Overview
Pismo Beach is a surfing hot spot, with riders coming from all over California to catch a wave here. While you could just watch surfers from the shore, it’s much more fun to experience the thrill for yourself with a surf lesson. Instructors will guide you through the basics and get you out into the water. Plus, there’s no need to rent equipment with a surfboard and wetsuit included.

This was my first time surfing and I am glad I signed up with Sandbar Surf School. The team was so welcoming and I had a great time learning to surf and I would definitely recommend this surf school to a friend.

As you’d expect they have a very laidback vibe. However they know surfing Our younger son was struggling until the instructor corrected his form. After that he got up on every wave.

Booked a last min surf lesson for my 13 and 11 y/o's and Jonny and his team were AMAZING. My 11y/o daughter has some special needs (learning disorder) and Jonny and his team took the time to make sure she felt 100% comfortable in the water and taking lessons. She will often times not participate in activities like her older brother but the Sandbar Surf School Team had both of my kids wanting more after their first 2 hour lesson. Thank you. You made our short Summer Vacation one to remember and the kids are already asking when we can go see Uncle Jonny and his team again. I would recommend to anyone with small child or anyone with a child on the spectrum that needs extra love and attention, this is the place. Great for adults too.

My kids have always wanted to learn to surf, so I surprised them with a lesson on our latest trip to the beach. Jonny, Kelsey and their jr instructor Brody were amazing instructors. They were encouraging and knowledgeable. Everything was provided and the cost was very reasonable. As soon as their lesson was over, they both immediately asked when they could do it again! We will definitely be back on our next trip to Pismo.
