Just returned from BSS and can't say enough about how great an experience it was. Our daily surf lessons were designed just for us with lots of one on one instruction, and our instructors worked their tails off to ensure that we had the very best surfing experience. Everyone was so welcoming and since the resort is so small, only... More

Not a lot more to say other than this place is absolutely epic...the accommodations were perfect: clean, comfy and really nicely appointed.
