What to Expect

Your lesson includes all the equipment - surfboard, wet suit, and instructor.
Your lesson will take place on the border of Venice and Santa Monica, where the sandy bottom is safe and perfect for beginner lessons.
We offer 1 hour, 1.5 hour and 2 hour lessons. The first 30 minutes of your lesson is done on the beach, covering board design and dynamics, wave dynamics, ocean safety, surfing safety, surf etiquette, pop-up technique and form.
The remainder of your time is spent in the water, surfing with your instructor.
Just show up wearing your swim suit, sun screen, and a smile. We'll supply the equipment and good vibes.
