My youngest daughter was not feeling well so we decided to stay in Oceanside for a rest day on our vacation. My older daughter was interested in surfing while we were in California so I called SoCal Surf School because of its location to our condo. I phoned about 9:30 that morning and they were able to fit us in... More

It was a really nice day ... We called late in the morning to know if there was places availaible , and they were able to accomodate us. Our instructor Caleb was a really great teacher ... I was scared of the water and I finally was able to catch a wave , plus he's really cute ;)

Had surfing lessons for the first time with my niece yesterday and had so much fun. I called at 11:00 am and they happily accommodated us for 1:00pm. While I managed to stand for about half a second it was a challenge mentally and physically. Our instructor Trevor was patient and positive - a great guy. It was an amazing... More

I wanted to learn more about the world of surfing and decided to call the school to set up an appointment. They quickly arranged a date and time that worked within my schedule. I met with my instructor "Jacob" who provided me with my board and wetsuit. He was professional the whole time and did a great job helping me... More

We had 4 kids ranging in age from 9-16. Jacob did a great job at getting everyone up and surfing. Even the child who had troubles had a great time and was able to get up into board. Great communication about times and very easy to book!!

Really nice, easy to book, accommodating But, compared to other surf camps, there is no instruction--just supervision as the kids head out there. My kids have attended other surf camps, and in those, the instructors don't just take the kids out in the waves, they actually teach them also. Also, every other surf camp we have done provides wetsuits. We... More

My friend and I called a day before to see if we could get a lesson and SoCal surf school was ready and available, even on a Sunday, and a holiday. Our instructor, Megan, met us with kit ready to go and was energetic and enthusiastic. Not to mention a top rate teacher; everything we asked her about, she had... More
