We had a fantastic few hours learning to surf. Dave was an excellent instructor. Very friendly and relaxed. Equipment isn't in the best condition but for the price you pay you can't complain! Would highly recommend to those on a budget!

Surf lessons with Terry were super fun. He's the real deal. He had everyone in the class up and riding the waves on day one -- little waves, big boards, but perfect for beginners to learn technique and gain confidence.

Very relaxed atmosphere, awesome experience! We had never surfed before, but due to Terry's hands-on approach and personal help we managed to get up on our boards very quickly. We specifically liked the personal approach and the fact that we were a smaller group (which...More
