I am looking for a place to get a couple beginner surf lessons for my 16 yr old son in late June. We will be driving down from SF. I see ads, but can't tell who is legit... any suggestions? I was first thinking of just trying to get the lessons in Half Moon Bay, I am open to either place (have been to SC before, but not HMB).
Also if there are any suggestions on hidden gems/where to stay between HMB and Santa Cruz (looking for near ocean for around $200/nt-- that would be appreciated as well. Will be driving to SFO from wherever we stay. Thanks
