So I called and talked to them to set up a surf lesson but they no longer do surf lessons - they farm all the lessons out to other companies, individuals, who knows who you'll get! It's even on their website - - - not sure why they even call themselves a Surf School if they aren't teaching. Just be... More

My two daughters had a lesson and did great. The current was strong and they kept pulling them back before they floated too far away. The two hour lesson was just the right length and safety was a top priority. The location is secluded which is also nice. They were able to ride many waves.
