It was easy to pre-book a surf lesson for my 16 year old son. The Ocean Beach location was easy to find and the walk to the beach was very short from the store. The lesson itself was great and the instructor, Jason, was friendly and helpful. It was disappointing that the beach wasn't so pretty as there was a... More

My fiance and I booked 3 lessons in a row with PSS and THEY ROCK! Hands down the PSS group was always having more fun in the water. We did a land session the first day and moved into solely water for the last two days. We had three different instructors who all had continuity from the last and knew... More

A great first-time surf experience for myself and 2 daughters. My oldest had some hesitation about it, but our instructor, Adam, put her at ease and made it a lot of fun for all of us. We are all anxious to try it again soon and would definitely do it again with Pacific Surf and ask for Adam.

I was just in SD last weekend and tried out this surfing school on Sunday, the 17th. I am a paraplegic and so I had to adapt my surfing experience, but the instructors made it just as awesome! Extremely friendly and well knowledge people. I recommend any one that is looking to learn to go through this surfing school, especially... More

Adam was totally awesome at teaching our 14 year old son to surf. He was very positive and encouraging. Our son is not a people person and it is difficult for him to communicate with people he doesn't know, but Adam had our son laughing and engaging in conversation the entire time. Our son has now caught the surfing bug... More

I did the 3 private surf lessons and it was awesome! I did mine all in a row which was nice but I suggest spreading them out a bit since my arms got pretty tired after day 2 from all of the paddling (it really is a good workout!) Also suggest taking your lessons early, mine were at 9am every... More

My 17 year old has been dying to give surfing a try. His instructor was Ryan and couldn't have done a better job. We paid for the photo package which was well worth it. Sure, I shot a few with my camera but nothing compares to the digital files we received from the photographer, Adam. Overall, top notch exeperience!!

I was very pleased with the job Pacific Surf School and our instructor Kevin did for our group of college friends at their Mission Beach location in San Diego. The staff was helpful and upbeat, and the instructor gave good advice and had a great attitude. By the end of the lesson, every one of us had managed to catch... More
