I had taken an lesson previously and not even gotten up on the board. This time, I was up by the third wave. The instructors were great and everyone in our group had a fantastic time.

My 8 yr old boys, 11 year old daughter and I had a great surf lesson from Cliff. Really appreciated how he covered safety before the actual surf lesson. We had a great time - would definitely recommend.

I believe the lesson was around $50 and we tipped them a little extra for letting my husband hop on a board for a bit. I don't think they have a website. You just call and leave him a message and he'll either call you back... More
