Reached out to Ash for some beginning lessons for surfing and we had a great experience. Ash was very responsive, reasonably priced and easy to work with through the whole experience. He met us where he said he'd be at the exact time. He provided clean, safe equipment and a very experienced instructor (Josh) who was great. We had a great day of beginning surfing and it was an overall great experience! I would highly recommend going with these guys. They were patient and safe. We got up and surfed a handful of waves our first time being out in the water. Having now surfed back in San DIego since then, I'd say they must have done a great job since the surfing here has been much harder. I think they really picked ideal conditions for beginners, which is definitely what you want in a beginning experience.

Had the opportunity to take a 2 person private lesson with Ash and it was awesome! Man this guy has the best energy and attitude. Was able to to catch some waves and had a blast learning how. Definitely felt like we were in safe hands knowing all the permits they had to get to teach. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. Seriously book a lesson you won't regret it.

Ash and Chris were amazing! My son who is autistic and has balance problems. I mentioned that to Ash. I was to happy to see my son riding a wave. Chris said “I’ll grab your GoPro and film you both. Go have fun dad.” We got some great pictures and video of this special time. I couldn’t have picked a better set of instructors. We stopped by a few days later to snorkel in the same area. Ash saw us and immediately came over to say hello.

I have tried to learn to surf in the past with bad results so I was a little intimidated by the sport. I took a lesson with an instructor named Ash and it opened the sport for me. He was very thorough and patient with instruction. By the time we hit the water I was relaxed and having fun. After our lesson we hung out on the beach and got to see how some of their other instructors handle clients. One group was a bunch of kids so the instructor was fun and goofy. Then an individual with a disability and he was smiling ear to ear when he was out on the water. I would recommend this group to anyone as my experience was great.

The instructions took time to show me how to use a surfboard. We started on shore with them showing me the basics, then we were in the water actually surfing.
