Had a great time learning to surf-the instructor was super chill and explained everything thoroughly. I was able to get up on my board the first try!

Got the private session with Fernando. The instructor was really helpful, and really informative in everything you need to know to start surfing! I could get up first try! I'm really thankful cause I got really good instructions and tips!

The instructors were fun, patient and helpful. They even leant an extra wetsuit to my little one so she could play in the cool water. Would definitely do it again!

Great team. Friendly, professional, and wasted no time once we got out in the water. We went over a few basics on the beach and then got straight to surfing. Made it very easy to learn because he set me up perfectly for every attempt. Was riding waves in no time!

Very friendly and funny team, good advice upfront and a good coaching during the lesson. We never felt alone ;-) Did I say that the waves were 5-9 foot high? We come back

We loved it. My 14 year old son was surfing on his second try and got at lot of surfing in. The instructor was extremely helpful and even got me (a 50 year old mom) surfing. We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend it. We did the semi-private lesson.

Great experiance. The waves were rough the day of my lesson but my instructor Preston did a great job looking after me and helping me out. Was really supportive which kept me going when it was tough. Would love to come back. Definitely recommend it.

It was a wonderful experience of my daughter. She has always wanted to learn to surf and in the one lesson was able to stand up and surf!! The instructor was friendly and competent! My son is now bummed that he did not sign up for lessons. We will next time. Thanks!
