“There are a million ways to surf and as long as you’re smiling, you’re doing it right.” ~Unknown
Once you stand up on a wave and glide down the face, you will probably be hooked for life.
Learning how to surf can be a fun, challenging and extremely gratifying experience! We offer surf lessons for kids and adults - first-timers, beginners and more experienced levels are all welcome. It’s our goal that you learn to stand up and ride the wave, but also that you feel comfortable being in the water and become knowledgeable about ocean conditions. We will spend time on the beach talking about the conditions before we enter the water. We firmly believe that the more you understand the ocean and waves, the faster you will progress and the better surfing experience you will have.
The waves can be crowded in Southern California, so we’ll also focus on crowd safety and awareness, as well as basic surfing etiquette. We’ll practice the “pop-up” on the beach and then head out to catch some waves...
Once you get that first good ride, you’ll really feel what surfing is all about!
All of our lessons are custom, private one-on-one or a private small group lesson. Private group lessons are with you and your friends who you’d like to surf with. We do not do open group lessons. Lessons are 2 hours (from the time we meet to getting back to the parking lot) and include use of our quality soft surfboards and wetsuits.
**We now offer large group surf lessons or corporate surf events**
We offer surf lessons year-round at Zuma Beach in Malibu, Santa Monica Beach and Venice Beach. Given the right conditions, we also do lessons at other prime beginner and intermediate surf spots around Los Angeles.
The beach breaks of Zuma, Santa Monica, Venice, and El Porto offer great, consistent waves for beginner surfers when the swell is small. When the surf gets bigger, these spots become some of the most challenging and most rewarding surfing beaches in the Los Angeles area.
Sunset Beach and Point Dume are point breaks that offer nice long rides with protection from our prevailing westerly wind. The waves are generally nice and easy - perfect for beginners, as well as for intermediate and advanced surfers.

✦ I decided to get my sister surfing lessons for her birthday and figured I would tag along as well. Kai was a phenomenal instructor making sure we not only understood the technical aspect of catching a wave and standing up on the board, but also how to identify your surroundings and be aware of nature around you. It was an amazing time, we can't wait to get back out there. ~ Guy & Galit
✦ Thanks so much for the great lesson you gave my sister Colleen and my husband Mark on Friday. Colleen & I used to be big snowboarders back in the day, so we both know how important it is to send inexperienced visitors to an expert instructor. ~ Laura

✦ Well, you were right and Jack does officially have the surf bug. He wanted to send you a picture of his new wetsuit and board, as well as a few pictures from your days surfing.

We will surely call you the next time we head south and we will keep you posted on the progress! ~ Bridget & Jack
