Surf Lessons in Beautiful California

Surf culture is a huge part of southern California and this local beach town. Solana Beach is filled with surfers and surf shops because of its proximity to the ocean. Take a surf lesson with us and be a part of this fantastic surf lifestyle. We do our lessons in Encinitas at either Grandview Surf Beach or Swamis. You can also rent a surfboard and wetsuit and paddle out on your own time! We provide you with all that you will need to have the best surf experience and hope you will enjoy your surf lessons as much as we do!


Pick The Surfing Lesson That's Best For You!

1 Person Lesson

$ 105
  • Our one-person surf lesson is perfect for those that want to maximize their time catching waves and have a complete focus on their improvement as an individual surfer. This is also great for children so they can have more attention in the water in case they are not comfortable with the ocean or surfing quite yet.

2 Person Lesson

$ 85 / person
  • A two-person surf lesson is our most popular lesson and is always a hit for couples or best buds. Catching your first wave tends to bring out more excitment and "stoke" when you get to revel with your partner in your shared surfing success. We highly reccommend booking a surf lesson for two if you're looking to share the joy with someone close.

3 or 4 Person Lesson

$ 75 / person
  • We believe surfing should be a family affair and for only $75 / person you won't be disappointed with the memories and laughs that will follow. Whether you're booking for a family of 3 or a group of friends of 4 your surf instructors will certainly introduce you to the party wave. If your family stretches to 5 or more folks give us a call for a quote!

What to Expect With Each Surf Lesson?

When you book a lesson online or over the phone you will give your height and weight to us so that we can pick out the right board and wetsuit for you. Then, you will receive information regarding where to meet for your lesson. We always meet in front of the surf break we will be instructing at. When you arrive you will meet your instructor and they will have a wetsuit and surfboard for you.

The first thing we will do is suit up! Everyone will put their wetsuits on and grab their surfboards before heading down to the beach. On the sand, we will provide you with a safety briefing and teach you the basic strategies for standing up on a board. Finally, it’s time to paddle out!

In the water, you can expect to get instructions on surf technique, etiquette, and culture. After every wave, your instructor will help you learn how to improve.
