My lesson was great! Because Mark was a terrific instructor, my experience was a perfect balance of challenging myself and one of respect in learning a new skill. I would highly recommend the Pacific Surf School.

My 6 year old wanted to learn to surf, so we scheduled a semi-private lesson (My husband and son) for a morning in September. They did not get enough guides for the day, so they put them with two other people. We asked to reschedule (because of the age of my son), but they said no. They offered $20.00 refund, because it was now a group lesson instead of a semi-private. At one point they left my son on the beach by himself. Luckily I was close by with my other kids. I might also mention that the guide was 15 minutes late and left 15 minutes early "for another appointment"...his other appointment apparently never showed because he was sitting there a while.

Needless to say they have never refunded my $20.00, even after numerous phone calls, emails and promises. They are now fighting a $20.00 chargeback on my credit card. Give me a break. If I would have screwed up like that I would have made sure to take care of my customers.

In the summer of 2008, I took a two day private lesson from the school. The instructor was very encouraging, knowledgeable, fun, and made my lesson the highlight of my trip to San Diego!

I highly recommend Pacific Surf School. They will get you standing up on a wave in no time!

My son wanted to learn to surf for his 13th birthday. After looking at several different surfing schools on line I choose Pacific Surf School and was not disappointed. Our instructor, Jason, kept it simple and had us up and sufing in no time. I was not surprised that my 13 year old got up but he even was able to get this 45 year old up and surfing. We has very patient with us and gave us good pointers to improve our success. He also made the whole process fun.

The process of booking on-line went smooth and we had no issues. My only regret is I wish we had booked a couple of lessons for the time we were there in San Diego.
