This was my first solo trip, and I was a little unsure of myself. However, the experience at Witch's Rock was amazing. My pickup from the airport was seamless, everything was ready and scheduled for me once I arrived. I was in the shared room, which was spacious and clean. I started meeting lovely people immediately, and made great friends---lots...

This was my second trip to this Surf Camp and my expectations are always met. The staff is super friendly and everyone just wants to go and surf! This is my kind of location.

Witch's Rock has the best spot on the beach. There's hardly ever a bad time to go out in the water. We didn't stay at their hotel, but took lessons and frequented the bar and restaurant. My husband and I each had 6 or 7 lessons and they were very accommodating when we requested a day off or more lessons....

It's hard to put into words, the experience was beyond any of our expectations from the moment we arrived! It was our sons 18th birthday and everyone went above and beyond to make it very special! We are already planning a return visit! We came home better surfers for sure but the surprise was that we left there better people...

I've wanted to learn to surf for over 40 years and chose WRSC as the place to learn. Although I had some trepidation about the trip and the learning, the WRSC staff was extremely patient with me as I "kicked the tires" via a lot of back and forth emails. They were very flexible as we worked out a package...

Very nice staff. Very helpful all the way around! Great experience overall! We are not surfers at all... We went there with a group. The instructors were very nice and patient with us. There are many other things to do there if you decide surfing is not your thing! Beaches are beautiful! The subsets were spectacular!
