My sister and I took a group lesson with Gerry. He knew the right boards to put us on so that we could get up and standing even when the surf was a bit rough. An overall great introduction to surfing.

My daughter is 10 years old and had a blast at this camp! The instructors were knowledgeable and fun and they had everyone standing up the first day! They surfed the whole time (with a 20 min snack break) and my daughter went from not knowing how to surf at all to feeling comfortable with it and catching waves. No building sand castles and games on the beach - just surfing and having a great time learning, exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend this camp!

Booked Leucadia on a recommendation from a friend who's family had tried it and had a lot of success. Took my 13 year old daughter and neither of us had ever surfed. After a getting fitted for a wetsuit and a board, we headed to the beach (away from the crowds) and went through a good safety lesson. Then straight into the water to start surfing! Gerry makes it a lot of fun. My daughter caught and rode some waves; I managed to catch one! Highly recommend.

We are back at home now after an amazing trip to San Diego. Perhaps the highlight of our trip was our time with Gerry at Leucadia Surf School in Encinitas. It’s going to be hard for me to adequately articulate how amazing our experience was but I will give it a shot. If I could have written the script for how the day would go I would have fallen short. I wanted to learn how to surf and I was hoping that I would love surfing. More importantly I was hoping that my family would do the same. Gerry is the real deal. Old school. Exactly what we wanted. He wanted exactly what we wanted too, which was for us to learn how to surf and love surfing. He delivered in a big way!! He started by calming our apprehensions about the water and the waves and got us more than excited about getting into the water. He taught us great things about finding the right waves, he taught us how to be safe, he taught us how to stand up on the board, and we all eagerly hopped into the water. Within 10 minutes we were all riding waves to the shore!!!! It was awesome!! Gerry was right in the middle of us all, giving everyone what they need to maximize our experience “Do we have to stop?”,’ my daughter asked when it was time to get out of the water. Music to my ears. Mission accomplished!!! Gerry followed us to the shore, all of us smiling from ear to ear. Gerry is the best and I so highly recommend him. You will learn how to surf and love surfing if you hook up with Gerry and Leucadia Surf School. Use PayPal the night before to handle the money and fill out all the forms before you arrive in order to maximize your time doing what’s important, SURFING!!! Thank you Gerry!!
