Had a great time surfing with our AMAZING instructor at the Cox Bay Beach! Took the 8am class and it was amazing- no other surfers at the beach yet and some great waves to catch (for beginners like me)!

Jeffro took our boards to the beach in his van. I'm not sure if he transports passengers as well. He's very helpful though, so i'm sure he can help you figure something out!
