  • I did this with my sisters and we all had such a great time! We had Caleb as our instructor and he was awesome! Very chill & patient with our repeated attempts. He seemed to enjoy being out there a ton and that made it more enjoyable for us. Based on our experiences here we will definitely try surfing again in the future & recommend Caleb & pacific Surf!
