I took a few of my friends down to this surf shop and the owner was really helpful in making sure we enjoyed our experience. We hired surfboards and wetsuits and all of the equipment were in great shape! I would highly recommend this as your destination for surfing! Make sure you give the shop a call so the manager there can accommodate you accordingly!

Was fair experience

I have Upgraded to class Pros Friendly teachers Cons Too far No showers The class number was hug and too many kids Kids classes should be separate With big numbers, you get less out of the class Overall was fair experience
