What Our Clients Say

"

“I’ve had the pleasure of taking a surfing lesson with Savannah at Sister Jo. I’m a beginner and need all the starter help I can get. Savannah provided just that. Not only was the experience super-rich in information and technique but it was fun and easy. She made any reservations about getting on the board and feeling like a beginner, wash away with the tide. I highly recommend Savannah for your next surfing lesson.”
