I scheduled a private lesson with this school this past December. The shop is a few blocks off of Mission Beach. I stopped by to check in and pay, then met my instructor on the beach for my lesson. I feel the lesson was a great introduction to surfing. The instructor taught at my pace and I was able to... More

These guys are great! From the moment we called them to book a lesson to calling the next day to rent wet suits. Everyone was friendly and customer service was top notch. The weather and waves weren't cooperating for the lesson but the instructor was upbeat and made the best of the situation. I wish we had been in the... More

I took a private surf lesson with San Diego Surf School December 5th, 2015. I was very disappointed at it. First of all, I paid in advance for the class and was prompted to pay the tip in advance as well. How can I tip for a service I havent been provided yet? I was excited about surfing so I... More

The guys at San Diego surf school seem to just be generally stoked on life. I was travelling by myself and got private lessons but go to meet a handful of the crew that work there who were all super friendly and ensured that I had a great time. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn to surf to... More

Girlfriend and I tried the surf lesson. I had never tried, but she had done it before. I have terrible balance due to inner ear issues, but the instructors, especially the long haired blonde man, gave me specific advice that immediately got me up on the board. I would recommend.

Last year, I took classes by myself and had so much fun that I brought the whole family along for classes! All of the things we needed (wet suits & boards) were down at the beach, the instruction was spot on for everyone in our party (ages 6, 11 & adults), and we had a safe/fun time! The instructors did... More

Our instructor, Olivia, was really encouraging. She was patient and knowledgeable. The location was easy to get to and Pacific Beach was an amazing place to learn to surf.
