Matt and Stephanie were great with our teenaged daughters. They had a great time. We have heard horror stories about no shows and Groupon issues. No issues here whatsoever. We received texts confirming location and start time. Highly recommend.

Matt was a great teacher! Great for beginners for surfing, he made me feel safe and comfortable in the water. I would definitely do another lesson with him. His little dog Rabbit is very cute too.
