It was a wonderful family and friends activity for beginners. Staff was friendly and helpful.Our instructor Jack was well knowledgeable and experienced in surfing and taught us the basics. Jack was the best. He coached us to get perfectly on the board and I caught the first wave. Definitely a memory that will be cherished for a long time. I’m definitely going back again 100%.

The staff was super friendly and our instructor, Sydney, was truly the best. Very encouraging and fun to learn how to surf with. Highly recommend this experience!

It was the best experience I’ve ever had. I had a great instructor that new what he was doing & gave me the one on on time I needed. It was unforgettable.
