Sam is an amazing instructor. He's so positive, energetic and pro-active. He really helped out my oldest son- more than he knows. A very positive experience overall.

Kids had a great time. Picked up lots of tips from instructors, who were great with them. Having the three lessons was really good. The kids come home with so much more confidence with their surfing.

This is the second time I have brought grandchildren for a 3 day program. Again instructors varied but were uniformly highly competent and helpful. I would happily recommend the program to others.
