Took 2 lessons, 1 with Tom and 1 with HK. Both were great. Started with safety and safety minded throughout and fun, fun, fun. Both guys were very patient and easy going. Both obviously love the sport and it shows. Highly recommend them for anyone.

Our sons(ages 11 and 9) spent the early morning hours with HK and Bella and had a fantastic time! The ground insrtruction was so great that the boys got up on their first tries in the water! HK was thorough, patient, funny, and professional in his teaching, and out in the waves, he and Bella helped the boys perfect their technique so that many waves were caught! Very exciting! We will definitely be return customers when we return to Newport Beach next year! Thank you so much, HK and Bella!

We had two 14 yr old girls eager to shred. Tom was encouraging and fun and helped them catch their 1st waves. He supplies boards and wetsuits. There's a short ground school before heading out to the beach. We were lucky and got good beginner conditions. Very happy with the experience.

We took lessons from Tom and his team with our two kids and had a great time! Tom, HK, Eric and Bella were fabulous, patient and encouraging. We don't see many waves in KS (where we are from), but we were able to actually get up on the boards before we left. Not only was it fun to learn to surf, but we felt like we made some new friends who are doing great things in the surf community for kids with disabilities, etc. as well. Also, Tom took pictures of us out surfing and sent them along to us the same day! I would highly recommend taking a surf lesson the next time you are in Newport Beach---and Tom is the man to call or email!!

Tom helped me, my wife, and our two friends have a great time surfing on Sunday. All of us were able to get up and ride a few waves. Tom's approach was great, making sure we focused on the fundamentals and that we had a fun time. I've taken other lessons, and Tom's was by far the best!
