Father & Son Learn to Surf at Witch’s Rock Surf Camp
October 3, 2013
Sorry that we didn’t meet last week. I also didn’t meet the owner, so perhaps you wouldn’t mind passing this message along.
The entire experience was excellent from start to finish. I came with my son, Sean, a 22 year old novice. He had only been out in white water two or three times.
The experience started very well with friendly, prompt, and professional service from you and Elizabeth, who I did meet. Smooth pickup at the airport. We rode in with a couple (Holly and Ryan) who were on their 10th trip. A good sign.
The greeting and atmosphere all around were very low key and laid back, which suited us fine. Restaurant staff were friendly and the food was good.
The main thing I want to pass along to the owners was that I had outstanding surf instruction. We started with Andres, who got my son up and riding on green waves in no time. We then went out on a boat with Flash later in the week. Flash was excellent. He stayed behind the break coaching, pushing and helping with wave selection. My best photo of the week came from a wave Flash told me to take. When my son got caught inside, Flash told me to enjoy my own surfing, and that he would look after my son, which he did.
I have had a handful of surf instructors – Australia, California and here in Canada. The instructors at Witch’s were better. They took pride in their work and our improvement. Made the trip. A bonus that we saw them socially too – in town at the bar and on the beach joining in at volleyball.
Robert August and the video and photos I was able to buy were also great.
A great week – I’ll be back.
