It's January and the conditions were windy choppy and big on the outside. Dale kept me in the close to shore area where I was able to still get on some white wash, stand up and have some fun! He kept a close eye on the changing conditions and made the right decisions at the right times! I couldn't have done it without him!

Andrew was such a great instructor for my two kids ages 8 and 10! He was very patient & took great care of my kids out in the ocean, I felt very comfortable with Andrew teaching my children to surf. What a great time, they are still talking about the waves they caught. Wavehuggers is the way to go for surf lessons in SoCal.
