from New Orleans and was
recently in LA on Business trip. Matt worked with my schedule
and gave me the opportunity to take a lesson. I learned more
in one day than the 2 years I have spent surfing on my own. I
surf the Gulf Coast and I have been able to take back with me valuable
experience I might not have been able to
obtain. I recommend anyone experienced or not to
take a lesson with Matt!
I just wanted to say thank you for my surfing lessons. I really
appreciate your willingness to teach me yourself. I feel really safe
and comfortable with you and that is very helpful since I am
self-conscious due to my fitness level and body size. I am committed to
becoming a skilled surfer and look forward to learning more.
See you soon.
