We are closed for surf lessons temporarily, but that does not mean that you cannot surf this summer.
HERE IS OUR BEACH LESSON, SO YOU CAN TRY TO SURF ON YOUR OWN : HOW TO SURF GUIDE
Surf schools have only been around for 20 years or so, and we were one of the first. Before then, everyone learned on their own, maybe with the help of a friend or family member. But now, because we are closed due to the covid, you might have to do it the old fashioned way, that is, without a surf school the way we all learned during the early 1960’s when we were kids.
Luckily, my parents liked the beach, and so always took us kids there when we were very young. In San Diego at the beaches, bodysurfing was a more important sport than baseball when I was a little kid. Consequently, myself, brothers and all the kids learned to bodysurf before they learned to surf.
Then everyone rode a plywood boogie board, called a “belly board” or a “knee board” if it was possible to kneel on it.
In any case, while we are closed now, you can still go into the ocean and swim, bodysurf, boogie board, and we encourage it. Go near a lifeguard tower if you are lacking in confidence. Even ask the lifeguard where it is safe, and that way, he will be sure to be watching you.
To help you if you want to try it on your own, we have our basic beach lesson and some tips in our HOW TO SURF GUIDE.
We miss everyone and will be back on the other side of covid, to again take everyone surfing like we have done for the past 17 years.
