I put my son in two private surf lessons with Adam on Aug 24 and Aug 25. He was absolutely awesome. He treated my son like his buddy and he had a blast. My son was up on the board on his second try! The other staff were great too. If you need surf lessons then this is definitely the... More

On a whim, I decided to take a surf lesson on the last day I was visiting San Diego. Even though it was a last-minute thing, they were able to work me in. Everyone was super-friendly and my instructor (Ruben) was very helpful. I used to surf 10 or 12 years ago, so I am not a complete beginner, but... More

I did a private lesson w/ Rosa. She was absolutely fantastic - very knowledgable about the science of the ocean and the waves, about safety, and about surfing in general.

A really nice bunch of people who are also great instructors. They are patient and very encouraging with kids. Tyler, Rubem and Wednesday were great, we took several days worth of lessons and had a blast.

My 6 year old son took a private lesson and was surfing in no time, thanks to his awesome instructor Anton. Adam took lots of great photos of my son surfing. Everyone taking the lessons appeared to have a great time. I highly recommend the Pacific Surf. My son is absolutely hooked, too bad we live in Dallas.

Ryan was a great instructor. I got some good board times on the waves and hopefully i'm able to hit the waves by myself now.

Rosa, Sam, and Nate did a fantastic job teaching three teenagers, ages 13, 14, and 16! Kids had a one-day lesson and all three got up multiple times. It was a great way to learn the basics and we'll be back to Pacific Surf School for more.
