The term ‘party wave’ is used by our whole family now

I’m Olivia, and last August my dad Richard and I visited San Diego from England and had a surf lesson with Chris. I just wanted to pass on my thank you’s to him. We went surfing in Cornwall yesterday and what he taught us in summer really helped, I felt so confident! I was even doing the 180 switch which definitely impressed our family! The term ‘party wave’ is used by our whole family now, and I’m sure it’ll become a tradition for years! Here’s a photo of us in summer during our lesson, and also one from yesterday too. Thank you again

Pacific Beach Surf School has more than met our expectations

In 2018 the hotel was looking for a first class surf school that can continue the service our customers demand and expect. Pacific Beach Surf School has more than met our expectations. The guest feedback from both travelers and corporate team building events have been a five star rating.
