We had the best surfing experience ever as a family! As we are from The Netherlands, the youngest kids did not speak a lot of English, but fortunately Tyler has great teaching skills and we all (even mom and dad ;) managed to catch some nice long waves.. (compared to the Dutch riffles) Hope to be back!

Erik was very passionate about teaching me to ride but also how to read the waves so I'd know what to do on my own. Very good kid!

Had my first surfing lesson yesterday. Kevin was amazing - he is such a fun and outgoing person and his explanations made it so easy to catch the waves. I was basically standing on the board right away - truly great experience!

We had our kids 13 and 16 years old attending the surf school with Tyler as the coach. They learned to surf after one class! This was the best experience ever and they are keen to come back and have tyler as their coach. Tip hat!

They set up right in front of blue sea beach hotel where we were staying. You need to book online 24hrs ahead ideally and 9am is a great time. The instructors are great and we are both beginners and Kevin got us both surfing! Hydrate well as it is definitely a great workout. Just book it you won't regret it.

The class meets right on the beach, look for red tent near hotels, restaurants, and stores. Daniel our instructor was very personable, knowledgeable, and very motivated. My daughter (19) and I opted for a group lesson and had two other girls in our class with the one teacher. Being December, we wore wet suits which were provided at no additional... More

I took a solo surf class in November. Erik was my teacher, he spoke French so it was perfect for me. He was really nice and gave me some really good advice. I succeed to take some wave, thanks to him. I had a great time. The photo package wasn't really good unfortunately, but it still nice of those memories.

Had a semi-private lesson for two on Pacific Beach. Our instructor was super patient as we had some pretty rough waves during our lesson. He took us to different parts of the beach to ensure we were able to catch some waves. Awesome service!
