Better than my expectations, which were high after reading the reviews. The wetsuits and boards were provided. Great teaching! Jenny was fabulous. Teenagers and mother all had a great time! Worked with us to fit schedule. Really good service!

Our 13 year took her 1st surf lesson and loved it. Jenny kept based on how my daughter was progressing and challenged her accordingly. It was a great experience; one that we will certainly do again.
