I have over 20 years of surfing the west coast and various waves around the world, almost a decade of coaching experience in tennis and lacrosse, as well as holding numerous nonprofits, mentorship programs, camp counselor and volunteer positions over the years. I pours my heart into every lesson to give students a totally radical experience, nurturing growth in the water, mind, and heart. I am soon to be a father, and have more than enough patience to meet everyone's needs. I have lifeguard training and am CPR certified. On occasion when the waves are just right and students show enough potential, I will extend the lesson and surf side by with students as a bonus because I genuinely love watching and teaching people to learn to surf. Keeping my students warm is important so I use only top of the line equipment during my lessons.

I will take you to one of Monterey, Carmel, or Pacific Groves premier surf spots. Wherever the waves are best at that time of the day.

Spent an exhilarating two hours with Zane who coped with a beginner & an intermediate plus gave us a feeling on how to read the waves

Zane is a wonderful teacher who puts students at immediate ease and knows how to thoughtfully coach without coming off as imposing or judgmental. Nothing replaces a great teacher, and Zane is precisely that.

Zane is a wonderful instructor and really focused on making the experience as positive as possible. Zane offered tremendous insight into surfing but also sprinkled in some life lessons along the way. All in all a wonderful experience and I'm looking forward to catching my next wave!
