  • “We’re a couple of mid-westerner’s that came down over the Christmas holiday and wanted to surf. The conditions weren’t ideal, but Evan patiently and thoughtfully instructed us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and would recommend these guys to anybody that wants to give it a try. It was our second time using them and will certainly be doing it again! Thanks!”
