My husband and I did an outrigger canoe trip with Lance and Noah and it was awesome - would definitely recommend it! We got a great view of some turtles and they added some fun by riding a wave towards the shore. Great experience!

Semi private lesson booked for teens with surfing experience. Discussed on booking, yet lesson was formulaic and aimed at beginners. Minimal teaching, even though 1:2, but I’m sure would be ok if you’ve never surfed before and success is standing up on the board. Independent...More
