My third trip to Surf Simply was the best so far. Once again, the folks at Surf Simply delivered professional instruction, clean and very comfortable accommodations and food that is on par with any five star restaurant. Dennis and Eduardo set the tone with endless food combinations that are healthy and delicious. Jessie, my instructor for the week and the...

I was born with a wanderlust. I crave the journey, and inevitably the destination is the beach. I had body surfed, boogie boarded and even stood on a surfboard a time or two. I just always knew I needed to surf. It's a thirst in my soul that i was never able to quench whether it be due to my...

A friend and I had the wonderful privilege to be students at surf simply for New Year's week. There are so many incredible reviews already posted I'm hard pressed to say it better or more convincingly... and really I don't want to share this place with more people because it's already so hard to get into and I want to...

Having spent my whole life in the ocean (mostly LA and Fire Island beaches), I had long yearned to learn how to surf (but never found the moment). When I recently turned 53, it felt like a 'now or never' juncture and decided to book a week at a surf school. I deeply researched the options in hopes of finding...

If you want to be a better surfer, then Surf Simply is for you, regardless of your skill level. This was my second time at Surf Simply and I'm ready to sign up again. Derek was my coach and he surpassed all my expectations. Turtle rolls through big waves scare me, but Derek was right there with me and I...

The place is amazing. The instructors are all great. Everyone helps you and encourages you, just not your coach. I had Derek for the week and he was just the best. Always positive and whether you realized it or not he was pushing you to do your best. The food by Dennis and Eduardo made Surf Simply the best restaurant...

My first reaction when I found Surf Simply online in early 2016 was that it was too good to be true. The reviews were just too good, but there were so many of them I decided to take a chance and consulted my wife. "Go for it" was essentially her comment. So I did. That was a year ago, attending...

A week at Surf Simply is like being in a choreographed production, except it's all real. I went back over the holidays for the 3rd year in a row, and they've nailed it every time. It's truly personalized surf instruction with a 1:1 or 2:1 student-to-coach ratio that feels like there are 8 sets of watchful eyes ready to offer...
