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!!

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!
