I found this surf shop from a post on Trip Advisor. I wanted a surfing lesson for my daughter and we were staying in Carpinteria visiting friends. What started as a short trip turned into a longer one once we experienced this great little beach town and the personal lesson that my daughter got from Rob, at A Frame Surf Shop. Rob and his brother own this little shop right off of Santa Claus Lane. What a gem I found! Rob is just what you would hope for in an instructor - he listens, is patient, and most importantly, you can tell he loves what he does and has that special connection with the ocean and a respect for surfing and the experience it can give someone. All I can say is that we will be back. There is a summer surf camp and we already plan to spend a week here with Rob and his team.
