We had 1 adult and 7 teenagers go out with Richard, Miguel and Oscar in March and we all got the hang of surfing within an hour. They were excellent teachers not only of the athletic part of surfing but the whole sport including understanding wave structure, surfing safety and differences for long and short board surfing. They were not... More

Had a great time learning to surf with my family. Richard had so much knowledge to teach us and explained everything so we understood. Riding the waves was a blast with him and Fransisco helping us the whole time. Safe, knowledgable and so much fun!

I decided at the last minute to try surfing-emailed Pedros-and they worked with me-to make it work. I met Richard early the day of my departure, and he took me out by myself-very patient and knowledgeable, he worked with me way over the allotted time. I will be back again and again to master it.

I came back to Pedro's for a surf camp and couldn't be happier with the week! Pedro's is a fantastic shop, and Richard is a really amazing instructor. I had so much fun surfing different waves and trying new boards. During the week, Richard helped me surf on a shorter board and catch more difficult waves. He's a wonderful teacher... More
