Had a great 1.5 hr surf lesson one morning with the Coronado surfing academy. At first I was worried that 1.5 hrs wasn't a lot of time but with the activity and attention they give - it was more than enough time. They give you body suits (try not to get one with too many holes) so you're comfortable. Also... More

My 12 year old great-nephew was coming to visit me in San Diego and he LOVES to surf but doesn't have much experience. I asked around and looked at a couple of other surf schools but wasn't impressed. The Coronado Surfing Academy really stood out. First of all, it is located right on the sand in Coronado, just south of... More

Instructor and entire team was amazing. Kids were standing on the boards about 5 min after getting in the water!

What an experience. Three kids (ages 7-11) surfing for the very first time. We had two instructors Blake & Sara the whole time. They were fun, patient, encouraging and full of safety tips. The lesson before they went into the water was all about the safe way to surf, stand on board etc. once in the water, it was great.... More

Great! I called last weekend to arrange for a surprise private surf lesson for my boyfriend for this weekend (Father's Day weekend); keep in mind I live in the Bay Area, and he lives locally. While arranging this I spoke with 2 gentlemen and they were both friendly, informational, and helped to make this an easy transaction for me. The... More

We were visiting my daughter who goes to college in SD and my two youngest kids wanted to try surfing. We contacted Coronado Surfing Academy through their website and they got back to us immediately. My kids enjoyed it and had a great instructor-- Corey. He had them up and going quickly. It's hard work as he's in the water... More

I had such a great time. The meeting spot was easy to find and we got started right away. We were in the water in such a short period of time and had an amazing time. Thank you!!

Highly recommend Coronado Surfing Academy. Corey and Mel continually worked with me on rescheduling the lesson during my brief visit. They provided all the equipment and Corey did all the paddling so I could conserve my strength for getting up on the board. I'm 53 years old and had a blast!

My daughter (age 9), son (age 12) and my husband took their first surfing lesson. They recommended two instructors, and it was fantastic. They didn't spend a prolonged amount of time on the sand like I've seen other surf schools do. And all three of my family were able to stand for at least one wave by the end of... More

We recently had the opportunity to visit California where my child's (11) main interest was in learning to surf. We had an awesome experience with Coronado Surfing Academy, so much that my child decided to go every day but two of our vacation. The owner was flexible and helpful, assuring that the conditions were right and accommodated our last minute-... More
