About
We will teach you all the basic surf knowledge. Our school uses a unique technique which helps you learn how to stand up on a surfboard in less than two hours, even if you are a complete beginner. You do not have to wait weeks to successfully stand on a surfboard. We cover everything you need to know to become a surfer in two hours. The first half hour is spent on land discussing the ins and outs of surf technique where you will learn the basic rules and surf safety. The remainder of the time is spent in the water with your instructor and later you can practice by yourself. By your very first lesson, you’ll be riding waves and feeling the joy that surfing brings! We offer the best value beginner surfing lessons available because you get the most optimal student to instructor class ratio. We use a part of the beach that is safe and perfect for surfing even if you have never been on a surfboard before.

I reserved a private surf lesson with Alex and learned so much - I'm an advanced beginner/intermediate surfer and I took away a ton of insights from the two hours I spent with Alex. Additionally, he took video and still photos of my surfing that he shared with me, so I can see what I'm doing and what I need to improve. He's a great instructor. Totally, completely worth it. Thanks so much Alex!

Total newbie, never surfed before, and I got a private lesson with Alex. He was top notch. You'll get all the time you need for a decent price. He was super patient and helped me figure out what I needed to do or not do using his four step process. I honestly did not think I would be able to catch a wave all on my own, and sure enough by the end of the two hours I did!!! We worked our way up to it....like a parent using training wheels to teach their kid to bike, and then they let go! Super fun time with really nice and smart instructor!!!

Alex is a fantastic instructor. He really works with you based on where you are at to develop your surfing abilities regardless of level. He is patient, enthusiastic and a very talented surfer. Scheduling with him was easy and he always showed up early! I highly recommend lessons with him---I learned a lot and am even more hooked on surfing!

I was trying surfing for the first time in my life - and it was an amazing experience. Alex is the best, he explains everything clearly, helps when something goes wrong, cares about safety and is super motivating. I was worried that I won’t like surfing, but Alex for sure helped surfing to be more fun and enjoyable! Loved it, will come back for sure.

Nik is an amazing teacher, we went for a group lessons and one private lesson. We were able to catch some waves by the first lesson, and so many waves by the next. He also taught us protocols on how to stay safe in the waters which I really appreciate a lot. If I were to come to LA again will definitely book one of his lessons again.

Since my kids were under 18 they had to do a private lesson. Alex was a very good instructor. Communication was through text. He as good with sending info of where to meet, where to park and what to bring. Kids loved their time catching waves! and now they want to do more! Thank you, such a fun experience!

Me and 6 of my friends took a lesson with Alex and Todd in Venice and it was an incredible experience! Alex was easy to work with to set up a date and time. We met him in Venice and he gave us each wetsuits and a board. Both Alex and Todd were super fun and enthusiastic, as well as provided us with good information and practical tips. We were all beginners but with their help, we actually all felt like we did well and we had such a blast. We are even looking into going back for another lesson with these guys. Thanks so much for an unforgettable time, Todd and Alex!

Golden Wave is the best surf school in Los Angeles. If you are a local or a visiting LA taking surf lessons from Golden Wave is a must.

Love you coach Alex
