Testimonials

  • Review by Standley from Kuala Lumpur

    "I went there along and came back with a lot of friends and acquaintances. I've got exactly what I wanted: good company for surfing! Surf teachers, stuff, atmosphere - everything was perfect and for me it was amazing one week of joyful and funny surfing lessons. It was so good that I've decided to extend my being there for one week more, I simply couldn't left all of it just after one week. I recommend EndlessSummer for all beginners and not only for them. You will spend your time in very memorable way."

  • Review by Matthias Stein from Switzerland

    "Our children, Jonas und Salome, 15 and 17 years old, visited the surf and turf camp last year. They both said that these were the best holidays of their lives. They had an excellent time. The camp is organized by Jason Senn. I got to know him when I picked up my children after the camp. Jason is an extremely kind and reliable person. The kids liked him very much. There are some people working for Jason and taking care for the kids. His staff is all extremely kind as well as very professional. Our children chose the surf and turf camp. They spent the morning in the sea on the surf boards and were then transferred to the golf course. The surf and golf lessons were both excellent. The golf course is fantastic, and Randy, the golf teacher, was awarded as one of the best golf teachers of the US. Randy is extremely kind as well. Most of the kids who attended the camp were Americans. There were also some students from Europe and South America. Jonas and Salome were picked up at Los Angeles airport. The transfer worked excellent. The camp itself is situated near the town of San Clemente in a natural reserve. The beach, situated at the bottom of the cliffs, is wonderful, and it is known as one of the best surf spots of California. Jonas will attend the camp again this summer, this time for three weeks. I can highly recommend the camp."

  • Review by Bob from Chicago, USA

    "I just wanted to say thank you to Jason and the gang for a great experience. It was just what I needed. It was good to feel the pain and exhilaration that I used to feel and great to know that I could still accomplish something at my age. I was also pleased to see how hard Michael tried. Sometimes I worry about him being a wimp when I see him vegging out around the house. I think the experience made Jon and I realize we need to pay a little more attention to our bodies in our busy urban lives, too. We balanced out our trip with a luxurious weekend in Los Angeles, which was fun in a different way. It was rough going back to work on Monday. I was glad I had the fourth off to recuperate. I am on my way to Chicago for a meeting and the American Airlines magazine has an article about the best places to get wet this summer San Onofre State Beach made it into the article."
