Every summer my family does a weekend trip to learn to surf better. Nothing fancy, but we always have a blast. We use Huntington Beach Surf Lessons (http://www.huntingtonbeachsurfinglessons.com/) every year and we’re at a point where they actually remember us! Marcy, our daughter got up last year and was actually doing a couple carves this year. For food, we go to St George’s Pizza where they have homemade Calzones and an awesome meatball sub. We stayed at the holiday inn which is nothing fancy but closeby and does the trick.
