I had a great time. Hakan is very knowledgeable and also very patient. I felt safe the entire time. He also does this super cool head stand while surfing. Ha! If you’re ever in town and you’re down for the surfing experience, definitely check him out! Until next time. :)

It was a great experience. Even though we didn't surf before, Hakan made it very easy to learn. If you want to learn the tips & tricks of surfing while enjoying the great waves of the Venice Beach, this is a perfect experience.

It was our first time surfing and Hakan made us feel super comfortable, even though one of us didn't really know how to swim. The experience was so much fun and I would definitely recommend it.

The surfing lesson was a lot of fun, and Hakan was really helpful directing me in the water. He is a super chill and fun guy to hang out with. Definitely go for a lesson even during the colder months - you might just get a one on one lesson!
