Amazing experience

This was amazing!! It was my first time surfing, and Mike the instructor was super friendly and gave easy instructions that had us surfing in no time! I would definitely recommend this to anyone
Totally rad

Loved it!!! Never surfed before but everyone from the start at the office to the water with Mike were great. Mike is so much fun. He really cares and made sure we all got up. Thanks Mike.
Good class but be wary of the rocks

The instructor was great, and he took the time to help us out, especially when one of us was having a harder time. One downside had to be the rocks where we went surfing (our location was at cove park). We were given water socks, but still managed to get some cuts and one of us hurt our foot pretty bad. So just keep that in mind. The unexpected surprise was seeing some sea turtles! So definitely keep an eye out for them so you don't accidentally step on them!
Great experience!

Terrific teachers and so warm and welcoming to our crew of teenagers!! Everyone got up again and again and they all felt so supported and cheered on the whole lesson. You all spent time talking with the kids in the water and making them all feel at home. AWESOME vibes all around and the BEST experience. You guys helped make this a trip of a lifetime!! THANK YOU!!

Just OK
, Aug 2021
Our experience was so-so. The instructor took our group to an area that was somewhat rocky....while there were much better places with fewer rocks and better waves nearby. Other groups nearby were getting waves all the time....even with other instructors from the same school....we always seemed to be too far out. Only caught 1 wave the whole time. Most of the time was spent on shore...that's fine I guess, but we only spent about 50 minutes in the water. Boards were big clunky single fin foam, kinda beat up...Staff was were poor quality...very few of them because we had very little worth capturing....the one time we did get a photos...sorry guys we had a better time a couple of days ago at another school....better location in the water further away from rocks, many more waves to ride...we caught about 5 good ones...and great pictures....

Our family had a great experience surfing and Sean was an excellent instructor! Great memories made!
Good for a first exposure
, Jul 2021
There was conflicting info between the 2 instructors on where to be on the board. The location was crowded with other learners in the central part of the cove where most of the nice waves were. The instructors were great with the kiddos but the flip side is that they had less bandwidth to assist the adults who are also new to surfing. There were no clear individualized feedbacks/ instructions on how to get the techniques down better or what could be done differently on the next try. We were literally just asked to try again. It was pleasant for a first time but could have been better structured for the adults who needed help. It was great for the kids since they were lighter and could balance well on the board. Bottomline :This course is great for a first exposure to surfing but instructors need to provide individualized feedbacks for those struggling to get on the board.
