From the middle of the Continent where there was no surfing growing up. I always wanted try. Finally, a trip to California....Gotta surf...Got in touch with Matt. He was excellent at choosing the right beach and the right time to fit into my schedule....Met Austin at Mondo's beach....GAME ON...got the basics...got coaching through the whole lesson...got up a couple of times....thrilling... Shaka sign!!! Bucket list check!

We had an excellent surf lession with Matt.
Quick introduction on the beach and a lot of time practicing in the water and on the waves. Great fun! Highly recommendable!

My wife and I booked a lesson on short notice while we were in Santa Barbara and had such a great time we booked another lesson the next day with the kids. Both were terrific - Matt was very accommodating with the short notice scheduling and the lessons were top notch for beginners. Also gave us some great tips on other things to do in Santa Barbara - don't miss Lizard's Mouth! Thanks again Matt.

We had an absolute blast surfing for the first time on Mondos Beach with Lovewater Surf School. Ian and Austin were so nice and patient.

The beach was beautiful where the lessons were given. My son, Corey, was able to get up and ride many waves in. Austin, his instructor, help him learn how to gag the waves and after a couple of tries he was up riding waves. Great experience.
