What an amazing experience for adults and kids! Would highly recommend if you are traveling to the area. Russell had my son standing on the surf board in no time! He was an excellent instructor and patient!

One of the coolest couple hours of my whole life. The staff was super friendly, everything went seamlessly. A special shout out to Eduardo, my instructor who was knowledgeable, supportive and so fun. Another shout out to the nice Irish instructor (whose name I can’t spell) for keeping me key safe :) 100% recommend.
