I booked a semi-private lesson for my husband, my daughter, and myself and had Brooks as our instructor. None of us had ever surfed before; in no time, we were all up on our boards surfing! Brooks made the lesson so much fun and was amazing with our 8 year old. We were so impressed, my daughter and I went back later in the week for another semi private lesson with Brooks. He is a super nice guy and a great instructor. I highly recommend this surf school and would definitely use them again. Also, the photographer took excellent photographs. Everyone was very professional.
