Both my wife and I had our first surfing experience with them on Saturday. I went back for a second round Sunday. Wonderful family business with caring instructors. Easy shower after your time in the ocean.

My husband and I booked a semi-private lesson and had Skylar as our teacher--it was a fantastic experience. Neither one of us had ever surfed before so I was doubtful we'd have much success, but with Skylar's help we were able to get up almost immediately. He was the right blend of laid back and encouraging, and even towed us... More

Would highly recommend! My 12 year old, 14 year old and 19 year old took a lesson together with Uncle Bryan's son Cru. Cru got all 3 of them surfing in less then an hour! Each one of them said it was "the best thing EVER." We walked up and booked a lesson on the spot. Uncle Bryan extended his... More

We booked a private lesson for our 4 kids ages 4-9. Our 6 year old is a brain cancer survivor and has some physical handicaps as a result. Uncle Bryan hooked up our 6 year old with Cru and our 4 year old, who overestimates her swimming abilities, with Skylar. These guys are out of this world! They coached our... More

My husband and 13 year old daughter took a lesson just before Christmas. My mom and I observed. I was very impressed with the instructor and with Uncle Bryan. He loaned us beach chairs to sit and watch them surf. And was nothing but hugs and smiles. This is where you want to go to learn! I felt my child... More

I am 48 years old, never surfed, and they taught even me to catch some waves!!! My daughters (ages 13 and 15) had a ball and the instructor had... More

My 2 daughters and I spent the entire afternoon at this school. The instructors are dedicated and caring teachers. They explained carefully the etiquette and circulating patterns surfers need to observe for the smooth flow of all the surfers and paddlers in the lagoon. The teachers take good care of their newbies. No question is too stupid. We had a... More

After great instruction from Skyler and Michael, my 16 year old AND I were surfing by our second wave and the 10 year old was surfing by the the first wave. Great experience and family memory.

We booked on a whim because a friend told us to. The online booking was easy. The instructors were great. Kevin was friendly and encouraging and worked his butt off. My daughter's instructor surfed with her. Somehow we managed to get private lessons. Uncle Bryan was there to greet us and welcome us back. Heath takes great pictures for a... More
