It was our first time for both of us to ride the waves & so we were nervous but excited. James definitely helped us over come that as soon as we geared up. He was very relaxed & chilled. He went through all the safety measures before we got into the water and he made us both feel very comfortable. He was very patient with us as well. Great guy & great lesson. We want to come back & go through him again! 😊 Yay! I can ride waves now!! Go surfing!! 🙃

Wow! Just....wow. What a truly unique experience this was. This one of the last items on my CA trip itinerary and it was definitely the highlight. James was an exceptional instructor and had unbelievable levels of patience and encouragement. I was a complete beginner and didn't think I would be able to get up on the board before the lesson but James made it possible. I would take another lesson again in a heartbeat if I had more time in CA.

I have high expectations and James exceeded them, a very rare feat! He worked hard to give me a great experience! He was even checking the waves and made an adjustment right before hand. Wonderful instructor and human being!
