Highly recommend this for kids. Each child had a dedicated teacher and were up on the boards like pros in no time. The owner was in the water taking amazing pictures which were super reasonably priced for purchase after the lesson. This exceeded our expectations by far and was one of the highlights of our trip.

My girls (6 and almost 9) just finished their lessons and had the absolute best time. The instructors took such good care of them and were so patient and kind. Before the kids even came out of the water they were asking to come back again tomorrow. My 6 year old was nervous and they did a great job making sure she felt safe. We absolutely recommend Surfer Girl Academy!

My son (6yrs old) had the time of his life. His nerves were put to rest once the instructor started. His lesson flew by and immediately wanted to schedule another the following day. He was able to ride a few waves shortly into the lesson( with the instructor). The pictures and video are priceless. Great staff. Patient with kids. My son gave his instructor a huge hug. And now has a new favorite hobby!!
