I'm not sure what happened for the other two families reviewing this surf school, but their experience doesn't sound anything like the experience my family had. I'm a mom, a teacher and an old camp director. I've taught a lot of things to a lot of kids for a lot of years. All I can say is that the guys from the Margo Oberg Surf School were awesome. They showed up on time, were fully equipped, discussed some safety and etiquette basics, and did a little dryland practice session before hitting the waves. Then, they had both of my kids up and surfing in about 5-10 minutes of being on the water. They are 9 and 11. The other people in our group were also up and surfing almost right away. I'd give them two thumbs up in every area from punctuality and safety, to teaching ability, humor and general encouragement. Maybe they had a flakey teacher working for them for a while? Don't know, but we had an excellent experience.
