Adam was a great instructor. Entertaining, knowledgeable, and so excited about surfing. Started with on land instruction going over technical points. In the water he was constantly teaching us about the waves as they were coming in and gave feedback when we missed a wave or bailed. His instruction was so good that we won't be repeat customers... it totally... More

I had such a blast learning how to surf with my instructor, Nico. It was my first time surfing, and I can't wait to get back out there again. Nico was very patient with me, teaching me all of the tips and tricks until I was able to get up and ride a wave. Thanks again!!

I had a fantastic surf lesson with my patient instructor Kevin. I've surfed a bit before and the tips he gave me to improve were great, he was constantly enthusiastic and positive and I came away feeling amazing! I would highly recommend.

It was my first time surfing and our instructor, Kevin, made everything simple and easy. My friend and I were able to catch a couple of waves and that was awesome for a first-time surfer. Kevin was really fun and a great teacher:)

As someone who has never surfed, he took the time both on ground as well as in the water, to help, prep and instruct. He took the approach as a beginner and it help... More

You haven't experienced San Diego until you try this. The best part of our experience was the people who worked with us. Our instructor, Brandon, was such a fun instructor. He made us feel extremely comfortable and never embarrassed if we messed up. He is also a great teacher. We had no problem getting up out in the water and... More

As it was my first time surfing, I was very surprised that I stood up on my very first wave. Probably because Brandon Forrester was my instructor, very patient, helpful and funny guy. He properly explained surfing techniques on the beach, always answered all my questions, gave me feedback on my mistakes and was very positive at all times. I... More

Kevin was my instructor. I appreciated that we focused on surfing. He made small suggestions and corrections and helped me get a lot of practice. I'm definitely a better surfer than I was before.
