Ossian and Justin were very helpful, and encouraging. We had surfed before but never taken lessons. I highly recommend them. We were only 3 students and had 2 teachers, they teach you how to improve quickly, and make it fun. Really enjoyed our lesson today!!!

These are great surf instructors! My 9-year-old daughter and I went surfing for the first time in this class and had a great time. Location is great, small class size.

As someone who is not a good swimmer and has a general fear of the water, attempting to surf was something I wanted to try, but assumed I would not be good at it. Without Ossian and Casey, there's no way I would have got...More
