How to describe it? I’m not sure, and even if I could, I wouldn’t do it justice. When you stand up on your first wave it is the uncontrollable, throw your hands in the air and scream feeling, if only for a few seconds!! Once you can ride a wave, it is the undeniable urge to go back for more, and when you are on the beach and the sun is shining it is enormous fun!! Learn to surf...the only way you can really understand what all the fuss is about is to get some gear and get wet!! That’s where we can help.

Our 2 boys (9 and 11) loved their surf lesson with Surf Steps. The Surf Steps guys were excellent - very high energy and attentive. My husband and I watched from the beach. We would definitely do this again.
