It's the 3rd season my now 10 y. o. son is doing this camp (2 summer camps and 1 winter camp). Our experience has been wonderful. I wasn't sure he would be into surfing, but he absolutely loved it. The instructors were funny, attentive, experienced, made him feel very comfortable. The process was very well organized. He loved that fun... More

My husband bought a weekend surfing clinic for me for my 50th birthday. I had no interest in surfing and was a reluctant participant. However, instructor Kathy was excellent. She made everyone feel comfortable, gave excellent instruction and made me feel from the start that I could do this. And I did, many times...and I fell many times too. But... More

Found the Surf Diva on Trip Advisor and it didn't disappoint! Friends of ours, we found out later, used the same school for their kids. We all loved it! Safe, fun, great instruction! Good location for beginners. There was a lot of people out, but there was plenty of room and the kids had the best time. They were begging... More

My family and I were visiting Southern California from Canada and had never surfed before. We were really excited to try it out and I had read a lot of reviews about surf schools online. The best reviews were about Surf Diva, so we decided to go with them. We're so glad we did!! We booked a 1 hour private... More

My daughter used to be afraid of the ocean and now she loves to surf thanks to Surf Divas. She had such a great week with them, she wants to sign up for another week. I can't say enough about Izzy and her sister and they way they run this business. They truly love what they do.

$16 bucks to rent a surf board and a wet suit for 4 hours. You cannot beat this places price with a stick! Just be prepared to walk your board to the beach yourself, in case that's a problem for you. We went surfing every day the whole time we were there. The waves were sweet for first time surfers.

Super friendly staff, best prices for rentals, and the gear is good. I rented a foam board and westsuit for the afternoon and I think it cost like $25.

My 3 teenage daughters and my husband took a 1.5 hour surf lesson at Surf Diva and it was a great experience! We checked in at the Surf Diva store and Iris gave great directions to the beach and where to meet the instructors (5 minute walk). The 2 instructors were excellent! There were 2 other people in the group... More

We used an Amazon local coupon to rent two stand up paddleboards for 1/2 day. They recommended wetsuits as the water temp was still around 60F so we rent two perfectly good, clean suits for $5 each and carried our boards the 5 minute walk to the ocean. Be sure to watch for the chickened flag and avoid paddling or... More

Surf Divas instructors got me surfing on my very first lesson. I didn't expect to even get up on the board, but through their patient and expert instruction, I was able to ride a wave on my very first lesson. Everything about surf diva is top notch, from the wetsuits to the instructors to the shop. If you're at all... More
