Dave was an amazing teacher. He made our time on the water informative and fun. I never thought I would get up and actually surf, as it was my first time, but with his help I did! Thank you Dave.

It leaves from the Marina Del Rey canals. You can call them and tell them exactly what you want. They are very easy to work with. Hope you do it, it was by far the best trip we ever did in SoCal
