My wife has said she wanted to try surfing about 2 months prior. I surprised her by setting up a surfing lesson and Rachel had both of us up and going in no time! I'd highly recommend South Padre Surf Company.

Had two 12 year olds. One was very successful the other had some problems with popping up. The one who had problems still had a great time. They were so encouraging. I was really impressed.

Awesome experience. I admit I was nervous. We had 3 kids ages 9, 10, and 11 and one with autism. Kids were up and standing on boards almost immediately and kept at it for the full 3 hours. We stayed in the water with kids...More
