I gave my BD present taking a surfing class, I was happy that I did. Two hours of the private class for the beginner gave me a lot of fun experience by Matt who was talked, taught, and put my board floating waves. I was fearful of the begin then everything was fine after 20 minutes because I felt save by Surf School's instructor. I believed all instructors in Santa Cruze serving the same instructions even though this instructor comforted me. He was friendly which I could not find in cities. Rally recommend if you are looking for one who watches your back when you surf. I'll come back for sure!

My lesson was with Ryan and he is awesome! He was a human jet ski, getting me in position to catch more waves than I have ever rode in all my previous lessons combined. He gave instruction, but not too much and made me laugh the entire 2-hours. I'm definitely going back for more lessons!

We got a great surf lesson with the instructors here. Nothing but great things to say, helpful guys, wet suits are nice quality (and warm), very helpful instruction on the water. Both of my kids got up and are hooked!
