The instructor was great with the kids. They all got up on their surf boards!
This was an excellent excursion all the way around! The instructor, Kevin, was very friendly, experienced, encouraging, and effective. Surfing has been “bucket list“ for me for a lifetime and this was a fabulous opportunity! Best of all? I learned to surf!!
