Great group of people eager to help you out from their storefront right across from where all the surfing happens. Hugo is a very cool dude and was an excellent instructor.

KIKU IS THE BEST!! Very patient and makes sure you are comfortable before going out into the ocean! We enjoyed it and was able to get on the board a number of times. Definitely rated highly for a reason! Great Job guys! - Kapil
