Though it was cold, the swells were right, in the morning, and the waves were plenty. T-Roy stayed in the cold water to get my kids up on the long board, while in their wetsuits. Thanks Corky for getting us started and up on boards and into the water! We just need a lot more practice.

Had a seriously rad surf lesson with Todd on a beautiful May Day. Beach was empty, sets were spaced and had enough decent waves to finally get up! Todd was a great instructor and I felt totally comfortable with him. I'm so glad I finally tried surfing. It's probably one of the most challenging but most fun sport I've ever... More

I have been coast to coast, but this was by far, the most memorable vacation yet. Me and my brothers paid for a two hour lesson, but the experience we were given was much more than that. Sam Cecil was very informational and patient. I would do it all over again next summer.

My fiancée and I booked a two-hour lesson as complete beginners, but both ended it standing. Our instructor, Levi, was great at explaining the technique and supporting us as we caught our first waves. Learning to surf is a great experience and I really recommend this surf school if you're in the area.

Reserved a surf lesson for my son. Arrived a little before our appointment and instructor (Sam) was all set up waiting for us. The board and wetsuit are included in the price—and they have every size. After payment and paperwork, they were all set for a 2 hour lesson. My son had a great time and really liked the style...
