Really awesome introduction to surfing! The lesson and whole experience felt authentic and cool, not some touristy thing. Great primer instruction starting out, and there is a perfect bay with consistent 2-4 foot waves to give it a go. Instructors are right there to give you pointers and help you get enough speed to catch the first couple waves. We loved it, a highlight of our trip-so many smiles!

We had an amazing experience. So much fun!!! Perfect place and friendly people. Cole was awesome. Highly, highly recommend this place.
