We enjoyed our sufing lesson with Matt. He was a good teacher and was able to help both of us to stand up. They were also very flexible with the beach location and accommodating with us traveling up to Santa Barbara the morning of the lessons which was very nice for us.

We had an amazing time! Matt is a really good teacher and knows how to make sure everybody can stand on the board. We both fell in love with Santa Barbara and surfing and wish we can come back one time. Cheers Lisa and Henning

We had a 2 hour surf lesson with Austin today and it was fabulous! Both of us managed to get up on the board with his help and ride the line and we loved every minute. It’s definitely ignited a passion for surfing... just the small problem of the cold English sea. If you are thinking of signing up I can 100% recommend, thanks Lovewater and a massive high 5 to Austin for being a great teacher ‍♀️

Yes, Austin is the best! What you probably don't know is that I taught Austin to surf when he was 10 years old and he's now been coaching surfing for over 6 years now. Glad you both had a great time and hope you guys come around again soon! Hope you guys find a way to keep surfing back in England. Check out the Cornwall Coast!

We had a great two hours surf lesson end of March in Santa Barbara. Matt was clear in his instructions and actually managed to teach us enough to get us up on our boards and away with the waves! This I had not expected. Add to that that we had a dolphin swimming only some 20 meters away from us made the experience all the more memorable.

My husband and I were visiting the Santa Barbara area and decided to try surfing. Neither of us had ever surfed before and were not sure what to expect. The surf lessons were great and we had a lot of fun. Matt was a great instructor and very friendly. Would recommend using Lovewater for your surf lessons!
