My brother and I (both over 50) took a surfing lesson with Aarin @ SPI over the MLK weekend. We highly recommend - her vast and diverse knowledge, patience, and encouraging personality made for a rewarding experience along with very reasonable rates and probably over-generous with her time for which we were very grateful.B Taylor
Excellent location to host surfing sessions for all ages. Warm waters, extremely safe beach surfing conditions (no rocks, no reefs, just sandy bottom and user friendly waves).Tommy Saenz
