Our goal is that by the end of the day, you are able to go out and surf on your own. You don’t need lessons until you are surfing like Kelly Slater, you only need lessons until you are able to catch and ride the easiest of waves straight in, Waikiki in the 1950s style. Then you are on your way to improving your skills, and its all fun along the way.
Learn how to surf, we will have you surfing on the first time out, get “surfed out” every day. Plenty of top notch instructors, great equipment, and fast results. Specializing in beginners, even if you have never surfed before, don’t worry! We will have you surfing in no time.
No deposit – Easy cancellation policy
CUSTOMER REVIEW FROM YELP: Absolutely the best surf camp on moonlight beach, my son did four days and had a ball, lots of instructors, lots of help it’s all about surf, they get them up on the board so fast. There were other schools on the beach and Leucadia Surf School stood out so much as by far the best camp. Would recommend it to all my friends. Was totally impressed from start to finish.
CUSTOMER REVIEW FROM YELP: My husband and I signed our Grandson up for one lesson last week. He was in town for six days and we really wanted him to spend time in the water. We opted for one day of surf lessons not knowing if he would like it. Gerry had him standing on his board by the end of the first lesson. We ended up cancelling everything else we had planned and just let him go to Gerry’s surf school and catch waves. He had so much fun! The instructors were wonderful and very encouraging and we did not have to worry about wetsuits or boards. We did stay to watch the class and always felt that our child was safe. We love the way the school is run and how the lessons are set up. The students participate from the very beginning and they sure respect each other in the water. I would recommend this school for anyone. Thank you all so much for providing such a wonderful experience for a young boy. Oh, and the waves were all “10 footers” when he talked to his parents.
In the surf camps, we get you standing up in the whitewater, then take you to the unbroken waves on the outside, when the conditions are easy. You always have a choice to be inside in the whitewater, or “outside” on the unbroken waves, whatever your comfort level, with plenty of instructors everywhere.
If you are “intermediate”, good in the whitewater, standing up every time, we can help you to surf the “outside” unbroken waves, conditions permitting.
We go north on Moonlight Beach, the main beach in Encinitas, to the last uncrowded beach in Southern California. There are restrooms, a snack bar, and a lifeguard tower at Moonlight Beach.
Parents and other friends and family members are always welcome on the beach at surf camp.
Everyone in the surf camp of 3 days or more gets a free Leucadia Surf School trucker hat, and we have a pizza party on Friday. 2-1 to 4-1 student to instructor ratio. Plenty of instructors with you at all times.
