I stood up on my very frist try! I had a GoPro with me and one of the instructors recored a few shots of me surfing, the... 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

What an experience to see my boys catch their first waves. They took lessons for the first time and in less then an hour they were out their catching waves. It was so beautiful to see how much fun they had in doing this for the first time. They were the only ones booked on this lesson so it was... More

Hi guys! Thanks for the review, and thanks for coming out for a surf lesson, I really appreciate it. I enjoyed working with your boys, and I hope your family had a good rest of your vacation! You sure got lucky on the good weather, it was hot that week. More

Gerry was great, made sure my best friend and I caught some decent waves and he took plenty of pictures for us on our phones. DEFINITELY recommend Leucadia surf school over any of the stands you can find on other beaches. More time in the water, more 1 on 1 instruction, just a fantastic experience.

During a California skateboarding vacation, we decided to try to find a surfing instructor so our son could give surfing a try. We called Gerry at the last minute and he fit our son into a lesson he was doing later the same morning. Gerry was great; clear instruction and lots of attention to his students. Well worth the money!
