“Highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

We took our 2 sons aged 13 and 14 to Ron Jon's on the recommendation of friends who had been there and were not disappointed! The instructor Larry was great with the kids; high energy, great teaching and lots of patience. The boys loved the experience! I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

“There ius no way you dont know about this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Ron Jon is the Surf Fashion Mecca of the world.
First, there are a crazy amount of billboards along the highways pointing you there, finally the place is huge, 2 stoys of bikinis, board shorts, high end beach and surf attire, and dirt cheap t shirt bargains. yo need to go at least one time to see this place. it is directly on Coco Beach.

“A Great Confidence Booster!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Five years ago, I signed up for surf lessons with my 8 year old daughter. Our instructor was an enthusiastic young man who had us standing on the boards and cruising to shore within an hour. Of course, my daughter learned faster--kids usually do--but I got the hang of it! When our hour was over, we opted to keep going. We spent two hours trudging/swimming to where the waves were forming, hanging out waiting for a great wave, madly paddling to get momentum, then get 'popping up' as we caught it, and either riding to shore--or falling off! We were hooked! Two hours might be a bit much for beginners, but it's such a cool thing to do, we didn't want to quit. I have to admit, after two hours we were exhausted--but happy. Surfing isn't a skill everyone can master, but everyone can enjoy. You should be comfortable in the water, be a fairly strong swimmer, and be in reasonably good shape. The most physically demanding part of surfing was the 'popping up' move. Once you learn it, it's effective to practice it at home before going surfing subsequent times. Getting that move to be fluid will really help your surfing ability. We had such a good time, we've returned every year since for more lessons. Last year, my daughter (who is now 13) attended a summer day camp at Ron Jon's. By the end of the week, every kid in that class could really surf! She wants to go to surf camp again. It's a skill that you feel very proud of accomplishing. Have you ever heard of a surfer who WASN'T cool?!??!

Great shop for all your beach needs, and the prices match the cheap beach shops, but better quality.
