Matt and Stephanie were great with our teenaged daughters. They had a great time. We have heard horror stories about no shows and Groupon issues. No issues here whatsoever. We received texts confirming location and start time. Highly recommend.

The guys from blue rush were awesome! Had a fantastic time. Super easy going and fun instructors but also took the time to explain everything well. Both my girlfriend and I got up on our boards. Definitely recommend.

Matt was a great teacher! Great for beginners for surfing, he made me feel safe and comfortable in the water. I would definitely do another lesson with him. His little dog Rabbit is very cute too.

Solid basics taught and all about getting up on the big North Shore waves. More of an immediate run than a walk-then-run experience so I would suggest watching surfing tip videos online before heading out if you're new to the sport. Matt is a good...More
