The staff were very helpful and professional in teaching our kids how to surf. For both children and adults, this organization was efficient and helpful in getting everyone up and onto the surf board. Tons of fresh fruit was served at the half way point.

Hi Ken, we don't offer fishing. We are a surf school offering surf lessons and retreats. For fishing you may want to check in with Zuma Tours here in Montezuma. Best regards!
