Be aware that their online booking system does not have a way of deactivating once a time slot is unavailable. We were told that an afternoon lesson was available and paid for and booked within 5 minutes. About 20 minutes after booking, we received a call notifying us that the lesson we booked was no longer available and to come... More

We signed up because it was our first trip to Southern California and we couldn't go home and say we didn't try surfing. Our expectations were well exceeded. Wednesday, our instructor, was fantastic and put us at ease straight away. We both got up. Ok, we're not experts but we are hooked now and we're going back to hire a... More

We booked my two boys and my nephew - ages 10-24 - at Pacific Surf School for Christmas Eve and they had a great time! The weather was beautiful and Kevin, their instructor, was enthusiastic - managing to support all three of them at the right time and the right level. The boys all had some decent rides and wished...

Had a great time learning to surf-the instructor was super chill and explained everything thoroughly. I was able to get up on my board the first try!

Got the private session with Fernando. The instructor was really helpful, and really informative in everything you need to know to start surfing! I could get up first try! I'm really thankful cause I got really good instructions and tips!

The instructors were fun, patient and helpful. They even leant an extra wetsuit to my little one so she could play in the cool water. Would definitely do it again!

The staff was great! Signed up at the beach due to problems with signing up on their website (not sure if it wouldn't finalize my payment bc I was using our hotels wifi). The instructors were friendly, went over the basics on the beach for 20-30 min and then went out in the water for an hour or so! They... More

Great team. Friendly, professional, and wasted no time once we got out in the water. We went over a few basics on the beach and then got straight to surfing. Made it very easy to learn because he set me up perfectly for every attempt. Was riding waves in no time!

Very friendly and funny team, good advice upfront and a good coaching during the lesson. We never felt alone ;-) Did I say that the waves were 5-9 foot high? We come back
