Our instructor had all three of our girls (ages 12-18) up and surfing very quickly. They know what they’re doing. Highly recommend.

Great instructors (had two different instructors over two different days). Both were so enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, and able to work with very different levels of surfers. HIGHLY recommend!!
