“Jamie and Archie are brilliant instructors, full of passion for surfing with a friendly, welcoming attitude. They got us up on the boards surfing within the first lesson, and tailored the lessons to the different skill levels in our group, teaching tricks and more advanced techniques to the member of our group who had surfed before. This is our second year and we will be back for more!”
