Two of us did a 2 hour surf lesson. For one it was their first lesson, the other had tried a few times previously. We both managed to stand up, and had a great time. Credit to Jay our instructor. We'll be back.

I purchased a private lesson for my son and husband. The instructor was very friendly and who tailored his instructions to our 7 year old and 40 year old! Both boys were up on their first waves and had a great time.
