Very friendly and made it a really fun experience. I learned to surf much faster than a Midwestern boy should have. I wouldn't go anywhere else! Ask for Ed.

I had an awesome experience with Marcus from Surfriders Academy two weeks ago. My cousins had previously tried to teach me to surf with no success so I didn't have high expectations for being successful with this lesson. I was doing it for fun and was just looking forward to the experience of trying.

I successfully stood up five times during my lesson, including riding the entire last wave all the way in! The lesson was very individualized and the instructor paid good attention to what you were doing so he could help you be successful.

This was money well spent and incredibly fun!

Thank Jason C

We were in town for the marathon and thought it would cool to try a surf lesson. Our instructor Marcus was awesome and had everyone in our group surfing in no time. This was a great experience and I would definitely recommend the surf riders academy!

My daughter and I wanted to give surfing a try and Marcus made our surfing experience a great one. We were unsure if we would even be able to get up on the surf boards, but Marcus was a great instructor & in no time we were riding the waves!
We would recommend the Surfriders Academy & look forward to surfing again the next time we are in California. Thanks for the memories!
