Once you stand up on a wave and glide down the face, you'll probably be hooked for life...
It's our goal that you learn to stand up and ride the wave, but also that you feel comfortable being in the water and become knowledgeable about ocean conditions. The waves can be crowded in Southern California, so focus will also be on crowd safety and awareness, as well as surfing etiquette.
When you get that first good ride, you will feel what surfing is all about!
Most of our surf lessons will be at Zuma Beach in Malibu or at Santa Monica Beach. Given the right conditions, we also do lessons at Sunset Beach, Point Dume, Venice, and El Porto.
Use of quality soft-surfboards and wetsuits included.
The listed rate is for a custom, private one-on-one lesson. Rates will vary for group lessons of two people or more.
Born and raised in Pt. Dume, Malibu, I have 27 years of surfing and ocean experience and over 10+ years surfing instruction experience. I also hold a Master's Degree in Secondary Education and a California Teaching Credential in Social Science and Health Science from Loyola Marymount University. Proficient in Spanish, I'm also authorized by the State of California to teach English Language Learners. Growing up in Malibu, the local surf spots have been my backyard since childhood. My extensive surfing experiences around the world include Northern California, South and Central America, Tahiti, Fiji, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, France, and even Italy! I have over 15 years instruction and lifeguard experience working at Rob Lemond's Ocean Safety Camp in Malibu, and doing private lessons at local beaches. My focus in the lesson is always on safety, understanding of the ocean, as well as the thrill of surfing. And yes...I am CPR and First Aid Certified. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
