Too Young to Be Surfing Instructors
, Jun 2022
Instructors are very teenager- young. I overheard the other young Instructors betting that I wouldn’t last and they were hoping to end my session early. I would have preferred adult for this session. I asked to take a break and it seems like the young instructor lacked compassion. It kept asking me if I wanted to end my session because I wanted a break., which is not cool. The website said they had professional instructors but all I saw were kids as instructors who lacked professionalism.
What a thrill!

The staff and trainers were friendly and worked with all of us to catch a wave and surf. All 5 of us rookies were able to ride a wave.

Great Morning!

The only reason my review isn’t five stars was because of lack of waves. Other than that, it was five stars! Skyler was super helpful and fun, Hans took excellent care of my daughter, we both enjoyed the morning and appreciated the time we had with our team! Thanks for making the most of a waveless morning!
Great experience

Professional and cordial. They called me the day before appt because the wave condition was expected to be too calm. I changed the date. Then I was still given the option of canceling on the spot with full refund. I went ahead and lesson was still great for the first half. Wave died down later but I was very satisfied. Highly recommended!
