  • We had an absolutely fantastic day surfing with Danny. He's a really great instructor and took us to the best local spot for some great surfs - the waves were big enough to be cool (haha) but not too big for beginners. We all stood up and rode waves solo by the end of the lesson and we were all beginners! He also brings a water proof camera to take pictures (see attached) which turned out awesome! After the lesson he took us to an incredible local Japanese BBQ spot. It's clear that Danny cares about creating a genuine connection and ensuring that his customers having an awesome time.
