Everything about our experience, especially for our oldest son who had the lesson, was AWESOME. Adam is a great instructor, great with kids, and our 9 year old son Jonah was up and surfing in no time. He had a total blast. We had no problems with booking, and opted for the photo package which I am glad we did... More

Booked a semi-private lesson for my teenagers and the instructor Wednesday was wonderful. Really encouraging as they tried to learn a difficult sport on a crowded beach. Highly recommend PSS.

Firstly I want to say that Kevin was just an incredible surf instructor. He was so enthusiastic and fun. I got up quite a few times in my first lesson, and he gave me really clear and helpful tips on how to improve. I enjoyed that experience so much. So it's a shame that the school itself has really awful... More

I had a great time! My trainer was Ryan and he was very knowledgeable and encouraging. The booking staff was also great and quick on refunding my money when I accidentally double bpoked through yelp and online. I will definitely be signing up for more sessions in near future!! Highly recommended to anyone who wants to give surfing a try.
