We booked surf lessons two months in advance. Ric showed up at the designated time and place. He looked at one member of our group and said he couldn’t teach him to surf because the boards he brought could only be used by people 180 lbs. or less! He also said that he thought he was just too big to surf on any board! Nowhere on his website or in our communication back and forth was there mention of a weight limit! Surf lessons was to have been one of the highlights of our short LA vacation and it never happened. We were able to go to a surf shop and rent appropriately sized surf boards (with no mention of anyone being too big to surf) but had no instruction. Furthermore the way that Ric talked to the gentleman in our party was humiliating and condescending. I am both heartbroken and furious about how he handled this situation. Please look elsewhere for surf lessons! I wish I could have chosen zero stars for this review, but that wasn’t an option.

Ric displayed patience with my novice “surfers”. He made certain all were comfortable. A great experience was had by all!

Rick was excellent. We loved it. He was patient and by the end we could surf. Thank you for having this great option.

Ric gave my nephew a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Ric as an instructor. I have never seen Sam smile so big! I think Ric may have created a Surfing Junkie!
