Fun (and exhausting) for first-timers
, Jun 2021
Great, very enjoyable lesson for us beginners. Gave us everything we needed to be able to get up on the surfboards and ride waves. Group was small enough that we all got individualized attention. Instructor was fun and took time between waves to get to know us all a little. Photographer did a great job capturing proof of our efforts and achievements. Would definitely recommend. But be aware that you will have to carry your surfboards down to the beach and into the water, and back up again after you've worn yourself out in the ocean.

My instructor was awesome! He was patient, communicated clearly, was encouraging, and an all around nice guy. I loved every minute of my experience!
Sean was an awesome guide

Sean was an awesome guide. He was committed to ensuring we learned to surf. We had a great experience. We would highly recommend this company.
Rough surf, but great experience

We did a 10:00 AM surf lesson and it was on a very windy day. Even with that challenge our guide was extremely helpful in teaching my 10 and 9 year old girls the mechanics of surfing, helping them get up, and helping them control their boards in the high winds. My kids had a blast, even though they tired out after about an hour (and understandably so given how hard it was to swim back out through the waves). Would recommend this and would do again.
You will surf!

Quick and clear instruction for beginners. The instructor was fun and knowledgeable, and helped everyone get up several times. Awesome time!
It works

Hooked on surfing

Our instructor Mike was amazing with the kids. They all came out of the water and wanted to go back in and surf again. This is very well run operation and the staff is wonderful. Thank you!

This was a bucket-list kind of day for me and my kids and I can tell you that the Surf Shack did not disappoint! It's not the fanciest joint, but if you want a genuine surf experience with the nicest guys in town- this is it. Our instructor, Kai, was wonderful. He was invested in making sure we all had a great experience and we were all able to get up at least once. He was kind, fun, and made us feel like family. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a true surf experience from a place that is invested in offering that and more!
