From start to finish our experience here was excellent!

Larry ROCKS as an instructor! Informative, knowledged, witty, entertaining, and most of all he truly cared about everyone having a great time!

We will be back for more lessons!

Its well worth the money!

“Great surf school for all skill levels”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

My kids and I were happy repeat customers to Ron Jon's, my daughter and I having had lessons there back in 2009. They're still a great place to learn how to surf. We're no longer first-timers, and our instructor, Mike, was able to gear the lesson to fit our skill level as surfers. We had a great time, learned a lot, and will be back again next summer. I highly recommend Ron Jon for anyone wanting to learn how to surf or how to improve on their skills.

“Wonderful instructor for kids!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had Larry as our instructor (not what I pictured a Larry to look like). He looked exactly like a surfer. Skinny, long blond hair, slow drawl. We had him as an instructor about a year ago and our kids loved it so much they wrote a book about him (in kindergarten). He was VERY patient with our kids. We had scheduled classes for two days. Unfortunately, the second day was very calm. But despite the lack of waves, Larry kept the kids entertained with tricks, stories and games. Can't believe how well my kids did in 1 lesson!!

“Ronjons surf school was 2-thumbs up”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Instructor Mike was great. He had me (40's) and 2 daughters (16&9) up on the board and riding waves within the first hour. The 2-hr lesson runs $65.00 and we had a great time. Well worth the money. I would recommend the 2-hrs so the instructor can assist with fine-tuning foot placement and wave selection among other things.
Only thing is there are 3 or 4 ronjon buildings. Retail store, rental surf shop, surf school, etc. we ended stopping at 2 building before getting accurate directions, but no big deal as the buildings were all within a couple blocks of each other.
