We booked here based on reviews and loved it. All four of us from ages 14-48 got up easily. Its not as hard as it looks. Brandon was our teacher and was fun and up beat encouraging us all the time and we all made it no prob. Two of us got up almost every time and were even doing little tricks on the board like jumping back and forth. We had fun and Brandon made it seem easy. He give us lots of tips and would tell us what we did wrong at times. After it was over, he told us places to eat and other things to do. We say him days later and he saw us talked to us and was very friendly. I think he really enjoyed his job and meeting and teaching people. We liked it so much we seriously discussed going boarding again and renting boards but it didn't work out.
