I have written only one other review on Trip Advisor - only because I rarely feel strongly enough to do so, and this experience was so good, it warrants highlighting.

I am 57 and my sons are 25. None of us have ever surfed. We had a private lesson with Evan. It was an awesome experience. He was patient, encouraging, experienced. All of us were able to get up on the board.
