Had a great time learning to surf with my family. Richard had so much knowledge to teach us and explained everything so we understood. Riding the waves was a blast with him and Fransisco helping us the whole time. Safe, knowledgable and so much fun!

I decided at the last minute to try surfing-emailed Pedros-and they worked with me-to make it work. I met Richard early the day of my departure, and he took me out by myself-very patient and knowledgeable, he worked with me way over the allotted time. I will be back again and again to master it.

I had so much fun surfing different waves and trying new boards. During the week, Richard helped me surf on a shorter board and catch more difficult waves. He's a wonderful teacher... More

After visiting a few surf shop, we came across Pedro's surf shop at the end of the main street (in the little hidden corner). As soon as I met Richard I knew he would be an amazing teacher and would make me feel very comfortable as this was my first surfing experience. From his awesome tips and tricks, I got... More

Richard was very helpful with picking out a used board for my son's first board. He picked out a local shaper and worked with us on the price. My son is stoked!!!

My boyfriend and I had a private lesson with Richard and he was so awesome! He's a down to earth guy who gave very detailed lessons and he charges the cheapest price for private lessons in town that we saw. So glad we found his shop!! :)
