We signed up for a semi-private surf lesson for one adult and a child. They had so much fun, and they managed to ride the wave by the end of the hour session. A great instructor, and this is a must-do activity, a Californian experience!!

We saw some instructors at the main beach in La Jolla. They advised we could set up a lesson for four online. All payment and waivers were done online. It was effortless. You do need to set up lessons the day before. The instructor, Nat,...More

I really enjoyed the lesson I had. It was one on one and very personalized. My one complaint was that they didnt have full body wetsuit...the water was cold and that would have helped!

We arrived not knowing what to expect, were greeted by instructor "Mark" who it turns out is a local teacher. We were told all of the basics but then left our precious cargo (my son) in their care. I was nervous about any ocean camp...More
