Darlan was a great host. The day we had the surfing lesson, there were no waves at all. He rescheduled the appointment to another day and we had a blast on the waves the other day. Since we were first-timers, under his guidance, we actually were able to ride some waves! Would recommend to anyone.

My girlfriend and I had a great time learning to surf with Darlan. He made it a quick and easy learn and gave us a new passion to get into in the future. Fun guy to be around and I highly recommend him if you want to get into surfing.

My 2 children and I had the best time! My kids did so good they would have kept going all day if they could. Darlan was great. The only thing I wish was different is Darlan talking more to my kids. My kids said they had a amazing time but my son said he wished Darlan would of talked more to him. lol If we go back we will definitely do it again. Mydaughter did the. best and now wants her own surf board! Definitely worth the experience.

Conflicting info on Airbnb about meeting place. Simple fix would avoid confusion. Otherwise everything was great. Darlan was awesome....will be back in future...

My girls, 6 & 8, had never surfed before and Darlan was super patient. Both girls were able to pop up before the lesson was over and they had a blast. So great!
