I had to re-schedule several times due to unfortunate events, but the Matt was more than understanding and let me reschedule without hesitation. The instructors were extremely kind, and took time to get to know us each individually. They also provided immediate feedback to help us improve our surfing. This was my first time surfing ever, and I absolutely had an amazing experience. I will do it again. Thank you all so much, and I HIGHLY recommend University of Surfing!!!!!

It was fun, fast-paced and exciting. The instructors were great and helped you catch waves. They were a bit late to the meeting point, though.
