My friend and I had a private lesson with Alex. He's awesome! We both got up on our first try and got comfortable enough to go out on our own the next day. Would definitely recommend Pacific Surf School!

My girldfriend and I are spending the summer in San Diego. We had never tried surfing before so California was the perfect place to start. The indications they gave before starting the class were very usefull, it is impossible to start practicing surf without them. Everybody in the group managed to stand up. The insurtuctors were very helpful and nice.... More

My 17 year old son and 15 year old daughter had a lesson with Alex last week. Neither had surfed before but he had both of them up in their short lesson. He was a great instructor and I would highly recommend the school. Both kids surfed on their own after the lesson. I hope to join them next time... More

PSS was great. My eight-year-old son had an individual lesson and it was well paced and friendly. Instructor was superb and made him feel very relaxed. He was standing and surfing within minutes.

My instructor was Scott. I had enrolled for a individual instruction. Overall experience was very good. There was a initial sand practice followed by hands on ocean surfing. Scott was very helpful and it was great fun. A few suggestions about the website interface though. There are 2 sister schools, and I booked through Mission beach website. The Pacific school... More

This is the surf school to go to in San Diego! Everyone there was extremely nice and helpful. I learned within 5 minutes of being in the water. These instructors know what they are doing. A+
