The atmosphere here is informal but yet, full of energy and fun things to do. Basically, it is the perfect scenario if you are asking yourself where to learn to surf in San Diego. PB, short for Pacific Beach, is a neighborhood full of everything. Great beaches, all flavors restaurants, a lot of shops and definitely, a lot of people strolling around.

To explore, biking is one of the best and pleasant ways to see the neighborhood. Bike rental shops are all over the place. Garnet Avenue is where all the fun stuff is. Tons of food, drinks, clothes and surf shops on every block. Two very recommended spots to kill some cravings after your private surf lessons are the Pacific Beach Fish Shop – for a fresh caught of the day any style you want and less than half mile away you can make your own custom ice cream sandwich at Baked Bear.

Great experience with this surf lesson program. Booked online, super simple. Eric and Nick were our instructors...they were fantastic. My twins who have NEVER surfed before were up and surfing the waves within five minutes of hitting the water. Great coaching and encouragement. Thanks for a fantastic morning!
Great experience!
