I've been surfing twice with Adventure Out - once back in Sep 2019 and once in Oct 2020 - and I have to say that the Covid surfing experience was every bit as good as the pre-Covid surfing experience. Adventure Out's team has done a phenomenal job of maintaining a truly superb (and safe) experience during a difficult time.

The surf instructors are all fantastic, and the group lessons were a perfect blend of information and experience. I also want to give a special shoutout to James. He was one of my instructors both times I went out on the water with Adventure Out. James truly stood out as an amazing instructor. I was wildly impressed by his ability to explain difficult concepts in simple ways, his friendliness, and his proactive one-on-one coaching. I am fairly certain that he pulled aside every single member of our group for at least ten minutes of private, personalized instruction.

I recently took four days of surf lessons from this group and had an exceptional experience.

Every interaction that I had with AO was top-notch.

As I was researching and comparing different programs, I immediately noticed how well designed the webpage was. The class overviews and scheduling are very easy to understand and use. All of the questions that I submitted were answered very promptly and communication was always clear and detailed.

My classes were primarily with Chase. Chase is a talented instructor in his ability to be both technical and personable. I have taken some surf lessons before and I can say that the instruction provided was so much more than just a "surf lesson". There was good discussion and insight around surfing, reading the waves and water conditions, how the line-up functions, etiquette, safety, etc.

I also had the opportunity to surf with Adam one day and he was a great instructor as well.

My experience with this company was so A+ that I have already signed up for additional surf lessons and wilderness classes.

Huge kudos and thanks to instructor, Jess, for going above and beyond. I booked my nephew (visiting from the UK) on to a beginner surf lesson. On the day, the lesson had to move due to surf, so I got a call that morning from Jess to let me know, but my nephew was a) car-less and b) without a phone... meaning that even if I could contact him (which I couldn't -- i'd put him on the 17 express bus from San Jose early that morning), he wouldn't have been able to get to the new location 20mins south of Santa Cruz. After I explained this to Jess, she immediately offered that she would go to the original meet place, find him and drive him to the new location -- and then back again at the end of the day. Wow. I was sooooo appreciative. She turned, what could have been a disaster, into a huge day for my nephew (coz the lesson was great too!) I can't thank her enough!
