Our son found this school on the internet. Monica was delightful to arrange this lesson with. She was professional, eager to serve the customer, and thorough at doing her job. Our son had many obstacles getting to his lesson and yet Club Ed went way out of their way to accommodate. This is a rare experience in this day and... More

Traveled to Santa Cruz, surf city USA, for the first time with my kids from the east coast. Looking forward to the kids taking their first surf lesson. The reservation was difficult. First told 9am, then the school called back to change to 8am, then again back to 9am. Instructor was obviously not interested in giving the lesson and showed... More

My friends and I went surfing for the very first time at Club Ed and we had so much fun. The instructors Manuel, Jess and Joe were extremely helpful and patient with us. They provided awesome tips that made us enjoy every moment of the surf lesson. Club Ed is definitely a great place to learn surfing!

I had a great SUP surfing lesson with Ed. I had extensive prior experience with SUP paddling in flat water, but was unable to learn SUP surfing on my own. Ed gave me a great lesson and I was able to catch 7 or 8 waves in just an hour. What was really great is the amount of effort that... More

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

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
