Matt and Robert were responsive and easy to work with. Robert did a great job getting my 6-year-old daughter comfortable in the water and on the board. She caught probably a dozen waves and by the end of the lesson was riding a couple on her own! We'll be back.

Our family decided to do something different. With two adults who had never surfed and two teenagers basically starting out, we decided to do a group lesson. Robert was fantastic, taking his time with us, always encouraging, and making every effort to make the session fun and memorable, which it was! I highly recommend this.

My 17 year old daughter and I have taken surfing lessons a couple times before in Maui and Monterey and enjoyed it very much but Matt was by far the best instructor we’ve had. He was fun, encouraging, gave really insightful instructions and clearly loves teaching people to surf. If your in Santa Barbara he is the guy! You’ll have a great time!

As three total beginners (Dad and two teenage children) from England we all learnt the surf basics in some gentle surf under the expert supervision of Rob. After a brief 5 minute demo on the beach (golenta) we paddled out into the surf where Rob guided each of us onto our waves. The waves were small and we could paddle out with ease and not worry about a wipe out! Great fun and highly recommended.

A great experience! My daughter and I both got to ride the waves without no prior experience. Matt was awesome!
