This family of skiers and mountain dwellers went out with two parents, two 15 year olds and a 12 year old. Everyone got up, everyone had and blast and everyone commented what a great teacher Eddie was! Very patient, very clear and an all around great leader in the water.

Great time and they were super flexible with weather and some bad conditions to help us reschedule and get a great day on the water. Lucas and San were great with the kids as well. Overall a fantastic day in the water!

I took my cousins to learn how to surf. I already had some background from wakeboarding. San was our instructor and was very patient and insightful. With his guidance, we were able to get up very easily. He also made sure we were properly set up on the boards and continuously advised and gave tips on how to improve. Highly recommend.

Me and my husband found this school by chance while walking along the beach on a Saturday morning...and we can't be happier about It!!
We have met Kyle and Eddie and we will never forget them, you can really feel the passion behind the "job", they helped us from the beginning to the end, always cheering us up with big smiles and super good positive energy..
It was the first surf esperience for me and they provided surf outfit and shoes, i always felt secure and under their watch i really enjoyed the waves and the surf

A big hug from the Italians honeymooners

Great location! They were very helpful and the two hours was the perfect amount of time. They were very encouraging for all skill levels.

My kids took a semi private lesson with Waves. The instructor was able to cater the lesson to both my kids, even though one had been surfing multiple times and one has never tried it before. Both kids felt like the lesson was helpful and fun.

My teens loved the lesson. Best activity so far on our trip. San gave a great lesson and all three got up on boards quickly. They stayed out in water for two hours while my husband and I watched from the rock wall. There is a photographer that goes out with them to get close up pictures and you have option to buy afterward. Something to know beforehand: The lesson takes place at Kamala Beach and the surf “school” is actually a mobile vehicle that parks on the north side of the parking lot! Hwr, that seems standard. There were several other companies there with exact same set-up.
