It is an amazing trip for surfers and non-surfers alike. 


I just came back from my fifth trip to Corky's.   Now I'm back at my desk job frequently distracted with memories of the week of great
surf I just scored and fantasizing about the next trip.  Five trips.  Different times of the year.  Never disappointed with the surf.  From
the moment of my excited arrival to the emotional departure I was in Corky and Raquel's friendly and secure hands.  The family style meals, the people, the stories, the jokes, the dogs and cats and goat, the 80 degree water and of course the fantastic surf.  It really doesn't get any better than this.

I have always experienced wonderful times on my surf trips to Corky's.  From the time I am picked up from the airport to the time I am dropped off everything is taken care of by Corky and his staff.   Great surf, warm water, amazing food, Corkys custom drinks, comfortable private rooms, internet access, professional coaching and more is Corky's way of saying Mi Casa Su Casa. At any level of surfing everyone will have a surf trip of a lifetime.

Corky and Raquel are the perfect hosts to what, in my opinion, is the ultimate surf getaway.  Raquel is a fantastic cook and Corky is, well…. Corky.  There is none other.  He can improve your surfing with just a few words and make you laugh your butt off with many.  It’s like staying with friends without the pressure of having to deal with what “they want to do.”  This trip is all about what “you” want to do.  I have come by myself, with my family and with a couple of pals.  Each time the adventure was fantastic.  Their massage girl, Hilda, is incredible.  The neighbor, Timoteo..”the Iguana” Dorsey is an adventure in himself… will love him.  This is an upscale surf trip for those who want something better.

Their home is beautiful, the food is to die for, the surf is incredible, the water is perfect, the vibe is tranquil and peaceful, there is everything you need right there and both my wife and I love it.  Corky taught my kids to surf and improved my skills in only a few days.  We plan on becoming regulars.

After one trip to Corky’s house I felt like part of the family.  After a dozen I know I am because if I misbehave he makes me sleep with the neighbors goat.  Raquel is wonderful and has the best hair in the world.  I keep a board there and try to make it at least two to four times a year.  You can get in more turns on one wave at that spot than you can in a whole month in Huntington Beach.

It was the best trip we ever had, anywhere.  It is sort of like if you were a golfer and got to spend a week at Arnold Palmers house.  What would you pay to hang with Arnie, play golf everyday with him and get pointers?  And on top of that have his wife cook for you every night and listen to stories about golf that would blow your mind.  This is like that for a surfer.  Corky is a very fun dude and his wife is not only beautiful but really a sweet person.  We became instant friends with both of them.
