They were great with our kids. Everything they did helped my kids quickly learn how to surf. They surfed for 2 hours with the guidance of 2 instructors and the pictures taken were great.

Used Waves 3 times for private surf lessons for my 10 year old. Eddie was her surf instructor the last 2 times he is extraordinary with children. Bruce the photographer was equally excellent.
