I had a lot of fun learning to surf. The instructor was friendly and helpful. I feel there could have been a bit more instruction, but still got up many times and had a blast!

We were shown a 3 minute video on an iPad and then sent to the water. The video was well made, but it just wasn’t enough to give a real perspective on how to get up. “Three steps, push up, back leg, front leg...” I...More

Instructor was fun and inviting. Really felt good about doing the lesson. It was my first time on a surfboard and it was awesome. Really would have been lost without the instructor.
