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!

The surf camp offered by the camp is excellent. You can bring your own board or a board will be provided. It is a short walk from the Pit, where the students meet, to the beach. The staff are all experienced surfers and do a great job with the kids. I knew my 12 year old daughter was safe and learning, and I was able to watch the class from the beach if I wished. Also, the staff makes sure the students have water and avoid excessive sun exposure. The staff is very conscientious and patient.
