Krystal was awesome! So upbeat, helpful and patient. She made private lessons accessible and affordable for us, and we're so thankful for this experience. We're already dreaming up where we want to go surfing again. One morning with Krystal and you'll catch the surfing bug, too!

Krystal and her surfing lessons are excellent! She’s a positive and encouraging instructor but also an attentive teacher, making sure you’re learning at the same time. The location she chose was perfect too, not too crowded, with great waves for us beginners to learn at a good pace but some bigger ones to try too. Definitely recommend!

Krystal brings such positivity and fun to her lessons. My partner and I had a great time catching the white water and just getting in a lot of good reps!! She was a queen at reading waves that were good for us. Would recommend!

If you’re here, that means you’re thinking about booking this. Just do it!! You’ll make a memory you’ll cherish forever. I was pretty nervous, Krystal helped me with every step, pushing me in a gentle way but in a way that I could just get into it! My friend and I still talk about this and hope to come back and surf with Krystal again. Oh, and she brings her phone so you can get photos and video! We loved it!

Krystal was patient, positive and an absolute pleasure to surf with in San Diego. Despite swampy conditions, she and I had a great time in the waves. She really pushed me to break some bad habits while being incredibly affirming and clear on how to improve. Thank you Krystal!!!
