I booked a group lesson for my two older teens with a Groupon based on good reviews of this surf school, but in the end was disappointed. There were eight people and two instructors in the group. Within the first 30 mins, five of the kids bailed. I thought this would end up being great for my kids to get some more individualized instruction, but while the guys were in the water, there wasn't much teaching happening. Both my kids athletes and I expected they'd do well but when they returned to shore after almost two hours and I asked about the instructors they said they received very little instruction. The guys said things like, "you'll know when to stand up" and "you'll feel it." They thought they were "nice and funny" but that's not what I am paying for! My kids gave it a go and kept trying, and in the end were glad they got to give surfing a try. But I'd go to another surf school next time.

I had one of the best days of my whole trip in the US. Every single member of the crew was really nice and friendly. They gave me really good tips to improve my surfing (I had only done it once or twice before). They were also doing a special day with children with autism. It was amazing watching them work and see how much the kids were enjoying themselves. They are really profesional. I truly recomend.

Surfin Fire Surf School took my son and his classmates out for a day of life enriching surfing lessons. But these are not just any ordinary kids or instructors!!! The kids were all special needs and unsure about trying something new and scary. Every instructor was educated in how to relate to and comfort these children so that this experience was nothing less than a stellar one for my son and his friends. They are true professionals and do so much more than riding the waves.... They truly give happiness, Thanks

JP and his crew of surf instructors are awesome! Each year they dedicate a day to teach our student with Autism and other developmental disabilities how to surf. They are so patient and kind with our students. Our students LOVE it and and it is their favorite day of the year. Thanks Surfin Fire for your support with our school, organization and most importantly with our students!

My son just had a lesson from Surfin' Fire and loved it. He was standing almost immediately and enjoying every minute. Very patient teachers and knew exactly how to get the kids to be successful. Well done!
