Two girls (13 years old) had 1,5 hour surf lesson with Elias. He was very pedagogical with the girls and worked so hard through the lesson. The girls were so satisfied! We come back if we go to LA again

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

Aloha Brothers were very good. A class for just the two of them will definitely be a great option because they will have more time with an instructor. I would suggest the teens be good swimmers and feel comfortable in the... More

Aloha Ashley :-) We don’t rent the gear after the lesson (we do provide it during our lessons though for all of our respective price points). Typically most of our students hit an energy wall roughly around the 60 min mark... More
