I wanted to try surfing for the first time and picked San Diego Surf School out of a hat online for a one on one lesson. I’m glad I did! My instructor, Gene, was right on time (a bit early, even), right where they said he’d be. He had a board and wetsuit ready to go for me. After a quick but useful tutorial on the beach, we hit the waves. Gene was easygoing and helpful throughout the lesson, and after an hour and a half I felt like I had a good feel for it — I was paddling, popping up, and catching some (small) waves on my own. I highly recommend these guys for beginners. They’re friendly and professional. I’d definitely go back for more.
