Julio and Hectar were both very knowledgeable and patient with our family. They made sure we were prepared with the skills we needed before we got in the water. It was also very nice getting picked up and dropped off.

I was an absolute beginner and yet this morning after just 2 hours I was surfing! I was able to stand up and surf three or four waves. Julio was very patient and supportive. I definitely recommend it.

Julio was awesome, my brother and I had little or no surfing experience, but Julio got us standing up with his capable and confident instruction. We both had a good time and I'd recommend his lessons to anyone!
