Such a fun experience for my 7 year old daughter. This was her first time surfing since we're from Colorado and they had her up on her first wave! Daddy and her got to ride a wave in together and my husband said it was amazing! They're great with kids and have boards and wetsuits for everyone. Kylie loved it... More

This was a great place to learn to surf. My wife and I both took a private lesson and we each were able to stand up after our hour lesson. The waves were nice and a lot less daunting that at Huntington Pier. Keith, the owner, was super nice and our instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were able... More

Big thank you to Doug and Rocco. My kids (ages 9, 13 and 15) and I took lessons with Doug and Rocco and had a really good experience. Doug and Rocco were really patient and knowledgeable about surfing. Everyone was able to get up on their boards fairly quickly. My son, 15, took right to it and surfed the entire... More

I have been surfing for about seven years now, four of which have been at Corky Carroll's. This is literally the most fun and helpful Surf School that I have ever gone to. One of the best things about this camp is the social environment. Keith is a really easy going, helpful, and kind leader. He has helped me with... More

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.
