Don't just take our word on how we are doing! Take a look at just a small slice of our past students and decide for yourself!

This camp is da bomb!

Hello - We attended the Pizza Party last night and I wanted to thank you SOOOOO much. It was SO nice of you to have such a party. We had NO idea of all the fun stuff you had to raffle off. We expected to win nothing (as it is with usual raffle deals, right?) We won a lot of stuff (probably too much!) but our son had the best time. He won the first surfboard raffled off. Wecame home with lots of goodies and wanted to make sure you knew how much we appreciated it and what fun that was. Loved the pizza from Pizza Port too. Could not have been better!!!!

Thanks again,
Jennifer, Alan and NickTrafton!

I cannot thank you enough for making my daughters experience so memorable. All she talks about is how great you and your staff are and what a terrific time she had during your surf camp this summer. We have told a lot of people about your camp and we will definitely come back next summer with my other daughter also. Thanks again.


Hi JP,

My son Leo took part in your surf camp on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd, myself Alex and hubby Luc on the 3rd and I just wanted to let you know how lovely your surf camp was. You and all the instructors really made it great, especially the competition at the end, the whole 3 days had a really great vibe.

Once again thank you for a great 3 days, you were lovely with the kids (and adults!!!) and we loved being apart of it.

Thank you for a great evening surfing. I had a wonderful time and felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. We ate at Cedar Creek for dinner, very nice recommendation. Food was great, atmosphere was amazing.



I have just returned to Northern California and I wanted to send you a quick email to say thanks for the surf lesson. I really appreciated you taking the time....being my first time in the ocean I was a little nervous but you quickly eased my fears and made the entire experience really fun... even getting taking for a ride in the washing machine... hahaha

Dear J.P.,

Thank you forsetting up the surf camp this year. I improved so much that I can pump a wave. Thanks to you, I got quite a big push in surfng and made new friends. I also enjoyed the raffle you set up for us. The prizes were great! I got Rainbows, t-shirts, DVDs and more. Plus, the backpack prize inspired me to get one too. I am now ready for next summer. Thanks to you, I will be surfing the summer days away with my good friends! Thanks again!


Dear J.P.,

Thank you for teaching me how to surf. Also thank you for all of the fun times this summer. I look forward to joining again next summer.


Dear J.P. and all the instructors,

What an amazing week my 3 kids had at your surf camp. We have been to other surf camps before, but this one was everything we could ever want it to be. I was so impressed by the caliber of your staff. You were all encouraging, enthusiastic, energetic, kind, fun, and very professional. Every single one of you were 100% on when you were out in the water. You kept track of every kid and hussled to help every kid catch waves. You all worked so hard! My kids had blast while learning to surf. I cannot thank all of you enough for an incredible week.

With much appreciation,
Jordan, Jolie, Talia, and Rio Calvert

This camp is the BEST....!!!!

I just wanted to say thanks. You guys are great and Madison loves surf camp. Because of our experience with your camp we are now looking at our family getting into surfing together. (stand up paddle board for daddy..lol) I just wanted to share what a blessing you are to people whether they all realize it or not!!

Thank you so much for the surf lessons, they were so much fun! It was a great way to keep on learning. The surf contest was excellent. Thank so much again for letting me come. I cannot wait until next summer!!!!


I just wanted to let you know Mariah got on the Marco Forster surf team! All those years with you paid off. She had to tryout and, they only picked 2 from her heat of 10 girls. I was amazed at what she retained from learning with you. Yeah...



Thank you so much for supporting military kids and their families. Your donation will allow Mary Fay Pendletons PTA to buy some great things for our school!

Hi Michele,

I hope all is well with you and JP! I wanted to say thank you for providing Luke the opportunity to participate in camp last week. He had anabsolute blast! He enthused, "I am so glad I did that surf camp. I learned so much & can now surf all summer!" Terrific testimony.

I hope you received some positive response from your ad and generated additional registration.
Thanks so much,
The Local Dish

Hi Michele,

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you again for all your help in making sure that we signed up for the surf camp today. We have been raving about it all day! We ALL had a great time- thanks so much for your follow-up. AND, your husband and his terrific crew were really the nicest and most helpful group. We agreed that their positive energy was good for the surfing...and just good for the soul :)

Hope you all have a terrific rest of the summerand best to you,

My daughter and I attended afternoon surf camp today (Monday 7/15) and we had a blast. I am a little older then the typical student (by about 30 years) so I was a little worried. I can not express in words how wonderful the instructors were. I recieved more encouraging words during that class then any class I have ever been in. Everyone recieved individual attention and instruction. I want to give a special thank you to Chase and JP for keeping me on the top of the waves. I do not think i would have survived without their help. We had so much fun, we plan to sign up for another lesson this week.

Michelle Greenleaf

I had so much fun taking this class. I have lived in San Clemente for 7 years and every year I tell myself I want to learn how to surf, and this year I did it! The instructors had me standing up the first time I tried thanks to their advice and instructions. I am a little older than the average student (35), but you really are never too old to learn. THANK YOU!

Hello, Michele!

I just want to thank you again for all of your help. Our girls felt like royalty in the camp and all would like to go again sometime. You, your husband, daughter and the whole crew made the day and our trip very special - thank you!
