We arrived at Witch's Rock Surf Camp as solo travelers not knowing what to expect. To our surprise, meeting people and making friends was extremely easy and fun. In fact, my roommate and I quickly became good friends (thus us writing our review together). Neither of us had ever traveled alone or surfed before, but those things did not seem to matter. The hotel guests and staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our entire trip. The highlight of our experience, however, was deifnitely learning to surf. Erlyn was our instructor for most of the week and he made our trip memorable. Other reviewers have said Erlyn is patient, kind, and thorough -- they could not have used better words to describe him. We admit there were times when we could have been more focused during our lessons, but Erlyn met us where we were and worked with us. By the end, both us were able to go out on our own and try surfing. We owe it all to Erlyn :). On the last day we had Josimar as our instructor. At first we were hesitant to have a different instructor, but Josimar was also a fantastic teacher and very professional. While we were at WRSC, we had the opportunity to meet some of the other instructors (i.e. J. Luis, Andres, Paco, and Axcel). They too made us feel at home and were helpful in providing tips on our surfing and were also extremely talented and professional. Overall, this was a fantastic trip and we are already planning a reunion trip with some of the other campers. We honestly can't wait to go back!
Thank you so much WRSC!
