My 7 year old took a private one hour surf lesson with Dan this morning. What a great experience! This was his first time surfing. Dan was patient, encouraging and positive! For my son's first time surfing, Dan had him up on the board quickly!! My son keeps asking when we are going surfing again!! Thank you Pacific Surf School... More

Wow! My son and daughter had a great time at their first surfing lesson. Jovonne was very nervous about her first experience. No worries. Adam made her feel at ease right away with his friendly style. Thanks so much Adam for an awesome experience! They both can't wait to catch more waves tomorrow, keep surfing! PB Surf School rocks!

Adam was so great with our son, Noah. He's 5 years old and Adam was really good with him, making him feel comfortable and got him laughing whenever he had the chance! I think it's the perfect age to start surf lessons. I highly recommend this company, and Adam!

Did this for a bacherlarette party and it was really fun. The instructor (Brandon) was professional, gave each one of us feedback (which was helpful) and entertaining. They paddled us out and kept our group constantly riding into shore so we never had a down second. I would go again and recommend them!

Brandon was a great surf instructor, not only made it look easy, but he made it easy! Very straightforward to understand and a lot of fun. Highly recommend!

This was so much fun for the whole family. I went with my wife (51y) and daughter (17). None of us had done this before. But with Renes help we all had a great start on this adventure. Rene is not "big", but he is a great instructor!! Thanks to his help we are now "addicted" to this lovely sport... More

My sisters booked a lesson last minute & enjoyed every single moment of their time with Adam. Adam was thorough and patient, and explained the surfing process in a way that clicked with both of them. One of my sisters has had a lesson before, and the other never has - but both agreed he was fantastic.

Adam smith was super with our girls! The whole family had a blast. Can't wait to try it again. Wish we would have done two classes today.
