“Fun in the surf”

Ride On Surf School
Reviewed 14 August 2017 via mobile

My wife and I now live in Destin after retiring 1 year ago. We had never surfed before and decided to take a lesson at Ride On Surf School. We can't believe we hadn't tried it before. What great fun! Our instructor Riley was patient, reassuring and got us to get up on the boards quickly. At 66 years of age and my wife being 53, we weren't sure we would take to it so quickly but Riley was a great instructor as was Dylan who joined him to get us going in tandem. We highly recommend trying this at any age. The location is great and the surf was perfect for learning.

My two daughters (age 14 and 16) had a blast with the guys from Ride On! The guys were awesome and the kids wanted more time than we had originally booked and the guys were like let's go! This was the highlight of the trip for our daughters as it was their first time to surf. They had chairs and an umbrella so my wife and I could hangout/ relax and watch the fun. They even took high res photos of the girls and gave us the download on the spot. Great guys and a lot of fun!! Highly recommend!!

The condo unit we stayed in recommended we rent beach chairs and umbrellas from Ride On. They're rates were quit reasonable and they were very hospitable and polite.
BUT, THEY'RE SURF SCHOOL WAS EVEN BETTER!!! Our kids had a blast surfing and after just a short lesson session, they were surfing and having the time of their life!! Great investment in our overall fun vacation! Thanks, guys! Look forward to seeing you again!

This was a great experience. Wife and 14 year old both learned the basics from Dylan and they were catching waves in no time. 40 bucks gets you an hour in the water. The guys stay out the whole time and make every effort to make it a great experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to surf.
