Cody, Blake, Noah, Chase, Brycen and the guys were amazing! If there was a rating higher than "excellent" they would have earned it. Everyone rode in some waves and had the best time. We are all still talking about it.....highly recommend!

Awesome to hear you had an enjoyable experience. We LOVE surfing and love sharing it with others. Thank you for taking the time to share with us! Cheers!

Because we were only 2 for the lesson, we had an instructor each which was nice. Other than that, the guys were good at explaining and very friendly and easy going. I would very much recommend this place.
