I had some questions so emailed a couple times and called a couple times. They responded very timely and answered the phone each time. They were very helpful and explained things to me. It's...

I signed up with San Diego Surfing School for a total of 8 lessons and had a blast every lesson. I got all sorts of tips from... More

Andy answered my text messages on Christmas Day and set us up for a large family surfing lesson on December 26th with Bryan and Adam. Everything was well arranged - they even hauled all the gear for us - and a good time was had by all.

My large group of friends were staying in a house down the beach and I was in charge of entertainment. My first thought was, of course, surf school.

It was a great activity, as the beach was very clean/safe. The wet suits and boards were down at the beach and thanks to the help of Drew, I... More

We are a family of three and had a fabulous private lesson with Alex. We initially went to their shop to pay then walked down to the beach( around 10minutes) to meet up with Alex and get our wetsuits on! They have cool boxes that you can leave your belongings in and it felt very safe to do so. They... More
