I had read the reviews and could not help to have high expectations-- which were surpassed as Coach Pat's enthusiasm, expertise and patience shined. Pulling up to the beach with the kids in the car and Beach Boys on the radio we were thrilled to see his custom painted van waiting for us. Day 1 was with my eldest son... More

This is the third time we've done a family surfing lesson In the past two years and without a doubt, the quality of the... More

I'm back again. I live in Florida and took my first lesson with Pat last year. During this year's trip to San Diego it was a must to get back out on the waves with him. He's great for beginners like myself with tips and advice to get standing on board. It's also obvious that he's a great coach for... More

Coach Pat is the best!!!! I love, love, love taking surfing lessons from him and his staff who make the experience fun, safe, and successful. I am always more that satisfied with my experience at SDSA (can you tell I am a frequent flier?). HIghly recommend SDSA to anyone wanting to learn how to surf. You will have a blast.

A good friend of mine from England was visiting San Diego last week and really wanted to give surfing a try while he was here. I did a lot of research in the months leading up to his visit and kept seeing San Diego Surfing Academy popping up with the highest ratings. I contacted the owner and head surfing coach,... More

Our family was driving down to Carlsbad this summer and we decided to get surfing lessons. I checked out Pat and all his positive reviews and gave him a call as we were driving down. Pat took his time and explained everything to me over the phone and we set up lessons for the following day. When we met Pat... More

After much searching we stumbled upon San Diego Surfing Academy, my wife said we could find cheaper but I knew This was the one! I was Right, Pat Weber made our... More
