I had preciously done a SUP lesson In Australia years ago, and I thought having another in LA on my layover would be fun. I want to buy a SUP and also thought having another lesson would give me an indication on that decision. I'd received a few emails about the weather that morning, due to winds they were unsure to proceed, but the lesson went ahead anyway. I'm so glad it did, because even though I had to fight against the wind, I felt like I still boarded well. Barklie explained the techniques well, he was patient and he answered questions on my thoughts on what type of board to buy back home. Thank you for a great day

Barklie was an amazing instructor. We started on the land and got the fundamentals down, he explained them in an easy to understand way and then demonstrated them. When we hit the water he was patient and gave lots of encouragement. I only fell two times and I knew why as soon as I started to fall. It was a fabulous experience and I would always recommend Barklie and the Poseiden Surf School to anyone who is wanting to learn. I am now hooked and will be out on my own board in the not too distant future.

The experience with PoseidonStandUp was wonderful. Christian gave me a lot of info and got me Brad as instructor. Brad is an exceptional nice person and took me to the perfect spots suitable for my surfing. Gave me the right feedback at the right time. Thank you Poseidon and hope to see you on my next LA visit.

Our instructor was very nice we simply cruised around the marina for the class and there were no high expectations. We were also given a free coffee for the purchase of a lesson which doesn't hurt for an early morning lesson! Would definitely do again! :)

Overall, my experience was good & I'm glad that I did it. Peter was great about being punctual, providing the gear (including rinse water) and getting the parking attendant to allow me to park in the lot even though it was closed for a film shoot. He was also great with helping me get the board & paddle down & up the rocks between the parking lot & the water. His instructions were good and I feel like I have a better idea of what's needed to succeed at SUP surfing. Peter also did a great job informing me how to say safe & out of the way of other people, which helped me to finish the day uninjured. Peter gave me a realistic expectation of how hard SUP surfing can be for beginners and how much work it's going to take to get more comfortable. That being said, I felt like I was on my own a little more than I would've liked. At times, Peter was trying to give me advice, but I was too far to hear him. However, if giving me more attention would have not made a difference, then so be it. I'm not sure if my less than perfect experience was due to anything related to Peter, or just due to the fact that SUP surfing is really hard. I'm still grateful for the lesson & it did make me more motivated to keep trying.
