Want to take surf lessons? Look no further because Marcello is the best! My 5 year old daughter says she want to be a surfer when she grows up, and has been begging to go surfing. So we booked a family lesson with Marcello to do during our vacation. First off, his communication with his customers is impeccable! He always called or text when he said he would with whatever information we needed to have for our lesson. When we got to the lesson, he was so patient and kind with our daughters (ages 5 and 7). Once we got into the water, he was so good and kept reassuring me (the mama) to have fun and focus on learning to surf myself because he had my girls taken care of. Well both of my girls were up on the first wave. His instruction is clear and he is very knowledgeable. He was so kind with our daughters and instilled confidence in them (not only about surfing, but also just about being in the water). Our family of 4 had such a blast and we all agree that our surf lesson was the best part of our vacation!

Highly recommended opportunity for anyone who is interested in having fun and giving surfing a try.
This review was based upon a 2-person combined lesson my 17yr old daughter and her friend while visiting the area.
Marcello is an excellent teacher. He takes the time to connect with the students and explains the basics before getting into the water. Once in the water his students listen and respond to him in excellent fashion. Low pressure and a wonderful life lesson/experience while visiting the area.
Communications with Marcello were excellent and he relayed all relevant information needed to plan the lesson in Boca Raton ( 15 miles and 45 min north of Ft Lauderdale with traffic) via voice and text. If lessons are in Boca, pay the $20 all-day parking option at the South Pavilion.

Parents/family can bring a folding chair or beach towel and enjoy time on the beach as well while watching others learn. Trust Marcello, relax and have fun.

Very worthwhile and strongly recommended.

Trying to surf has always been on my bucket list, and today (at age 60!) I finally took a lesson with Marcello. What an encouraging and patient instructor! I had a blast and learned so much about the whole sport. Thank you Marcello for a wonderful and memorable experience. I can’t wait to try it again!

We organised a two hour lesson with Marcello, to give our 8 (boy) and 9 (girl) year olds a taste of surfing. They are HOOKED!
Marcello was kind, patient, enthusiastic and professional. He had them surfing from the first wave.
If you're in the area, spare two hours for this amazing experience!

Thank you for taking the time to review your children's surf lesson! Surfing is an amazing experience, and we also think it is the best time spent in the area as well! We are happy to hear they are HOOKED on surfing and we were there to help them catch their first waves. Here's to a lifetime of surfing many waves!

I just wanted to write so people could see that this is definitely a good thing to do if you are here for vacation and looking for something fun and different to do! Me and my other six friends came n have never surfed before and Marcello was very patient and understanding and by the end of the lesson, everyone of us had surfed at least two waves! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!! Thanks Marcello!!

Thank you for taking the time to give your surf lesson an excellent review! Your review does help people know the wonderful service they will receive, and the fun time that is possible during their vacation. Groups of friends can have so much fun surfing together! Marcello is a patient surf instructor, and very successful at teaching everyone, at different levels, in the group to catch waves! Thank you for recommending EZride Surf School!

I brought both my daughters to Ft. Lauderdale for the Christmas break and I left a message on their website saying I would like a lesson for all three of us in the next day or two. Within a few hours they called us back and we booked for the next day. Marcello came right in front of our beach side hotel for our lessons. We all had a blast and wasted no time hitting the surf. Both my daughters introduction to surfing 11/15 years old lived it and will do it again!

This was a great lesson for three beginning surfers. All of us were able to catch waves and Marcello was an outstanding instructor with a unique and great personality. He starts with a brief lecture about the philosophy of surfing as a way of life and shows you everything you need to know to get started. It was a fun and entertaining experience

Our teenagers had surf lessons on Pompano Beach with Marcello from Ezride Surf School today. The entire experience beginning to end was perfect. Marcello was accommodating, took his time, was patient and both kids were up riding a wave the first try! He helped us appreciate the sport and the ocean. Don’t bother going anywhere else, he’s the best!

We were lucky enough to be instructed by Marcello for our very first lesson-it was an EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE!!
Marcello was kind, friendly, professional and extremely knowledgable. With his excellent instruction my friend and I both stood up within 30 minutes of being in the water.
We are hooked-by far the best part of our vacation!!
Thank you Marcello for such an amazing time!!

Marcello was extremely nice and friendly. He was also very knowledgeable about surf, and very patient in helping my boyfriend and I getting accustomed with the surfing basics. Within the first 30 minutes of the lesson in Boca beach we were both standing up on our boards and catching waves! Strongly recommend him for beginners like myself. The lesson was very reasonable considering that he spent 2 hours teaching just the two of us. Tip: he supplies rash guards but still wear lots of sunscreen and be flexible about the time of the lesson, he will call the day of to let you know when the best waves will be.
