This beach is famous for having great waves for beginner surfers throughout the year. Santa Monica Beach is a “must visit” when going to Los Angeles.
All of our surf lessons are one and a half hours. All the equipment is included: surfboard, wetsuit, leash and rash guard.
The lesson starts with a land lesson, you will learn about safety, board information like dynamics and dimensions, what to do and not to do, and pop up technique to stand on the board.
Right after you will enter the water with your surfing instructor to try the real thing, he/she will help place the board in the correct position and give you pointers so you can catch your first waves!
Private Surf Lessons, Semi-private Surf Lessons and Group Surf Lessons.
A private surf lesson is a one-on-one lesson, which means an instructor just for you and more wave time. If your goal is to really learn surfing and make it a habit, this is the best option.
A semi-private surf lesson means an instructor for a small group of two to three people. This is a great option if you want to learn how to stand up and have some fun with peers!
A group surf lesson is an instructor for four to five people. You will have less wave time, although, having lessons with more people can make the experience more fun!
Some of our partners might not have the semi-private options in their locations.
When you arrive for your surf lesson we will provide you with a wetsuit, so we recommend wearing a swimsuit or board shorts to wear the wetsuit over it.
You should bring a towel and sunscreen to the lesson. Also, we recommend tipping your instructor after the lesson if you had a good time, therefore, make sure you bring some cash for it.
