Learn the basics and improve your skills quickly with

private surf lessons at several Los Angeles-area locations.


Having the personal, undivided attention of an expert surf instructor is the most effective way to build basic skills and master more advanced techniques. Our private surf lessons are available to students age 5 and up, and cover a succession of topic and areas of focus including:


  • Techniques for paddling through the break
  • Maneuvering the surfboard
  • Reading and selecting waves
  • Turning
  • Timing
  • Surf etiquette
  • Tides and other factors that affect wave quality


Refined since 2002, our technique is very effective: the vast majority of our students are able to stand by the end of their very first lesson. After an introductory 3-lesson package, the vast majority of students are able to catch waves and stand on their own consistently. Following a 5-lesson package, most students can execute consistent turns, and after 7 lessons, chances are you’ll have the skills to read waves and maneuver yourself into a position to catch them. Watch your skills improve dramatically after just a few sessions!


Personal surf lessons with our expert instructors are available all year round.


Our expert instructors are passionate about surfing and teaching, and are available every day of the year to help you build and improve your skills. All personal surf lessons can be booked to meet your scheduling needs, and are available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily (8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily outside of Daylight Savings Time).


All your surfing gear and safety equipment is provided. You just need to show up and we’ll take care of the rest!

You can start with a single lesson, or save by booking a 3-lesson, 5-lesson, or 7-lesson package.


These are also available for Group Lessons and make an amazing lifetime experience with friends and family.
