I took a trip down to San Diego a couple weeks after I got out of college and decided I would take a surfing lesson. This is where I ended up and I couldnt have been happier. The instructor, Chad I think, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and supportive for the entire hour and a half. Really chill guy that wanted... More

Arranged a last minute introductory class with a friend between conferences. The school was able to accommodate our request and make arrangements that very morning. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again - thank you to the SDSS for a truly memorable experience!

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

Our instructor Kyle was top-notch, quite informative, extremely patient and an a long-time surfer himself.... 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
