Our private lessons are available as individual lessons or up to groups of three if you would like to share the experience with a friend or two.

The first 20 minutes of the lesson is based on the beach going over how to properly move from the prone to standing position (the pop up), water safety, etiquette and how to maneuver the surfboard in the water. We will spend the rest of the time in the water working on applying the skills we learned on shore. The technique we use is highly effective and nearly all students can catch their own waves and stand on their own by the end of the lesson.

You don’t have to be a champion swimmer or have tons of open water experience to learn to surf as most of our lesson takes place in water that you can stand in. We ask that our students be water safe and have the basic ability to swim.

We provide all the gear you need other than a great attitude and a sense of adventure! Come surf with us!

Please bring a printed copy of your email confirmation with you to the lesson.

All gear is provided though we do recommend that you bring a swimsuit (preferably one that can be worn under a wetsuit), sunblock for your face and neck and a good amount of water to keep you hydrated throughout the lesson.

The are no lockers available at our beach location though we leave most of our gear within view of where the location takes place. As such, we recommend that you leave valuables at home or safely locked within your vehicle.

After years living in LA, I finally decided to get my first surf lesson. I kinda got up. Really cool feeling. Great instructor. Going tomorrow for my second lesson…
