Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great introduction to surfing! My 22 year old son has dreamed about surfing since he was 5. So, when we signed him up on a whim for a 2-hour lesson during our family trip to California, we thought he'd have fun, but I think Nicki and the wonderful crew at Marin Outdoor may have gotten him hooked for life! The instruction provided got him up and on the board in no time. The water was really cold, but the wetsuit made it bearable, and with the lesson scheduled in the morning the equipment was his for the rest of the day.

What a blast! Be prepared to get hooked. We took a beginner lesson, and my 10 year old got up on her board effortlessly on her first attempt! Nicki and her team, have a passion for connecting people to each other- and to nature- through sports. What an awesome way to do something fun and healthy for ourselves while also deepening our relationships and experiencing our abundant open spaces. I also LOVE the fact that this is WOMAN-OWNED and operated local business. This is a refreshing change in an industry that has been mostly male. Thank you MOA for your inspiration on so many levels!! We'll be back!

My 10 year old son and I did our first surf lesson with Nicki and we had such a positive experience, we may be surfers for life. Nicki's approach to teaching how to surf focuses more on doing it well and have fun while doing it than being perfect the first time. My son and I were able to get up a few times but still had a great time in the water when we didn't. We'll back at the beach on boards very soon.

My partner and I needed to experience solid surf lessons because we had a rotten one a year ago. Our lesson with Thane blew us out of the water, only metaphorically. We learned the fundamentals and everyone in our lesson at one point or another were up on their feet in the water. We will definitely take the follow-up lesson! First we have to get fit enough to handle all of the paddling.

As the instructions say, arrive early to park at the North Beach. I recommend the earlier lesson because the beach is less crowded and parking is easier to find.

My husband and I took beginner lessons from Thane and had a blast! His techniques are very helpful and he made sure we got the most out of our lesson. He's patient and friendly and enjoyable to be around. We will be recommending him to everyone!
