All of the staff were friendly, flexible, and made us feel at home. Freddy was a great instructor - you could tell he knew his stuff and had been surfing for many years. Highly rate this experience and would recommend this to everyone.

Just like their website states, everyone can surf. My husband, 20 yr old son and 16 yr old daughter all took a two hour group lesson and all 3 were successful! They had a blast being able to stand up in the board and surf.

Probably the highlight of our trip. David was outstanding at teaching & assisting us throughout the lesson. My son and daughter now want to get a surf board and we’re 3 hours from any waves back home.
