“They were really good at teaching me. I didn’t know anything about surfing before the lesson I had never even been on a surf board and in a one hour lesson I was hitting waves. The second time I went the refined my techniques and I was hitting waves for the back half of the time. I ended up going from nothing to riding a wave all the way to the beach”
