We put our 12yo granddaughter and 9yo grandson in the morning surf camp for a week. Staff were very patient and supportive. Neither had surfed before, and both were surfing the first day. They had an experience they'll never forget. They loved it.

I had a 60 minute lesson with Conner off Dutton Island. He is a great instructor. I highly recommend this experience. Next step a lesson in the ocean.

We went out today with Connor and my entire family to give SUP at try before going on vacation. The kids had an awesome time and Connor was great with them. This is my second outing with Jax Surf and Connor. The entire team delivers great service and a comfortable, fun time. My kids have also been in their surf camp 3 times and ask to go back every summer.

After reading several great reviews of Jax Surf & Paddle Camp, I put my two boys in their one-week morning session. The boys loved it - and were (happily) exhausted at the end of every day. I ended up registering them for a second week, and I'm so glad I did. The boys definitely got more comfortable on their surfboards and in the water, and with the terrific group of instructors who supervised them each day. We liked everything about camp - especially the staff, and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering it for their child. My kids absolutely loved it.

Meanwhile, I spent my afternoons on the beach wishing I could join them! So, I did.

I took a private lesson on the last day with Connor & it was such a positive, fun experience, I hope to repeat it again soon - with my husband. Connor thoroughly explained and demonstrated exactly what I needed to do to successfully "surf" a wave, patiently answered all my questions, critiqued my dry land technique & capably deflected all my self-criticisms - all before we got out on the water. I felt well prepared for our session & comfortable with him from start to finish.

I won't lie, it was tough going once we hit the waves - lots of wind and rough conditions - but he was calm, cool and collected and he kept me that way too! Connor was lovely to talk to, provided positive and specific feedback after each and every one of my flailing attempts to stand up, and my biggest cheerleader when I finally put it all together and 'surfed' a wave. I was awkward and probably terrible, but you would never know it from his reaction.

Everything about our Jax Surf and Paddle experience was top notch & I'd recommend them to anyone looking for lessons in the Jacksonville area.

P.S. if anyone at JS&P is reading this: I *think* photo evidence of my afternoon exists & if so, I hope you forward it to me!
