We want to live at The Line Up & surf all day!

From the second we walked in, we couldn’t wait to get in the water. My two teenage daughters were nervous at first, but my youngest, who had been the most nervous, took to it like a seasoned pro, surfing on her first wave. My other daughter and I took a couple waves to “get it.” The coaching staff and visiting pro surfers all gave us tips that made learning quick, easy and fun. We all agreed that it was an incredible experience and we can’t wait to go again.

This place is so refreshing and spacious

Just feeling like we are away from the congestion of downtown and the weather was perfect. Had a blast out here. Lots to do, easy to spend the whole day out here and relax under the warm sun.
