star ratingSurfing for the first time, pacific style - Pretty cool experience watching the kids and grandkids learn to surf, do the sting ray shuffle and navigate sting rays. Good size waves too. Out of 6 kids, they all did it and rode their waves.

star ratingRussel the Dolphin Whisperer  - Awesome experience. I had Russel as my instructor for a private session and it was perfect. Russel quickly met me where I was in my progression and tailored his tips/tricks to help me fine tune my surfing. I still have a long way to go but I would definitely use him and Pacific Surf School again.

He also arranged for dolphins to pop up nearby and it made the expereience that much cooler. (That's a joke, he has no way of doing that but it still happened.)

star ratingWith many choices for a learn to surf program, choose this one!!!!  - There were many learn to surf programs I looked at for our recent trip to the San Diego area. I chose Pacific Surf School because they seemed to have a well structured program. I wanted my son’s first experience surfing to be a safe one. I wouldn’t be in the water with him and I wanted to ensure that he would be in great hands and he was. Both Russel and Gannon were very attentive to my son and his progression in surfing. The last couple of days in the water were not the most ideal but Russel continued to work with my son and helped him to try to make the most of his session. My son said that this was a life changing experience. Thank you immensely for giving that to my son.

As an added bonus, the customer service was exceptional and communication was very thorough. If you’re looking and comparing surf schools in the San Diego area don’t miss out on this school. Don’t hesitate and make Pacific Surf your choice today.
