Had the best time and experience with this surf school. Manny was by far an amazing instructor. The photographer was really good at taking clear and up close photos. I definitely recommend the photo package with your lessons. Family friendly Too!

My kids did a group lesson with Anton and they had a blast. They learned so much in just a short amount of time. I would recommend this for beginners and intermediate surfers.
