Surf simply does a very good job of breaking down surfing into a science. Learning to surf as an adult seems to be a unnatural skill at least for me. I was looking for a surf camp/coach that could teach in a step by step manner and not just yell paddle, paddle, paddle. Surf simply has done just that. I... More

Second time with my family from New England to Surf Simply even more fun than the first!! After breaking down the sport and finding our weaknesses the first time around, we found ourselves much improved and enjoying Surf Simply even more this time. Combining consistent waves and a sandy bottom with great coaching, excellent food and amenities, and a great... More

Surf Simply probably needs another great review the way a golf ball needs another dimple. However, since I can't stop raving about my recent stay there, I'll do everyone (at least my friends) a favor and write my thoughts here so I can get it out of my system. This place is hard to define. It's a school--because you are... More

So I went for my first time ever this August - and I will definitely be a return guest! Coming to the resort, I was a beginner's level surfer never having surfed a day in... More

This was my third solo visit to Surf Simply. Once again, I am leaving with new life long friends and surf skills that I have only seen taught by these amazing people. From the moment I walked up the stairs at the resort and saw Maria (one of the awesome ladies who helps keep the resort squeaky clean and to... More

I just returned from my 3rd trip to Surf Simply. My only opportunity to go surfing is when I am at Surf Simply. The experience I had on this trip was fantastic. The progress I am made on the waves exceeded my expectations. As usual, the accomodations were very comfortable. The food at the resort and the restaurants were delicious.... More

Ru ( owner) has created a top down, fully comprehensive learning program on how to learn and or improve your surfing. Each of his team from coaches to support staff are beyond professional and more importantly you feel the enjoyment they get in what... More

Surf Simply honestly surpassed my highest expectations in so many ways. I expected to learn something about the sport of surfing, but I was amazed by the excellent teaching methods, the attentiveness and graciousness of the staff in general, and the thoughtfulness that obviously went into planning out every aspect of the program. Not only did I meet my goals... More
