This place is stupid. Beware if you buy a groupon as they had zero openings during normal hours. I am sorry but I dont have time to go surfing Tuesday at noon. I have to work and they were not offering any time over the weekends so I finally just gave up. I never actually was able to redeem my coupon and I am out 150 bucks. So pathetic on their part. This is the first negative groupon experience I have ever had. Shame on this surf school.

The instructor never showed up!! I dragged my 2 kids to the meeting point twice - and he bailed out on both occations! My kids were extremerly disappointed, and so was I. Would definately not recommend for anybody!!!

The lesson was fine, but I would never recommend this company because their communication was terrible. They didn't return phone calls or emails for weeks, offered me a spot in a lesson then told me it was full when I confirmed, cancelled a lesson the night before due to an event they could have predicted would affect the lesson, and didn't confirm the lesson we finally did attend, so we showed up doubting they'd even be there after all the trouble to get a lesson scheduled. I bought the Groupon in September, planning on using it immediately, but was not able to redeem it until the end of November because of lack of response to my calls and emails and cancellations. When we did finally get a lesson scheduled, my board's leash didn't have velcro on it, so we had to tie it to my ankle. I'm guessing this was not ideal, safety-wise. Our instructor, Shaun, was very nice and made the best of a bad situation with a few other equipment issues as well.
