woman Fantastic experience

I'm so glad I chose Hang Loose Surf Club. The owner answered all my questions before and after I booked. Our instructor always stayed in the water with us. I learned not all surf schools require teachers to do so - scary! Bottom line: learn to surf with Hang Loose Surf Club. They are an awesome school for surfers of all ages!

tree They make surfing easy for anyone!

Can’t say enough good things about this place! Every single person was so nice throughout the entire experience. Our instructor was so patient and so friendly. He got us all up on our first try. He was so nice and I would love to come back and get more lessons! Five stars!

landscape We were all able to surf!

Kevin is an excellent teacher. As there were many other surfing lessons being conducted in the same area, we noticed that we seemed to be doing better than most. Four of us are over 50 and we did quite well. We thoroughly enjoy watching the videos that Abner took of us.

woman A blast!

Can't say enough good things about our experience with Hang Loose. We were a family of 4 with 2 preteens and all 4 of us enjoyed the lesson and rode many waves in. Kevin was outstanding and was able to give us each tips that made us successful in our first experience surfing. Highly recommend!

parachute Wonderful Experience

I booked a lesson for my son (14y/o), wife and myself (46 y/o). We arrived 30 minutes early as instructed and got fitted in our protective gear.Kevin was our instructor, he was fantastic. He was excellent and very encouraging. My son caught on very quickly and my wife and I were able to ride the waves. Excellent experience. Fun time!

Thanks to the team at Hang Loose Surf Club! I had never tried surfing before and was so stoked to ride my first wave on my second attempt! Their tips saw most the group catching waves within the first few attempts. It was so much fun and I highly recommend this to those wanting to learn to surf! Thanks again guys!
