My brother and I had a lesson with Erik. We had a lot of fun and he was extremely helpful in giving us the best advice and teaching us how to succeed. He really knew what he was talking about and was able to bestow that upon us as well. We did the 90 minute lesson and it was plenty... More

Had a lesson with Bill the other day. It was an awesome experience. We had a little mishap with a rip current. Bill was calm and felt safe the entire time. After a quick break we moved a little ways down the beach and everything went smooth. Made me want to go right back and try again the next day.

It was a great experience. Our instructor, Adam Smith, was very homie and very helpful. If you are shy or stressed, he makes you comfortable in a minute! I wish it would have lasted longer cause it was so much fun!

My 16 year-old daughter had an awesome time with Kevin L. It was exhausting but she can't stop talking about it. Highly recommend for anyone who really wants to experience San Diego.

We had the best surfing experience ever as a family! As we are from The Netherlands, the youngest kids did not speak a lot of English, but fortunately Tyler has great teaching skills and we all (even mom and dad ;) managed to catch some nice long waves.. (compared to the Dutch riffles) Hope to be back!

Erik was very passionate about teaching me to ride but also how to read the waves so I'd know what to do on my own. Very good kid!

Had my first surfing lesson yesterday. Kevin was amazing - he is such a fun and outgoing person and his explanations made it so easy to catch the waves. I was basically standing on the board right away - truly great experience!

We had our kids 13 and 16 years old attending the surf school with Tyler as the coach. They learned to surf after one class! This was the best experience ever and they are keen to come back and have tyler as their coach. Tip hat!
