Paul's a fantastic and generous teacher! I'd never surfed before and he got me up on that board within half an hour. Everybody along the beach seems to know and love him. Also his dog surfs and he'll show you videos

Didier did a great job teaching our group. He had an approach that made it easy to pick up. All three of us successfully caught and rode waves during the lesson. It was so much fun I surfed almost every day after!
