My group (4 people) had a great instructor who somehow managed to get 4 novices to get up on the boards and ride a few waves! 1.5 hours os solid instruction, worth every penny. And so fun!

I had the absolute best time with my instructor, Davo! He was so gentle and such a great teacher, any nervousness instantly died down when he helped out. The staff at the shop was also super sweet and helpful. Great experience!
