Had a great time in a private lesson - 4 of us paired up with an instructor per person. They made sure we actually learned the basics of surfing while we were having fun. Will definitely be back.

Good surfing lesson, though less than 2 hours for some reason

Overall, we had a lot of fun with our surfing lesson. The booking receipt did not provide any information as to where we needed to go, so I had to scramble the night before to figure that out. However, the surf shop was quick to respond to my messages, even late at night. The less was supposed to be 2 hours, but was ended about 30 minutes earlier for some reason. No explanation was provided for that. However, we were tired and ready to be done anyway, so did not argue.
