The instructor was very...
Heather_O, Sep 2022
The instructor was very sweet and helped my kids with the basics and made them feel very comfortable for their first time ever surfing
Kids surfing

Kids had a great time. The third time they have surfed and the first in California. Nate was a great with the group of 5 participants. The walk to the beach was quite a distance from the check in spot so plan for that or driving down if you need to. Parking is challenging in the area so plan plenty of time.
Five stars and beyond

The customer service for the entire day. I inadvertently scheduled the wrong day and they corrected my mistake with the most professionalism. The surf instructor was top notch and the small group made the experience even better.
Great experience

Great experience! Wonderful instructors! All 3 kids were able to successful stand up on their surf boards!
Sloppy teaching, disappointed
Elijah_P, Aug 2021
Our couch, Very slow, took us almost 25 minutes of lesson time just walking to the surfing location. The lesson time did not match the length that website described. Not professional at all!! Did not learn too many things at all. For the price we paid, not worthy at all. Terrible experience, pricy charge, sloppy teaching, disappointing 😣
So so happy we went

With Covid lessons where out off a year so when we finally had an opportunity we took advantage of it. My 15 yr old son took a group lesson with Riley and it was perfect. Riley had a group of four and showed patience, knowledge and strong experience and gave everyone his time and attention. We enjoyed it so much we are scheduling another visit. Everyone there at the center is sweet, professional. There are lockers to store things and a place to change. Go you won’t be disappointed.
