My wife and I took a lesson with Gerry on 11/11 and learned a ton from him. We had taken lessons before, but Gerry helped us to read waves and breaks, and gave us the confidence to just get out there and apply what we learned. It went well because we went out two days later with great success. A... More

We had two weeks with Gerry and his team during which my kids, ages 8&6 learnt everything they needed to get confident in the waves and to stand up and feel the lure of surfing ( be advised that not all 6 year olds will necessarily take to surfing instantly !!). My wife who hasn't surfed since the kids arrived... More

First proper surfing lesson, Gerry helped us feel at ease when catching the waves. Jumped straight into it after a pre on ground tutorial. Really great experience and a MUST DO when you're in California! Gerry is a cool and friendly guy and a great teacher!

Leucadia is great. My girlfriend and I had a bad experience trying to set up lessons with another "surf school", and scrambled to find something else last minute. We called Leucadia the afternoon before and Jerry helped us get something set up for the next day at a great price. We did a group lesson (2 other people had signed... More

Gerry, who owns this company, is the real deal! He helped us create memories we won't soon forget. I couldn't have asked for more. He started surfing well before it was cool and I love that knowledge and old school chilled out attitude. If you want to stand up in the first half hour, spend a couple hours with someone... More

I recently decided on a whim that I wanted to learn how to surf, though I am not particularly young. I read the other reviews for Leucadia Surf School, most of which were very good, but I was still skeptical that I would have a great time. I had tried to learn how to surf once before, when I was...

I decided to take my mom and sister out for a fun activity to celebrate my mom's birthday. This did not disappoint! Gerry was a great teacher, very focused on safety, but also looking to make sure that we had a good time. The price was great, and I would recommend this to anyone. I would also love to get... More
