About PB Surf Shop
Open since 1962, PB Surf Shop is the oldest surf shop and school in San Diego, based in beautiful Pacific Beach on the Boardwalk and mere steps from the ocean. We’ve taught thousands of surf lessons and pioneered the San Diego surf camp and surf lesson programs. San Diego’s Most Trusted Surf School offers a safe, fun, and memorable experience for all. We have been in business for more than 55 years. Each year we teach more than 3,500 men, women, boys and girls, how to surf. Surf camp is actually a great way to make the experience of learning to surf safe, and fun. Our program is dedicated to safety and structured to provide a fun and enriching setting for youth to build the self-confidence necessary to develop into true water-women and men. Up for a more adventurous time around the bay? We also have the largest selection of equipment rentals and the latest surf products at the lowest price so you can find exactly what you’re looking for. We rent foam, epoxy and fiberglass surfboards
