Instructor was great and really helped us enjoy the day.
I have spent my whole life skateboarding. Always watched surfing and wanted to do it. It just seems natural to me. So, I decided to. After researching where to begin, honestly, surfing is a universe. Which can be intimidating when you don’t know where to start. You guys at Nor Cal are awesome! I felt warmly welcomed. Keith was an amazing instructor! He’s such a cool guy. He gave us knowledge and then told us to clear our heads and relax... instinct will take over. He was super patient and supportive. I feel that I left my lesson with enough beginning knowledge to get back out in the water and work on improving my skills which I will definitely do. Thanks again Nor Cal crew!!! Thanks so much Keith!!!
Amazing experience. Keith is great and whole service was awesome
Surfing has been on my bucket list for a long time. Nor Cal Surf Shop made my first experience incredible. We arrived early and were taken to the back right away to suite up. There was not any waiting around before our instructor Keith handed us our boards and we headed to the beach. Keith provided us valuable instructions before we walked into the ocean and our lesson began. I stood up a few times which was astonishing! Keith provided countless opportunities to do so by getting me on great waves. My husband looked like an expert, which he always does at everything he tries, but I know credit is also due to Keith. Our lesson was excellent to say the least. I am so stoked about our next opportunity to get in the ocean. It will certainly be beneficial to get a few more lessons in before chasing the waves without a guide. Thank you Keith! Our lesson was priceless and our surfing experience remarkable. Thank you Nor Cal Surf Shop for helping me check off a bucket list item with blissful ease. Can’t wait to do it again.
Rob was so awesome as a surf instructor. Patient. Enthusiastic. Non-judgmental. Pushed me a bit, too. Can’t say enough good things.
I loved my lesson with Rob. He was patient and knowledgeable, and most importantly, surfing safety is number one to him. I learned a lot and I can't wait to have another lesson.
Everything was perfect: the waves, the service, friendliness of the staff and expertise of the instructor. Highly recommended!
Well instructed, we got good material and had a great day! We could use the material all day, even after the instruction!
The Nor Cal Surf shop is the greatest 😊 super helpful and awesome staff! Rob was our surf coach and he was not only funny and fun to be around but very informative and helpful. I plan on coming back very frequently. Thank you guys for making my first lesson the best one even without the best ocean conditions.
Our teacher was great. He was understanding, smart, and very helpful for me and my young boys.
