A 5-Star Experience With A 5-Star Teacher! - This is our second time having family surf lessons with Marcello! We enjoyed every minute of our lessons! Marcello is not just a good teacher but a good human being. It was cold today and he was very thoughtful to bring wet suits for our family and he brought his son along to help our little kids in the water. Marcello is a blessing to us and we are very thankful for such a fun family experience. We will be back to see you again Marcello!

Saving the Best for Last - EZride Surf School was an amazing adventure for my son and two grandsons for their first time surfing! Marcello was the absolute best instructor you could have asked for and went over and above with instructions and length of time with the lessons. Although the waves were pretty small, it was perfect for our beginner surfers! My grandsons are hooked! It was a little chilly, so Marcello provided our family with wet suits to help. He kept in great contact with us up to the time we met him in Boca Raton at the pavilion. If you decide to book with Marcello through EZride Surf School, please book directly with him to eliminate the extra communication that sometimes leads to confusion with a 3rd party.

Saving the best for last! - The surfing lessons with Marcello at EZRide Surf were spectacular!! My son and his two boys, age 9 and 10 were so excited!! Marcello made sure the boys understood the safety and educated them on the ocean and the waves. He did such a great job instructing them that the boys were up and rode the wave all the way to the shore on their first try!! Marcello gave them some extra time in the water and they absolutely loved it!!

Great first time surfing with Marcello! - Trying to surf has always been on my bucket list, and today (at age 60!) I finally took a lesson with Marcello. What an encouraging and patient instructor! I had a blast and learned so much about the whole sport. Thank you Marcello for a wonderful and memorable experience. I can’t wait to try it again!

Want surf lessons? Marcello is your guy! Amazing experience! - Want to take surf lessons? Look no further because Marcello is the best! My 5 year old daughter says she want to be a surfer when she grows up, and has been begging to go surfing. So we booked a family lesson with Marcello to do during our vacation. First off, his communication with his customers is impeccable! He always called or text when he said he would with whatever information we needed to have for our lesson. When we got to the lesson, he was so patient and kind with our daughters (ages 5 and 7). Once we got into the water, he was so good and kept reassuring me (the mama) to have fun and focus on learning to surf myself because he had my girls taken care of. Well both of my girls were up on the first wave. His instruction is clear and he is very knowledgeable. He was so kind with our daughters and instilled confidence in them (not only about surfing, but also just about being in the water). Our family of 4 had such a blast and we all agree that our surf lesson was the best part of our vacation!

Beginner level surfing lesson - Highly recommended opportunity for anyone who is interested in having fun and giving surfing a try. This review was based upon a 2-person combined lesson my 17yr old daughter and her friend while visiting the area. Marcello is an excellent teacher. He takes the time to connect with the students and explains the basics before getting into the water. Once in the water his students listen and respond to him in excellent fashion. Low pressure and a wonderful life lesson/experience while visiting the area. Communications with Marcello were excellent and he relayed all relevant information needed to plan the lesson in Boca Raton ( 15 miles and 45 min north of Ft Lauderdale with traffic) via voice and text. If lessons are in Boca, pay the $20 all-day parking option at the South Pavilion. Parents/family can bring a folding chair or beach towel and enjoy time on the beach as well while watching others learn. Trust Marcello, relax and have fun. Very worthwhile and strongly recommended.

Exceptional surfing teachers for young children! - My daughter - a shy, 8 year-old girl and my nephew, 6, took surfing lessons with Marcelo and his wonderful son Victor. They were not only able to very quickly teach them the basics of water safety and surfing, but beyond that, instilled a sense of confidence and pride in my daughter that I haven’t seen in a while. Marcelo was diligent and professional, and helped us plan the activity with beach recommendations and the best time for our 2 young novices. Both kids truly enjoyed their surf lessons and would go back in a minute. The parents, too! Hands down - best part of our vacation so far and a definite 100% recommendation! Thank you Marcelo and Victor!
