Met the owner, unfortunately. Completely uninformed and combative. We were hoping to enjoy this place. After meeting the owner, however, I would avoid the place on principles. Combative and aggressive and completely off side. Do NOT support.

Lucas and Jessie are great instructors. Everyone in the group was able to get up and surf. Just enough beach instruction to know what to do, and then out on the water to start surfing!

If you want just the 4 of you, no other students, call in advance. But I'm sorry I don't know private lesson prices.
