Jeffro was very accommodating to our timetable. I was able to get a lot out of his step by step, methodical direction and tips to be able to surf at Chestermans! Equipment/suits were in great condition! Would definitely recommend TSS for successful westcoast surfing!

Jeffro took our boards to the beach in his van. I'm not sure if he transports passengers as well. He's very helpful though, so i'm sure he can help you figure something out!
