  • "I couldn't have asked for a better experience! It was absolutely my first time ever being on a surfboard and my instructor was knowledgeable and patient! I felt safe the entire time and never got too frustrated. Thanks to excellent coaching I stood up a few times before the end of the lesson! I was beyond excited! Would definitely book another lesson with them!"
