Excellent surf lessons with focus on safety and skills. Skilled and easy-going instructor (Jorge/Flaco) who customized his lessons to our needs. We took the intro and the advanced lessons. Highly recommended!

Hi, I'm very curious as to how much it costs per person, for someone who is about 15-16 years old, and would only be for one day. Also do you accommodate large groups? Thank you for your time.

I've never surfed before. Would it be silly to sign up for a full day of lessons or would I be better off having an hour lesson and then trying it on my own for the day? I'm an excellent swimmer, former competitor in high school so the swimming part is easy and I've boogie boarded and body boarded. Also, it would be my husband, who has never surfed and my 2 kids ages 7 & 9, both fearless swimmers.
