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.
