A must for beginner surfers!

After 16 months of not traveling, visiting Santa Cruz and taking a surf lesson was such a treat! The group size was not too big which made it easy to get to know the others and get sufficient attention from the two instructors. The instructors were super friendly and eager to help teach us how to catch waves. Also, the waves were quite calm so this would be good for those that are quite new to surfing and maybe a little hesitant to try.

Instructors were excellent. Very encouraging, supportive and kind. Would definitely recommend. My daughter and friend are 15yo and even though group was shared with adults, instructors spent equal time and provided guidance for everyone.

Perfect site for beginner lesson. Wetsuits kept us plenty warm and our instructor, Chad, was awesome- making sure everyone caught some waves. His assistant, Deanna was super helpful too. I didn’t want to do my first surgery lesson at 61 but my daughter wanted to and I’m so glad I did. Beautiful day in the pacific.
