Meet at the indicated location on the North Shore at your selected time to meet with your surf instructor.

Your instructor and her dogs will first give you some on-shore instructions and safety information, and then you will head out into the surf. The waves will be small and fun perfect for beginners, children, and entire families; or come alone and receive personalized attention.

if you've always dreamed of surfing, now is your chance to get surf stoked for 2 full hours of instruction. If the fun of surfing isn't enough to entice you, most people encounter sea turtles and other beautiful ocean life while in the waves.

We offer multiple options to accommodate groups or opt for a more  personal experience with our private and semi-private options.

Fun and friendly

Lots of fun and friendly people. A quick and easy tutorial at the beginning without any non-sense meaning more time for surfing. They help you push the surfboard so you can catch a wave easier. For a beginner, that's all you can really ask for.
