The sunsets from the front lawn are unbelievable! I can't say enough good things about the staff! Jonathan...

Our stay at Thunderbomb was amazing. The food and house was excellent, and the waves and surf instructors just made it an easy 10/10. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and the whole place had an authentic feeling. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa man!
