About Sea, Surf & Fun
We created the first French surf school in California. We are trying to get the French community of the bay area and tourists to surf, but at the same time we love to have American students too. We will teach you in French or in English depending on your preferences :)

My teenage daughter and her friend were looking for something active to do during summer vacation during Shelter-in-Place. We thought surfing would be an interesting sport to try. All the weeks long camps for several of the local surf schools were booked up for the summer. I inquired about a 2 on 1 private lesson for the girls, and Fabien was very quick with his responses. We arranged for 3 mornings of 2 hr lessons for them. After meeting in the parking area and picking up the surf boards, the girls walked over to the beach area where they got basic lessons and then went to the water. Fabien was really good about helping give them a push to better catch the wave, and by day 3, he was letting the girls try to paddle to catch the waves themselves balanced with giving them a hand. I watched part of each day, and could tell Fabien was always engaged and watched over the girls plus with an eye to his surf school kids who were also there with other instructors. My daughter and her friend had a very good time, and was tired after end of each session. They were very happy to learn to surf and would recommend.

If you're visiting SF or live in the Bay, Fabien is your man for surf class. He's the perfect combination of fun & professionalism that you want from a surf instructor. He's incredibly knowledgeable and upholds safety. You are in the safest of hands with Fabien. And, you'll have a blast! I enrolled in Fabien's 10-class program and now I'm surfing on my own!

Loved my lesson a couple of weeks ago. Fabien & Peter were great teachers and very professional all the way through - from booking (nearly immediate replies!) to instructions. Was bit worried late December would be cold, but didn't feel cold AT ALL! Would definitely come back.

On our annual New Years eve trip, our club decided to camp at the Half Moon bay group campsite secluded from the main campground. Fabien and his fellow instructors advised us to meet at the Miramar beach which is just 20 mins walk north of the sweetwood group campsite along the coastal trail. The best thing about sea and surf is that there is a good ratio of instructor to students (1:4). The waves were as expected for surfing and being from Canada we all braved the cold waters even in the end of December when the temperature is the minimum of all. We highly recommend Sea and surf for groups as we received a great group discount as well. Thanks for his support which made our California trip one of a unforgettable one.
