Our nine and 11-year-old girls did a group surf lesson here and loved it. It was easy to schedule, the instructor was very friendly and the groups were small. The girls got a lot out of this lesson and advanced their ability to surf exponentially.

Kyle was the best! Very attentive and great with the kids. He had them confident in the water and one of them surfing right away! Mom and dad didn't fare as well but Kyle was encouraging and really great! We would go back for sure!
