      Excellent customer service & Great lesson
      Alex was super accommodating when Trip Advisor messed up our reservation. He was so helpful on the business side of the lesson & a very good surf instructor. Would definitely recommend & use again!

      Private Surf Lesson
      So glad I chose Golden Wave for a lesson. It was incredibly easy to book, competitively priced, and Alex, the instructor (and founder/owner) was a great teacher. I feel so much more confident getting up and staying up on the board after just one lesson.

      A great couple of hours on the waves!!
      I had a fantastic lesson with Martin at Golden Wave. Martin was very knowledgable and an excellent communicator. I made great progress very quickly. Plus he was very patient. He waited for me and didn't complain even though I got lost on the way and was a half hour late. Thoroughly recommend the experience.

      14-year old daughter was up on her first wave!
      Martin was the best instructor you could ask for. My 14-year-old daughter felt confident and excited about the whole experience. She actually was able to stand on her first wave! Thank you guys, looking forward to doing this again next year.

      Attentive instructor for beginners
      Martin was a great instructor. It wasn't a perfect day for beginners but with his guidance and support we had a good time and learned some basics to be able to stand and ride for a while.

      Got to catch waves within an hour!
      I had Martin as an instructor and he was amazing!!! He showed us evert step multiple times outside of the water and made sure we all understood what he meant. He also made sure we know how to fall safely! In the water he let us try ourselves but also helped each one of us alternatively to make sure everyone was able to actually catch a wave!! Loved it and will definitely recommend it to friends!

      TOP Lesson!!!!!
      My Son had lesson with Martin. He never surfed before and in 2 hours he was able to start to surf. Martin has been patient, motivated and made the lesson super interesting and happy. He was constantly nearly present to my son and explained any step very carefully. I absolutely suggest this lesson. In addition when we called to have info, Alex was super kind and answered all our questions. It’s Top activity.

      Joy of surfing stepping out of our comfort zone
      I took my two adult kids for surfing lessons while visiting Venice Beach. It was amazing!!! We had so much fun trying to surf. Martin was our instructor and he taught all three of us how to stand up on our boards and catch a wave. He was an incredible teacher. This was the highlight of the week and will live on in our family vacation stories.

      An all around very positive first experience!
      It was a first lesson for a friend and I :: had the best time! Our surfing instructor Martin was friendly, encouraging, positive and had good pointers/ input when we'd, again-and-again, fall off the board! He even took some time to go back to shore mid water time to see how I could improve my feet placement. My friend had some movement restrictions due to past injurire's and Martin respected the fact, gave her space to rest & breathe and suggested some alternate moves to faciliate the whole popping-up-on-the-board business! I'd recommend this school and instructor (lovely guy, really!) any day; it was an all around very positive first experience!

    Alex was a fantastic instructor! I took my niece who is 8 and he was able to break down surfing into easy and fun steps for adults and children and then made sure we caught waves and had fun doing it. I’d recommend this for anyone!

    We had an excellent time and will definitely be back! Alex was a great instructor. The extra $20/person for pictures and videos is definitely worth it.

    The business is run out of a van. You meet the van in the parking lot where they give you a wetsuit that someone else had just been wearing and is wet. The wetsuit I was given was also torn in a couple of places as was the suit given to my daughter. The chosen spot to surf was extremely shallow and so falling meant you usually hit the sand only a couple of feet under the water. This was my third surfing lesson in life and was by far the worst.
