What you'll do

We will teach you all the basic surf knowledge. Our school uses a unique technique which helps you learn how to stand up on a surfboard in less than two hours, even if you are a complete beginner. You do not have to wait weeks to successfully stand on a surfboard.

We cover everything you need to know to become a surfer in two hours. The first half hour is spent on land discussing the ins and outs of surf technique where you will learn the basic rules and surf safety. The remainder of the time is spent in the water with your instructor and later you can practice by yourself.

By your very first lesson, you’ll be riding waves and feeling the joy that surfing brings! We offer the best value beginner surfing lessons available because you get the most optimal student to instructor class ratio. We use a part of the beach that is safe and perfect for surfing even if you have never been on a surfboard before.

Diego was our instructor and it was absolutely amazing. He broke down the basics and there was only about 5 of us total and everyone was really friendly. You definitely learn a lot about surfing! Nik was also good with communicating with me whenever I had a question

Nik is very funny and enthusiastic. Todd was our personal instructor and he did an amazing job motivating us and always encouraging us. Caught a few waves and had a blast

My sisters and I took this lesson- we had so much fun and were standing on our boards right away! It was such a great time and we learned so much!

Could be better. The surfing part was fine but the Host showed up wearing a black and white flag on his hat. Racism and sexism were present throughout the experience. Wouldn’t recommend for a friend.

This was an awesome experience! Nik was so so helpful and I was able to get up standing on my board pretty quickly. I definitely recommend this experience if you have ever thought about trying out surfing.

Nik is a lovely teacher. He explains things really well and has loads of patience. So did the girl that was assisting him, though I cannot remember her name at this time. Very great experience, highly recommend!
