Pick The Encinitas Surfing Lesson That's Best For You!

1 Person Lesson

$ 115
  • 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

$ 95 / 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

$ 85 / person
  • We believe surfing should be a family affair and for only $85 / 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!
