I would highly recommend booking surf lessons with Patrick. I selected his services from numerous online applicants. He seemed the most down to earth and personable and that is exactly what we got! My daughter is 18 and my son is 16. We had a private lesson with him and it was amazing! Patrick was able to give them his undivided attention unlike other classes we watched on the beach. Both children enjoyed success. Not only did he teach them to surf but he taught them about ocean safety like how to identify a rip tide and to avoid stingrays.

I had the best experience learning how to surf with Torrey from Chix on Stix. I was a little nervous before my lesson given that I've never surfed before. After meeting Torrey and practicing pop ups I was excited to get into the water. She was super patient and a great instructor. After a few failed attempts I was able to stand up and ride some waves. It was a great experience and a phenomenal workout. I workout pretty regularly and I have to say it was best workout I've ever had. My favorite thing is that I not only have proof that I surfed but have great shots of such a memorable experience. Torrey is a not only a fantastic instructor but a phenomenon photographer!

After sessions with other instructors, Stephen got me up on my first wave. In every session with him I progress more. He's taught me how to read the waves and feel safe surfing on my own. I travel far to surf with Stephen. He is worth the time and money because he is the best at what he does. I highly recommend him!!

Doug did an amazing job teaching a group of teenage girls how to surf. If you know teenage girls then you know it's not easy to get them to focus especially when they are in a group. But he did!

Grant was an excellent instructor for my 11 year old son and husband. He was patient and took them step by step how to surf. My son had never surfed before, but with Grant's instruction he got up first try! They had a blast!

Glen is a very good instructor. He goes over your fears, I had of stingrays and jelly fish, and tries to mentally prepare you for a wonderful time surfing. He is very patient and takes his time to ensure your safety and a good time. He showed different ways to tackle incoming waves when paddling. I was able to stand up partially a few times and he gave some very good tips. It was a pleasure meeting Glen and learning from him.

About

Take professional surf lessons by a master surf instructor. I am director of instruction with the National Surf School and Instructors Association (NSSIA). I am also a world champion and 12 USA surfing champion. I have successfully instructed thousands of students, teaching both novice and advanced students. 95% or more of my first-time students can paddle out, catch a wave/white water, stand up and ride the wave in control back to the beach, on their own, within 3 hours. Most importantly, they have a greater comprehension of the ocean, their equipment and body positioning and weight adjustments. This enables them to continue learning on their own after the lesson is completed.
