We signed up for private surf lessons for our group of 8. Ron and James did an awesome job working with all of skill levels and one very hesitant teenager. Not only did our entire group stand up we were all able to ride multiple...More
I can't say enough good things about our surf instructor Jill and this company. My family was here visiting me and before we knew it, they had one day left and we hadn't done a surf lesson yet. We called up Beach Boy Hale and...More

Jill very quickly taught me the...More
