You just have to try surfing with the Willis Brothers. Great instructors, all of us got up on the board, even our youngest and a few of us got to catch waves on our own. Tried it before with other instructors and never seen such great progress in such a short time!!! This is the guys to learn from! Easy to setup the lesson via phone and great prices compared to others.

I was able to get up and ride my very first wave on a day that most surfers would have stayed out of the water. Waves were anywhere from 8-12 feet and I even saw one surfer who said "today is not a good day to try for your first time". I "ripped" the waves according to Michael. He was very calm and spoke with so much positivity. The confidence he had in me to be successful was unbelievable. I will never forget my first surf I had in Oceanside CA with Michael Willis!

I spent four consecutive early mornings with Milton off The Strand in Oceanside. On day one he had me standing on the board and riding waves into shore. By day four I was paddling out myself, picking my own waves, and riding long into shore with turns and high fives along the way. Milton was professional, encouraging, helpful, and safe at every lesson. He really knows how to break down the basics and will help you discover the beauty of surfing. The Willis Brothers are special dudes from a special place. Surfing is life in Oceanside and these guys can help you understand why. If you're looking for a positive, safe, and warm introduction to the local sport then I strongly encourage you to spend a few hours with Milton and/or Michael.
