My 16 year old niece and I took a surf lesson from Brock and it exceeded our expectations. The wetsuits fit well, equipment was in good shape. Brock gave us good instructions both on the beach and in the water, and we both stood up on our very first ride!

Matt our instructor was outstanding. The three girls (16,13,11) were never on a surfboard before and by the end of hour and half were up and surfing.

We are an active family of 5. My kids love the water far more than any other California activity. Being from Arizona, it is amazing to see how they take to the ocean. For years, we have been body-boarding and the last visit we made to the ocean 2 years ago my youngest said "Dad, we have to surf next... More

My 8-year old daughter really enjoyed the week-long Spring break camp. The instructors are great with kids and you really can't beat the 3:1 ratio! She was up standing on her board within the 1st 1/2 hr! They stretched & warmed up on the beach, then learned to pop up on the boards on the sand, then they spent about... More

My sister and I took a 90-min surf lesson from Instructor Stephanie. She was delightful in every way. Very patient, helpful, knowledgeable and made us beginners feel comfortable. I absolutely love this sport and will definitely return to this surf school when I return to San Diego! Highly recommend!

Souf and his team always provide an excellent product. We had friends in town from the East Coast, so we signed everyone up for lessons. Everyone had a blast!

To discover winter sports and sailing, this is the ideal city to leave between young friends, this school offers good lessons and teachers welcome you with sympathy to enrich your gliding skills. landscapes of the San Diego area are beautiful and the beaches are filled with beach volleyball courts by waiting your turn to surfing or kiteboarding. I loved this... More

Cody was the best instructor we could not have asked for better, my son and I were first time surfers and Cody was there every step of the way until we we regular surfers! We were running late and they sent someone to pick us up!
