This is the only surf lesson you will ever need to start surfing

In our group and private surf lessons, we try to get you to the point of catching whitewater and standing up.  We instruct you in what kind of board you need, and what type of wave, a basic orientation to your new sport.  Once you are catching waves and riding in the whitewater, then all you have to do is keep doing that and your surfing will progress.  No need for further lessons.  We try to get the job done in one lesson.

Quick Results – Surf Right Away

We understand that many of you are only in town for a short time, and have to get some surf while you are here! This is our specialty, getting you up and riding in easy waves on easy boards right away, even if you have never surfed before.

Learn to Surf on your own

Our surf lessons are designed to teach you not only how to surf, but how to learn to surf on your own without taking further surf lessons.

Go surfing instead of going to the gym

If you are just visiting the San Diego area, don’t live near the surf and don’t plan to continue surfing, you can come out and surf with us purely for the physical benefits which surfing provides.

Stress Relief

Getting out into the clean water of a beautiful beach and riding the waves is not only an excellent workout, it is also refreshing, rejuvenating, and a great stress reliever which will leave you pleasantly exhausted with a healthy appetite and maybe even the desire to go out and try it again.

You can do it!

You may not think that you would be able to surf, but with our help, we guarantee that within 1/2 hour of hitting the surf we’ll have you standing up and riding the whitewater to the beach with a big smile on your face.
