Group Surf Lesson
My kids and I all took lessons together and had a fantastic time. The following day, I booked my boys in an additional lesson, and they were learning even more turns and maneuvers. I couldn't believe how quickly the kids progressed with Tidal Wave instruction. I highly recommend Tidal Wave for personalized lessons
Family of 5, including a 5 year old, all of us took a lesson with Alvaro and another instructor. They were great, the equipment was great, the photos that they sent us of us surfing were professional and they even provided a fruit cup for each participant ! Highly recommended!!!
Alvaro is the best surf instructor I have ever had
He is professional and patient, and it is clear that he has a lot of experience and knowledge in the field
Thanks to him, I really enjoyed surfing lessons and also improved my surfing abilities significantly
