Me and my husband grew up in the prairies so surfing was definitely brand new to us. We did the group lesson first, then two semi-private lessons with both Nate and Graham. The instructors were all very patient and friendly and they worked hard to make sure everyone got up at least once. The beach is awesome, and while it... More

The water was cold, but the instructors were great and answered all kinds of little questions I had that helped me catch more waves that day

I had not attempted surfing since the 1980s. Santa Cruz surf club was recommended to me by a native Californian. Upon booking a one to one lesson and meeting up with Joey; he immediately put me at ease about all my beginner fears. His reassurance that drowning , shark attack and failure to have fun were highly improbable, greatly encouraged... More

So much Fun!!! The Club Ed team took our Corporate Group out for a day of fun in the Surf. Nate, Sky and Juliano were amazing with a big group of people, all of varying skill sets. They ensured each person received individual attention, and that everyone got to ride the waves. An excellent team of professionals, and a great... More

My eighteen-year-old daughter is a serious surfer, and being up in Santa Cruz for a day meant checking out some of the local waves. Ed met us at sunrise with everything my daughter needed, and for the next two hours, they not only surfed nonstop, Ed gave her great advice on how to take her surfing to the next level.... More

I've wanted to try this for several years, bit the bullet this weekend, and had a great time! Club-Ed was accommodating about scheduling on short notice, easy to find, and fun to interact with. The weather was chilly and misty this morning, but with the great wetsuits provided, the temperature was irrelevant. My young adult son came along to humor... More
