We had a fantastic lesson with Hypr. Started out with a surf simulator on land to learn the biomechanics of surging and ended with all of us up on our boards in the ocean. Great intro to the sport!

My little one and I took surf lessons with these folks. They were especially attentive to my young daughter who was a little timid at first. By the end of the day she caught four giant waves and now wants to be a pro surfer!
