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... More

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... More

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... More

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,... More

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!

While vacationing in Carlsbad we sent our kids here for the day. They had the best time and learned so much! Their staff is amazing and the program was just awesome! I highly recommend this to anyone local or vacationing in San Diego!

This school is great. I highly recommend it for the children, even if they never step foot on a surf board. My two never step foot on a surf board and they were standing on the first day. The staff are out of this world, they are polite, patient, and fun for the group. This school is a safe place... More

I'm from Texas, central texas at that, and have never surfed a day in my life. My family got to vacation here and found this place and signed me up. I did the camp from Mon-Fri 9-12 In roughly 10 minutes these guys had me up on a board and hitting the waves. Great, friendly, hilarious staff that not only... More
