Mack communicated w/ me the night before and the morning of the lesson. He was a great communicator and had wonderful costumer service. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting a lesson. Guardrails was a great spot to surf.

Very friendly and helpful. Everyone had fun. There were four coaches, one for each of us. They invited a photographer to snap photos as well, and she took photos throughout the lesson.

I loved this experience! It was my first time surfing ever and I couldn’t have asked for better people to teach me!! My instructor was Matias and he was super encouraging! He had amazing tips and got me up on the board. The other instructors Pierce and Mario were also super supportive when I caught a wave. I loved how comfortable it was with everyone. I highly highly recommend! Even if you don’t know how to swim or swim well they got your back.

What an awesome experience! A private lesson is the way to go.

As an older lady, I’m not able to go as fast nor do as much as most kids. But my instructor at “Keep it Simple” was so patient with me. He let me set the pace of how I needed to go. And he encouraged me all the way. They picked the best spot with gentle waves for beginners.I would do this again!

Mario was a fantastic surfing instructor for both myself and my wife - neither of us had ever surfed before and we was fun, effective, and created a great experience.

Gio was an awesome instructor! My BF and I both got up and caught a wave on the first try! We had a lot of fun. For me, it was my favorite part of my vacation! Highly recommend this as a place to learn how to surf. They even cut up fresh coconut for everyone afterwards!
