In town from NY and had only been surfing once and never caught a wave. Booked a two hour private lesson. My instructor was Evan. He was super nice and patient with me. Paddling and the pop up was the hardest part, you need to paddle hard to catch up with the speed of the wave. In the beginning I needed some power boost from Evan to get the right speed but with some good instruction I got the timing right and caught 3 waves by myself. He’ll also give you some cues and when to pop up so you don’t pop up too late and get caught in the wave. Private/semi private is going to get you attention you need as a newer surfer. I was out the next day by myself with a rental board. I’m hooked. Highly recommend them if you’re in town.

I had a great time learning to surf with Manwell and Jack! Both guys were super knowledgeable, super friendly, accommodating, and helped all of us catch waves! They made being out in the ocean very very comfortable, which speaks volumes since I'm someone who recently just got over my fear of swimming this year. Our whole group had a great time and everybody was able to ride multiple waves. Christina sent out a text the day before to let me know which beach to meet at and made the details very clear. After I learn a little bit more surfing on my own, I'm definitely booking more lessons with these guys!

Great lesson! 17 year old's group lesson had three other students in it. Instructor Jack was super. Lots of time in the ocean, lots of encouragement, lots of fun - and, he learned to surf! Highly recommend. Once we signed up, they texted which beach to meet at (I guess the beaches might change based on conditions). We had an 8:15am meet up at Manresa State Beach - a gorgeous morning (and what a beautiful beach!).

Ed was a fantastic coach for me and my 16 year. We are total rookies and caught countless waves. His surf tips were spot on and will serve us well, but his stories and broader wisdom helped make it a very memorable and enjoyable day. Highly recommended!

The whole surf camping trip was amazing! The staff was great, the food incredible, and I learned to surf while having an epic time. I also got to know some pretty excellent fellow campers.
