My teenagers are now hooked on surfing. It was the first time for all of us and our instructor, Jack, was fantastic! He broke down the skills, we practiced the skills on the beach, and then hit the waves! We had so much fun that we went back to rent equipment for the rest of the day and the next day. Great service, friendly staff, and they helped made it a memorable vacation for all of us! ~ Visited August 2016

Had Gavin and Adam as our excellent and positive instructors for a group of 9 first timers. They went over safety concerns, surfer etiquette, emergency procedures, as well as surfing steps and instructions and lots of energy. Would come back for these guys next time!!! ~ Surfed November 2016

It was my first time surfing and I am so lucky to have Allan from Pacific Surf School as my teacher! It's not easy falling again and again, but his enthusiasm and support helped my to surf my first wave quickly! I also really appreciated learning the fundamentals of the type of waves we would surf and setting of the water/shore line to keep us safe. It was an all around positive learning environment and fun fun fun! Will be going again next year! ~ Surfed September 2016

My wife and I took out first surf lesson ever yesterday and had a blast! Or instructor was Jill and she was amazing! The instruction was thorough, and informative. Safety was explained to a point where we would feel comfortable going alone next time. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to surf. Visited October 2016 ~ Surfed October 2016

My Daughter and I tried cold water surfing (-2 degrees)! I was petrified of freezing - turn out it was a great workout and a ton of fun! Our Instructor Adam was fantastic - so patient and encouraging and his love of the sport and people really made him a pleasure to learn from. This company was very accommodating to our time-frame and we felt we got lots of individualised instruction! ~ Surfed January 2017
