They were super friendly and helped us surf so flawlessly even though it was our first time! We caught a lot more waves than we thought and had many chances to learn!

Instructors were amazing! I’m 46, and I took kids 14, 15 & 16 years old, we all were able to get up. Other kids were there that were 5 & 6 and were able to learn with instructors on the board with them. I’m ready to catch some bigger waves now!
