I had the pleasure of taking a private surf lesson at Moonlight Beach with Gerry from Leucadia Surf School and had such a fun time! It was my first time on a surf board and with such great instruction I was able to get up almost every time we chose a wave. Gerry was an excellent instructor and inspired confidence... More

We had two instructors for a group of four. All four of us were up in our boards within 15 minutes of being in the water! Patient. Experienced. Solid instruction. Gerry was determined to make sure each one of us was successful! It was a great way to celebrate my 50th birthday! Kowabunga!

I took a group surfing lesson on the 21st of December 2014, and it was a great decision. I was in a group with three others who had never surfed before either, and our instructor Gerry and his assistant instructor Logan gave us all the attention and help that we needed. Even though the waves were very big and powerful... More

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
