Chose Del Soul Surf School for the great reviews and they did not disappoint! Firstly Amite is an amazing teacher and my 3 kids (ages 15,10,8) all got up on the board and surfed their first day. They were a little anxious about it and Amite and his crew made them feel safe and confident! We took classes with them... More

If want to learn to surf in Santa Teresa, this is where you should start. Amit and his team are very professional, and will guide you from the basics to that moment when you stand up on your board and feel that you can surf. I recommend Del Soul to anyone who want to learn the sport.

Del Soul Surf was the absolute best!!! Amit and his wife are so warm and lovely and immediately make you feel at home in Santa Teressa. Del Soul Surf scouts the best beach with the best daily conditions for surfing. Amit was everything I could have hoped in an instructor. He breaks surfing down to a science. His direction and...

Santa Teresa is a wonderful destination itself but Del Soul is an absolute gem of a resource for rentals, area advice and surf lessons. My family has surfed and had lessons previous times in Hawaii but Amit and his team at Del Soul put all of those experiences to shame. Absolutely the best, I cannot recommend them high enough!

I've never surfed before, and was really nervous to try it out. But Amit was an incredible teacher and made us so comfortable. We were up riding the waves in no time. Highly, highly recommend. We'll be back. Thanks, Amit and team!

Amit and his team are great. I can't imagine anyone could have more energy, more enthusiasm and more fun teaching surfing. In two days our family learned the ropes and had a great time with this crew. I'm sure there are other good schools along the road but for us Del Soul was perfect whether in the water or at... More
