We were visiting Santa Barbara from the UK with our 7 and 8 year old children. We had a surf lesson with Marc and everyone loved it. My youngest was standing on his surf board straight away and my daughter pretty soon afterwards. A great success- thank you!

My wife set up a father-son trip to Santa Barbara and signed us up for surfing lessons. Pablo and Rachel were fun and helpful teachers. They kept us focused and we had some success by the end of the class. Great memories for us both.

Really good experience surfing in Santa Barbara with great instructor's. We came by car and changed location during the session, but that just gave us the opportunity to see more of the great beaches.
