surf lessons

Our semi-private Laguna Beach surf lessons are limited to 3 students to every instructor. We teach at Thalia St, Laguna's best location for beginner waves. Our 2 hour lessons allow you ample time to learn paddle out, wave judgment, etiquette, and pop-up techniques. Our instructors are experienced professionals who pride themselves on getting you up, and keeping you safe. We have a very high ratio of students standing up the first time, and launching into a lifetime of passion for surfing and surf culture. 

We are the only surf lesson company with a shop exclusively for lessons. That’s all we do. There are apparel shops, and vans, but we have an outdoor changing area, lounge, lockers, shower and bathroom. That means no stickiness after surf. Rinse off, change, hang out, or go have fun.

We love beginners. No prior experience necessary though you must be able to swim and have a healthy love of the ocean.
