We booked Sean every of our holiday for our two boys – aged 9 and 5. Sean was incredibly professional and informative from the get go. We booked from the UK and Sean was very responsive and informative by phone and email before we arrived. Sean’s attention to safety and detail was impressive. He was hugely knowledgeable about the water and tides and was able to make sure that we always had the best waves of the day. By the end of the 5 days both boys were riding incredible waves and had learnt more about surfing than anywhere else we had been. The progress was truly impressive. I would recommend Sean to anyone – he is second to none. You will have an amazing time and learn so much. We are so grateful we found him and the boys had a brilliant time. Thank you Sean!!

I have taken multiple private lessons from all the big players in WB over the past 4 years and my lessons with Sean trumped them all. He had me riding down the line, bottom turning, catching my own waves and he taught me how to be self sufficient. His pricing is beyond fair! He also taught my two kids aged 6.5 years to surf and had them both riding waves within the first few attempts of popping up. Sign up, get in the water and ride a wave with SEAN!

Sean was personable and warm every time we my him each of my kids took more than a few lessons' (even one with a broken arm). Sean and his crew were patient and knowledgable. The 6 kids he taught talk about surfing every single day! He did such a great job on teaching them about the dangers in the ocean that I felt very comfortable letting them rent boards and go out in their own! If you are deciding on who to choose, choose Sean. He truly cares and the student and has a love and passion for surfing and the ocean!

Surfing has always been on my bucket list and I was determined I was going to give it a go for my birthday this year. I was there on June 5th and had only booked for a couple of hours because that's all I really had time for. Plus, I didn't want to take a chance if I didn't like it. Turns out I didn't...I LOVED IT!!! Sean is an incredible teacher! He has the patience of Job. He's encouraging and works with you on your level and gives you confidence you can learn to surf and eventually do it on your own. He made sure he explained things thoroughly and that I felt comfortable enough that when the first wave came I was ready to at least give it a try. By the time the third one came I was up on the board and officially riding my first wave ever! I can easily see how people get addicted to this. I wish I had booked more time with him. I know if I had Sean would have had me ready for Hawaii before I left. :) Out of all the instructors on the beach Sean is the only one that is one-on-one. That is the only way to go with a sport like surfing. Any other way is too dangerous. His focus is on you and making sure you know what you're doing and why. His prices are very reasonable. I wouldn't go with anyone else. Sean is the best hands down. I have two daughters and when I go back he will be the only one I trust to take them out in the ocean and teach them. Can't wait to go back again!

As a birthday present to myself I wanted to learn to surf. I asked a few locals about lessons and Sean was the first name everyone said. Without a doubt he is a phenomenal teacher! His patience, positive attitude, and absolute passion to teach people to surf makes the experience memorable. He is your biggest fan in the water, cheering you on with a big smile. I'm positively hooked on surfing now and I met a fantastic person!
