“We booked a group lesson very easily this week online for myself, my sister and my 7 year old daughter with Brad. He met us on time with a smile on his face and ready to teach us his passion! I was nervous upon arrival about my daughter who just recently learned to swim being out there in that big ocean but Brad never once let her out of his sight. He in fact paddled for her most of the time to ensure that she didn’t get too tired while she was out there. We spent a fun filled morning in the water, getting launched into oncoming waves and having a blast but Brad wanted to make sure that my daughter had the greatest experience ever so he ended up having us back out for awhile in the afternoon when the conditions were a little better. Brad truly has a gift and a heart for teaching kids. We’re so excited to come out for our next lesson!” —Soha L.
“We did a group surf lesson (4 of us) two weeks ago. It was a beautiful day and we were worried that there were so many people out there that we might not get to do a lot of surfing, but Austin and the rest of the crew helped us get up on a bunch of waves. I really didn’t expect to do anything that even looked like surfing since it was my first time, but I got up on my first try! Even though it’s only two hours, we were totally worn out by the end of it so that’s really all we could take. The whole team at Surf School Santa Cruz is super friendly and will help you surf even if you have no idea what you’re doing.” —Nina C.
