I have taken a couple of surf lessons before, but I think this one has been the best. Bernie is an awesome instructor, and he's really supportive and talks you up to be confident and believe in your abilities, which is super important when you're learning something new. He has a great way of explaining things and making sure you... More

LJ made it easy to learn. He gave a history and wildlife lesson while teaching us how to paddle board. It was 2 of us for an hour and it was very nice. Highly recommend!

LJ and his team were fabulous and very accommodating to all of our students! He hosts a surf day for about 100-150 students and every single one of them come out of the surf with big smiles and talk about what a great time they had. They do individual lessons too and many of our students will contact him after... More

My 16 year old daughter and her friend wanted to try surfing while vacationing in Daytona. They were so excited about their experience with "Cougar" their instructor. He was patient and informative. They got further than most people do in their lesson he told me. The girls left feeling confident that they could surf and have fun with it.

I had never surfed before and this experience was very cool because not only were the instructors nice I had a lot of fun learning how to surf as well. I look forward to joining the school again next summer.

This is the third time in five years I have use Pure Life for surf lessons for my visiting teenagers, although neither were teens when they did it the first time. Every year we go I am impressed with the teachers. They are patient and give good instruction, they are watchful of the students and make sure the lesson is... More

This is the second year we have traveled from Texas to Daytona Beach Shores so that my granddaughter can attend this surf school. L.J. and his instructors were great. My only concern this year was the number of students in her group. The first two days were great with 4 students. Her instructor then allowed other girls to join the... More
