There’s nothing quite like the thrill of riding a wave, and if you’ve always dreamed of learning how to surf, the expert instructors at Learn To Surf LA Surf School are here to help make that dream a reality.
The Learn To Surf LA team uses a simple yet proven technique that enables the vast majority of our students to get up and ride after just one class. All you need to do is show up — we happily provide all the equipment and safety gear you’ll need.
Our friendly and engaging professional instructors use premium-quality long foam surfboards, which are safer and offer the best combination of stability and maneuverability. Since opening our doors in 2002, we’ve helped thousands of students take the plunge and experience the one-of-a-kind exhilaration that only surfing can deliver.
Individual lessons are available in single sessions, or in money-saving three-lesson, five-lesson, and seven-lesson packages. Each session runs 1 hour 30 minutes, and you’ll have your instructor’s undivided attention the whole time. They are perfect for students who want to learn how to surf on an expedited schedule.
Group surf lessons are perfect for those who prefer a more social setting. Class sizes are kept to a maximum of four students per instructor, and whenever possible, we’ll separate groups by skill level to help everyone progress together.
Kids and teens between the ages of 6 and 17 can also take part in our signature Surf Camp, which gives kids a great way to stay active and build advanced skills. These immersive half-day or full-day surf camp sessions are available during Spring and Summer months. Click here for more information.

A Nice Experience
"Hey Pat, Just wanted to let you know my family and I had a great time learning to surf. it was the first time for all and everyone was up at least once. Glenn and Jeff were very patient and great instructors. It makes a nice experience when the staff are genuine and truly enjoy what they're doing. Sincerely,"
"Dear Pat, Thanks again for the fun lesson. We both had a great time! Take care."
Better than Disneyland
"That was definitely better than anything they had at Disneyland."
That was Fun
"That was fun! I want a board!"
What a Great Time
"We're telling everyone we know to see you for surfing lessons when they go to California. What a great time! Thanks!"
"Thanks for the great instruction!! I got up and rode on my first surf lesson! My friends won't believe I can surf now!"
Enjoyable Spring Break
"We just wanted to say thanks so much for making spring break so enjoyable! Being from Pennsylvania, we never surfed before and we couldn't believe how much we learned in one lesson. The instructor was extremely helpful and encouraging and we would highly recommend this experience to anyone. Thanks again so much!"
"I had to write you back and let you know how extremely pleased I am with the surfing instructor you sent out to teach my daughter how to surf! Kingsley greeted us and wished her a Happy 14th Birthday and taught Alyssa from beginning to end. Kingsley eased both of our nerves with his friendly and professional approach. Alyssa has, in the past, had several bouts of a low self-image and low self-confidence. At the end of her lesson, she was on cloud nine, being able to actually fulfill a dream of hers...to surf! And Kingsley played a very important part in helping her achieve this. Thank you very much for an unforgettable great time!"
