Venice Beach is well known by its surf/skate culture. While experiencing the culture, Venice is a great beach break to take surfing lessons once it holds surfers of all levels.
All surf lessons are one and a half hours. The surfboard, wetsuit, leash and rash guard are included.
The lesson starts with a land lesson. The surfing instructor will explain about water safety, board dynamics and dimensions, what to do and not to do and your stand on the board. After that 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.
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 really learning to surf and making it a habit, this is the best option.
A semi-private surf lesson means one instructor for a small group of two to three people. This is a great option if you want to learn how to stand up, ride some waves and have some fun!
A group surf lesson is an instructor for four to five people ratio. You would be with a small group, which can make it a more fun experience!
When you arrive for your surf lesson a wetsuit will be provided to you. You can wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing when going to the beach: boardshort, swimsuit or bikini, the wetsuit will go over.
