overall I thought the experience was exactly what it was used for for beginner surfers. The only thing that I thought was difficult is when we had to move the lesson to a different Beach. It was hard to get to the beach through the traffic so make sure you plan accordingly for travel in California.

As a first time surfing experience I can really recommend the 2 hour beginner lesson with Alex & Tatjana. After a short introduction of the most important rules for surfing we started practicing the basics on the beach before we went into the water. Catching the first waves was an amazing feeling and the instructions/support of Alex were/was very helpful. In addition to this you get the chance to take professional pictures and save the memory forever. It was a fantastic experience!
