Just came back from first visit to SurfSimply. I had very high expectations and they were exceeded. I knew they took a different approach to surf coaching. I didn't realize how good 'different' could be until they laid it out. I now understand WHY they're teaching the techniques and how to apply them. The instruction approach is only half the equation....the INSTRUCTORS make the difference. Harry was my coach for the week. He's got an immense amount of technical knowledge but he delivers it with such great enthusiasm and personality that you'll stay entertained (it is vacation after all). The other thing that jumped out about all the coaches is that they are very positive and good listeners. - Thanks guys!
I have to give thanks to Sarah and her staff for the great food too. Delicious.
Francella also did a very good job of taking a yoga novice and not breaking me in half. Every class put me in a better place for the afternoon surf.
