This was fantastic. There were three of us and we had two guides to help us and they were great. The water was perfectly calm so it made it easier to balance once up. They were very cruisy so we could take our time and stop and swim if we wanted to. Highly recommended.

Girls Who Surf is a great company to go surfing with for the first time! I and one other person were in the semi-private class, meaning there was plenty of attention for both of us from our instructor. He chose a good spot for us to start with enough waves to actually surf on but not so much that we'd get swamped on our first attempts.
We spent several hours out on the water getting a feel for what we were doing, how to paddle and balance and plenty of other nuances. Our instructor was very friendly and easy-going and was very encouraging. He happily answered any questions we had and kept up conversation while we were hanging out waiting for waves.
Pick-up and drop-off were both timely and very convenient. The equipment we used was in great condition and sized well for us.
All in all, a great company for first-time surfers!
