ABOUT La Jolla Shores

La Jolla, located just north of Pacific Beach and a short drive from downtown San Diego is known for its beauty and mile long sandy beach. Catering to beginner surfers, this consistent beach break is a great spot for first time surfers and intermediate surfers alike.

Pacific Surf School partners with the best schools in San Diego to provide the best experience to people who want to learn how to surf. Our partners team of professional surf instructors specialize in beginner surf lessons and will have you up and surfing a wave in no time, guaranteed.


Pacific Surf is the leading surf school around the world with our headquarters based in San Diego. We teach surfing lessons in many different surf locations and our top priority is providing the best surfing experience.

We have instructors from all over the world that are surf experts. They are all trained with Water Safety Courses, with over a thousand 5 stars reviews and coached to teach to all ages, specialized in beginners and intermediate students.

In La Jolla we partner with the best schools that provide the same kind of high level service.

You can book the surf lessons in our store in Pacific Beach and over the phone, but if you already figured out what surfing lesson you want and when you want to go surfing the easiest way is booking it online through our website.

All surf lessons are one and a half hours. The surfboard, wetsuit, leash and rash guard are already included.

The lesson starts with a land lesson in which the surfing instructor explains about the safety, board information as dynamics and dimensions, what to do and not to do and your stand on the board. After that you enter the water with your surfing instructor to try the real thing, he 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 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!

A group surf lesson is an instructor for four to five people. 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, so you just need whatever you would wear when going to the beach. Boardshorts or swimsuits for men, and bikinis or swimsuits for women.

La Jolla is well known for being the main spot in San Diego where the seals live during the year. It is considered one of the nicest neighborhoods with a great sunset view.
