We had a semi-private lesson with Josh for our 8 (first time) and 12 (second time) year old. He is really patient, great at teaching, and made it fun. Definitely one of the highlights of the week for our kids!

Kevin was patient and thorough; he got all of us up on some good waves...the spot they use doesn’t have any “territorial” locals...would definitely book again.

We had a great group lesson, our instructor was great and was fun to hang with in the water. We both caught multiple waves and left wanting to come back again!

My partner and I did an afternoon lesson with instructor Kevin and really enjoyed ourselves! He was very encouraging and we both got up on our own multiple times and had some good rides! They also got great photos of us! I would highly recommend!
