We came to Destin in late April and set up lessons for our niece and nephew. The instructions were very good and great about setting up our lessons. Ride on provided me a surfboard to use while the kids took their lesson and an umbrella for my husband to hang out under with our new baby.

Fantastic instructors made this 3 days of surf camp memorable for our 10 and 12 year old. They started the camp with some basic instruction and then hit the waves with the instructors. Definitely recommend signing up for multiple days if you have the time - the kids can build on skills and really get the hang of the board... More

I had a great time attending their 3 hour surf camp. I was able to ride some waves for the first time in my life and it was awesome! My family and I came back 2 more times during our vacation and the guys cut us a great deal on surfboard and paddle board rentals. Highly recommended!

I want to share the wonderful experience I have had this week with the chair rental component of this business. Not only are my chairs and umbrella set up by 8:00 and in great condition, as they have seen me coming and going with my bags each day, one of guys immediately runs to me and carries my stuff to...

It was my 8 year old T1D daughter's first time and she loved it!! They had her up surfing in no time and she had a blast this morning! The 3 hours is really just the right amount of time- glad we went with that! She only took one 15 minute break to refuel and was back to it. Great... More

We all loved it and made for some great photos!!! Especially since we were all in matching surf shirts that they... More

My son (7) had been wanting to try surfing for sometime now. We were delighted when we found Ride On Surf School just down the beach from where we were staying. We signed him up for a 4 day lesson (1 hour per day). The guys (Dylan, Scott & Logan) were super. They were so friendly, helpful, and hands-on the... More

He was fun and interesting and invested and both of my kids loved him. He was also very flexible and had great communication with me prior to getting there.... More
