      Chance was great super patient and gave awesome tips! The beach he chose was great for beginners and wasn’t very crowded at all. I would recommend scheduling an earlier time in the day though and blocking out your whole day for it because it was a ton of fun!
      Wonderful experience that makes us wish we'd done it sooner!

      Chance and Caleb were so helpful and quick to get us in the water. They made sure we were safe the whole time but weren't afraid to give us some good waves good waves after getting the hang of it. With 4 people, we were able to squeeze 4 or 5 surfs per person which was the perfect amount of rest for us in between!
      One on one means more rides🤙🏻

      Day was awesome! Instructor took me to a great brake with a nice vibe. Other instructors had students out there and everyone just meshed together. Caleb was super chill and gave pointed advice. I noticed one on one meant more waves compared to students out there in small groups but there were no large massive groups either.
      10/10 would recommend!

      I had so much fun!! I never surfed before; apparently, I am an overachiever as I rode the wave all the way in. I could not have done that if it was not for the great education and instructions on how to surf! I had a lot of fun and would definitely do it again. FYI, Wear one piece and something covering your thighs for board burn.
      Loved it!

      Chance and Charolette were fantastic. This was our daughters (15,13,8) 1st surf lesson so they were a bit nervous ( so were we). Chance stayed with our 8 yr old when it was her turn so she wasn’t scared and she actually did the best out of the 3 of them!!! Each of the girls got ‘wave time’ and the 8 yr old actually stood up a few times. One of the girls got sea sick, Charlotte brought her back to shore and made sure she was ok. Each of the girls swim and understand the beach but even if they didn’t - I would have felt very comfortable having them take these lessons. Don’t hesitate to book them.. they are super chill, super friendly and very knowledgeable.
