All I can say is that I was catching waves in 10 minutes! Pedro is very patient and a very good teacher. I think he was born to surf and teach others to do the same. My wife was not even going to try surfing at all, but after some pro encouragement, she was in the water with a board, and she stood up on her first wave! Richard, the owner of the shop, was so generous and friendly he kept it real like hot steel! I would definitely recommend these guys to anybody wanting to learn to surf, or just get better.
