Our family had a great experience with Goofy Foot Surf School. Everyone was able to get up on their boards. The instructors were fun and gave just enough support to help each person succeed. We appreciated their help even more when we rented a board and try to surf independently. Hilarious! The subtle cues and support from the instructors are... More

My husband and I took surf lessons from Sean Prosser. It was our first time surfing and we had a blast. Sean was a great teacher. His simple instructions had us up on the board on the first wave we caught. His friendly nature immediately put us at ease and his actions proved our safety was his concern. Can't wait... More

Keith was our instructor and was awesome. Friendly, patient and really good at making you feel good even if you messed up. Took a group lesson with Keith then came back for private one for my son and I the next day, again with Keith. Highly recommend! All the other staff was great too, really made you feel welcome.

Love this place! Came back this year for more surf lessons and the coaches are exceptional - patient, knowledgable and fun. They guarantee you will stand by the end of the lesson and are good to their word. Mikey, Sean (sp?), and John were wonderful coaches over the two lessons my son took this week.

Keith was our instructor and he was great! As a matter of fact, everyone at Goofy Foot was great. My son (14) and I (41) took the group lesson. There were 5 in our group including us. If I could do it again, I would have done a private lesson for the two of us. The area of "Break-wall" they... More

Very good surf lesson and instructor was great and very friendly. Only probably was it is very crowded at the surf location but nothing they'd could really do about it but it's not ideal.

Had a great surfing experience with Keith, made surfing a lot of fun. Suggest going to 7am lesson before the crowds get out there. Goofy Foot makes surfing easy and fun.

Awful instructor! Keith was complaining the whole time about how dumb he thought we all were and he was very disrespectful. I don't know if he was having a bad day but there is no reason for him to make all his customers feel like bad people. He was supposed provide good service in a happy environment but all he... More
