Great lesson! Peter and Jake were amazing!
Excellent instructor, quality boards
My instructor was great and I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson and the experience! Would definitely taking another lesson and recommend to anyone looking for a surf lesson in RI!
My daughter (age 10) absolutely loved her surfing lesson! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend taking lessons with them!
Peter was very patient in spite of the poor, choppy surfing conditions. Our grandchildren chose to try it again a second day and absolutely loved it. The two instructors were very hands-on and encouraging. The kids actually stayed on the surf boards and felt very accomplished! We will most definitely try this again next year. Thank you for a great vacation experience for these San francisco kids.
Mike at the shop helped me wax the board, he is awesome. At the beach i met Pete and then Jake and they were both awesome. Thanks, i highly recommend others to get out with them
Pete and Charlie are awesome!!
Qualified instructor, personal attention, attentive
Lesson could not have been better. Peter was pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. All was great!
They were very prompt in the lessons without wasting any time. By the 4 run my daughter was able to stand up and ride a wave. Highly recommended!
Jake was awesome, it was only my second time surfing and he was so patient and an amazing teacher, I stood up more times and actually felt like a surfer. I cannot wait to get back on the board and will definitely do it with Island again!
Jacob did a great job with one on one instruction. I learned a lot in just one hour
I had a lot of fun! thanks!
Cole was great, he gave me good instruction and corrections and I had fun
We (my wife, myself and our two kids -- 7 and 10) took a group surf class on Friday morning. We came back on Saturday with my wife getting further instruction. We had a great time with Peter and the guys. We are hooked and will be back soon.
Cole was a great instructor and took the time to relate to my son and get to know his skill level to take him a new level of learning.
The lesson was all I hoped for. Our young surf teacher Gordy made my son feel successful and brave. The more seasoned surfer on then beach called the two in off the water, offered input on helping my son pop up and not knee then go up. My hope is that my son will fall in love with surfing sooner then his Mom did.
Instructor was very patient with my 8 year old grandson who had never been on a board before! It was a positive experience for my Nic!
Jordie was a terrific teacher, my grandson was so happy that now surfing is what he wants to do. He felt very proud of himself for accomplishing what he did, Jordie handeled him perfectly.
My daughter enjoyed her first surf lesson very much.
new to surfing. very helpful info.
Everyone was great. Aden was so helpful and made my daughter so comfortable. Will be going with the surf summer camp for sure.
Peter gave an hour long lesson to our kids 12, 11 and 7 and they loved it! I would totally recommend him and elemental again. I think we were comfortable with Peter with our kids out there because he was a fit older guy that I presumed was also a parent - he definitely acted like it, even if he wasn't. Really nice, well versed and great mannerism.
Great lesson with me and my 6 year old son! Both of us got up and he wants to keep going! Thanks Aiden.
I had a great instructor. Patient, friendly, and fun! Thank you so much! I had the best time ever!!!! I can not wait to do it again!
Our instructor Peter was fantastic. He got our family of 4 up on our feet riding small waves in the first hour.
