“Great people-very professional!”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

My husband really wanted to try surfing so we took the Coaster train from San Diego(very easy, inexpensive too ) and asked a local surf shop who they would recommend. The gentleman didn't even have to think about it-he told us SoCal was by far the most professional and courteous.

Kyle, the instructor was great! After a brief orientation on shore they headed into the ocean. With Kyle's help and instruction my hubby was able to get up on his first wave. Each time Kyle would provide feedback and help him set up for the wave. He was a very knowledgable and respectful young man.

They also run a surf camp and the kids seemed to be having a blast. They were well supervised and safety was carefully maintained.

This is a year round business so you can learn to surf anytime. All equipment was provided.

“Best surf lessons ever”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

I have taken surf lessons before, none like this. They actually taught me to surf. I paddled into my own waves and rode down the face. These guys have been in business for 17 years and it shows, all of their google and yelp reviews are spot on. My kids will be back for your summer surf camps in July, they cant wait to get their goodie bags and t shirts. Thank you guys for the highlight of our vacation.
