We had a group lesson with Andrew. He is an excellent surfer, but more importantly, he explains how to do things in a fun way.

My daughter's dream was to have surfing lessons. Andrew at Wavecrest didn't disappoint. The staff and owners were friendly, relaxed and good teachers. We only paid at the end. Keep in mind that you will need to pay in cash. Thumbs up.
