Surfing will enhance your life and we want to pass on our love and stoke for the sport to you.
Our goal is to provide the highest quality instruction to people of all ages for a positive surfing experience. At the heart of our teaching philosophy is our commitment to the individual and we make sure that every student gets personal attention and instruction. Our surfing instructor training, and the equipment we use, better allows beginners to catch and ride waves.
All instruction will start with a beach lesson, followed by further instruction in the water. All surf students will receive top-level equipment: soft boards designed specifically for teaching and to keep you warm and comfortable in the water, XCEL 4/3mm wetsuits and booties. Our proven teaching methods and specifically designed soft surfboards will make your day a fun and memorable one.
You will learn from the best professional instructors who are all licensed and insured, CPR and First Aid certified with over 15 years of experience teaching people how to surf. We teach ocean safety, wave dynamics, paddling, surfboard control, correct body positioning, riding techniques and general water awareness.
