My three kids 12, 14 and 17 all had a great time. Surf conditions were not ideal but the instructors did a great job of making the most of it. First time surfing and all three stood up thanks to excellent, enthusiastic guidance.

Good lesson and professional teachers

Was very professional and they helped each participant to learn and apply the new skills we were taught. I finished the last 20 minutes catching my own waves and standing up! A success.
