Overview
We will teach you all the basic surf knowledge. Our school uses a unique technique which helps you learn how to stand up on a surfboard in less than two hours, even if you are a complete beginner. You do not have to wait weeks to successfully stand on a surfboard. We cover everything you need to know to become a surfer in two hours. The first half hour is spent on land discussing the ins and outs of surf technique where you will learn the basic rules and surf safety. The remainder of the time is spent in the water with your instructor and later you can practice by yourself. By your very first lesson, you’ll be riding waves and feeling the joy that surfing brings! We offer the best value beginner surfing lessons available because you get the most optimal student to instructor class ratio. We use a part of the beach that is safe and perfect for surfing even if you have never been on a surfboard before.

Had a great experience. Class was small and personal and covid safe. Alex the instructor took care to make sure everyone learned proper form and safety. I would do it again! Can’t wait to rent from them again He also takes plenty of pics and videos!

Alex is incredible. He teaches in a relaxed style that is easy to understand and fun at the same time. I was pretty nervous at first but he was able to calm my nerves with his excellent teaching.
