My husband and I had a surf lesson with Ben while we stayed in Santa Teresa recently and it was a highlight of our vacation. Ben (owner of Nalu) picked us up at our hotel and drove us up to Hermosa Beach (about 10 minute drive) for our very first surf experience. He was chatty and friendly and put us at ease right away. I was pretty hesitant about learning to surf and was basically just going along because my husband wanted to try surfing. At first I was very tentative and didn't feel I could be successful in getting up on a surf board, but Ben was so patient and clear with his instruction, that after a couple of tries, I was surfing! Ben was very encouraging and, like I said, so patient that it turned something that I was sort of dreading into something I felt confident and excited about and really enjoyed. I highly recommend taking a surf lesson through the Nalu surf school as part of your experience in Santa Teresa!
