I never tried surfing before and actually, it was difficult than I expected. But thanks to the great instructor Noah, I enjoyed and had great time :) He was really kind and helped us a lot.

Noah will have you and all of your friends surfing in no time. Just follow his directions and have a positive attitude and you'll be riding the wave
