I can't recommend this place enough, the service was fantastic. We went for spring break and the manager Bodi was able to get us in on short notice for private surfing lessons. He paired us up with Geils, he was great with children. They did not have a rental wetsuit that fit my son so they took on a new one off the shelf! Outstanding people, Ramona is excellent and handling Rental's and will work with you and your schedule. Will was very knowledgeable also. Thanks a lot and we will definitely be back!

Our family took our first surf lesson and had a lots of fun although the ocean was really cold. The group lesson lasted approximately 2 hours and we spent time as a group and individually with our instructor in and out of the water. Giles, our instructor was always in the water whenever anyone in our group was in the water and was very concerned with insuring our safety as well as teaching us to surf. Brody & Will in the shop were great and answered all the questions we had as well as offered suggestions on other things to do in the area. I would definitely recommend The Pit Surf Shop to get out on the water and learn to surf. The only drawback was the air/water was very cold and detracted from the experience. Wetsuit and surfboard is included in the price of the lesson.

TIP: Don't go when the weather/water is cold. Much harder to concentrate and focus on learning.

We had friends from Maine visiting and their son wanted to take a surf lesson. Linus was the instructor and for 2 hours he gave 1 on 1 instructions to an 11 year old. He was patient and knowledgeable. I would use The Pit again.

My son and I went to the Pit Surf Shop to purchase some swim trunks for him. Ramona was a great help to us. Thank you, Ramona! If you're visiting St. Augustine, be sure to go to Pit Surf Shop. And while you're there, be sure to say, "Hi" to Ramona and Will!
