I had never surfed before. Mike made the experience easy and fun, and I definitely want to continue surfing now that I've tried and enjoyed it.

We were vacationing for our honeymoon and took a semi-private lesson with Jared. My husband and I were both nervous but he made us feel like naturals. It was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! Would definitely recommend!
