio and his wife Carly who not only "made" our trip, we also surfed with sea turtles. We're from southern California with water normally at 65 degrees, surfing at the North Shore in 80 degree water was amazing. There are other good... More

My husband and I signed up for surf lessons with Sergio and had a great time! I had never surfed before, and my husband used to surf a lot--but hadn't done much in the last 10 years. He and his wife were on time when we met up for the lessons, and very friendly! Sergio was so patient and informative... More

Sergio has to be one of the most friendly, easy going, upbeat people I have ever met. Super patient, big smile all the time, really makes the day fun. Carly is every bit as warm and friendly and handles the pictures, video, and logistics as well as being a great surfer herself. My son and I went surfing with them... More

Sergio and Carly are beyond belief! They work on your schedule. My son went surfing and I did stand up paddle, both of us had an excellent time and were pleased with our lessons. My son got up his very first time and rode many waves in, I was able to paddle without tipping in the water. Anyone who wants... More

My mom and I visited the North Shore over New Years, and wanted to learn to surf. We were lucky enough to have found Sergio and Carly. They are truly outstanding, and by the end of your first lesson you'll be standing up. It was so much fun we went back a second time. Thank you again, Sergio and Carly,... More

Totally Awesome!!! Fantastic Instructor!! I cannot say enough good things about Sergio and his wife Carly! They were amazing! My daughters are ages 10 and 12. They had never been surfing before. Sergio spent some time on the beach instructing them and then it was off to the ocean. My girls stood up on their very first wave and on... More
