I've sent my two grandsons to week long summer surf camp two years in a row now and they love it. I was really impressed with how the staff worked hard this year to meet all the Covid protocols, keep everyone safe and still provide an awesome and supportive learning experience. I've been a local here for years and this camp as well as the school/private lessons have always been known to locals as a top notch operation. Highly recommended.

Down for a long weekend getaway from Utah. Have always wanted to try surfing so finally went for it. Asked a local surf shop who they recommended and with out hesitation referred Eli Howard Surf School. Great experience. Easy to work with, instructors were great and they had me “catching waves” in first lesson. Loved so Much asked if I could rent board and wetsuit for rest of the day to keep trying, which they did. Friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff! Would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. I will be back.

Now at Moonlight Beach, my 11 yr old g'daughter did 3 lessons and it was transformational for her. She is from mid-America with NO SURF, but Kate was patient and on the fist day G'd was up on the board and riding waves. We booked 2 more lessons and I was amazed at how proficient and confident she became. She pushed/rode her board out and had stamina that I didn't expect. Her level of self confidence soared with praise and encouragement from her instructor. Wetsuit & board was included with lesson fee. We are now planning for her to attend a week long surf camp next summer. I've recommended friends (one on 65th B'day) before, but this week was special.

It's no longer at Cardiff State Beach...but not gone completely. The State didn't renew their lease (boo) so that $400 per night "glamping" can be established. But the good news is that this GR8 local surf school, who is an asset to our community is still around. You'll find them a mile or so North at Moonlight Beach, so call them for info or a lesson.
