We had an amazing surf lesson with Herschel! He is patient, kind, and an awesome teacher. As a first timer, I was nervous at the beginning of the lesson but Herschel made me feel relaxed and excited to learn! By the end of the lesson, I accomplished my goal of riding a wave to the beach.

Spending the morning with Herschel was a fantastic experience. I had never surfed before and was a little nervous but he made sure I was able to get outside of my comfort zone and rode my first wave. He will help you be less tense, feel more confident, and improve a lot in a little bit of time. He’s a great guy with a good sense of humor and I learned a lot. Highly recommend.

Herschel is an excellent teacher! He is patient, informative, very complimentary and an all around pleasure to hang with for a few hrs. We are a family of 3 on our first surfing excursion and we’re all able to stand and ride on our first waves, and we all improved from there as the day went on. I highly recommend Herschel or his associates for surfing lessons if it is something you want to do.

Hershel is the man. Not only taught us the basics of surfing and helped us catch our first waves in a few hours, but also taught us how to have fun while doing it. Fantastic experience!
