What to expect
  • You'll want to prepare to drive 20 mintues south of Santa Barbara for the best possible surfing experience. You'll meet your instructor at our surf van located at the beach where you'll get suited up in a wetsuit, grab a long board, and walk to the sand for beach instruction. After some brief teaching on surf safety, etiquette, and technique we'll rush into the ocean to catch you some waves! Your instructor will be coaching you and pushing you into waves to make the experience a memory that will last! Our lessons are private so you or your group will have their own instructor and personalized experience. The majority of our lessons are for first timers which is why our lessons include: a surfboard, wetsuit, and 90 minutes of private instruction. Typically, lessons are taught at beaches with a sandy bottom and gentle waves just a few miles south of Santa Barbara. Please note: You must know how to swim in order to surf with us. There is a high probability that you won't have to swim during your lesson but as a safety precaution, we ask that everyone surfing with us knows how to swim. Please note that gratuities are not included in the cost of the lesson.

A Great First-Timers Surf Lesson!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Yo, Sean was our instructor he did a great job! Def recommend surf lessons with him! He's very patient and encouraging it made the whole experience seamless. On arrival our gear was ready and we were out in the waves in no time.
It was our very first time surfing. We wore our swimsuit under the gear, covered up in sunscreen, and packed our phone in a waterproof bag!
Thanks for a great first experience 👍

Perfect mother/daughter adventure
Jul 2021 • Family
My 9 year old daughter and I had our first experience surfing with Patrick and we had a fabulous time! Patrick was so kind and patient and both my daughter and I were able to successfully ride some waves. Highly recommend for beginners and will definitely come back for a second lesson.

Awesome bday
Jul 2021 • Couples
I wanted to try surfing for my bday and I was not disappointed. Sienna gave us quick and easy instructions and made the learning process fun. The fact that the lesson includes the body suit makes a 180 difference in the experience. My only regret was not renting the boards for even longer! Would do again!

Our kids, a teen and a preteen, had an amazing time. They are both new to surfing. Carson was enthusiastic, knowledgable, patient and attentive. If we are in the area again, we will come back. I highly recommend Cal Coast Adventures/Santa Barbara Surf!
