If you have never surfed before or surfed a little, this is right for you. What we do is get your balance going in the whitewater, then take you to the outside unbroken waves if the conditions are right. It is unsafe to go directly into the unbroken waves furthest out, (called "the outside") when you are just starting, so we get you going in the easy whitewater waves where you can always touch the bottom. Then when you are ready, we take you to the outside, where over the course of a few days, we both push you into the outside waves, and get you catching them on your own. You can always surf in the whitewater or further out on the unbroken waves, it is your choice, we like to have a lot of instructors in the water with you. But if it is unsafe on the outside, due to wave size or rip tides, we will keep you in the inside on the whitewater.
Moonlight Beach has some of the best beginner waves in San Diego.
San Diego city surf camps are in the middle of crowds of other surfers, not here in Encinitas, where we have the surf to ourselves.
And the Ocean Water Temp has been at 70+ for most of the summer, and that is warm!

San Diego Surfing Lessonsabout our surfing lessons

Our surf lessons are designed to teach you not only how to surf, but how to learn to surf on your own without taking further surf lessons.
While surfing is one of the most difficult sports to master, with the assistance of our expertise after a lifetime of surfing, we can get you up and riding so that you can actually surf on your first time out. In an hour we'll have you doing what it takes others weeks to accomplish.
If you are just visiting the San Diego area, don't live near the surf and don't plan to continue surfing, you can come out and surf with us purely for the physical benefits which surfing provides.
Getting out into the clean water of a beautiful beach and riding the waves is not only an excellent workout, it is also refreshing, rejuvenating, and a great stress reliever which will leave you pleasantly exhausted with a healthy appetite and maybe even the desire to go out and try it again.
From the perspective of your office or workplace, you may not think that you would be able to surf, but with our help, we guarantee that within 1/2 hour of hitting the surf we'll have you standing up and riding the whitewater to the beach with a big smile on your face.
There's not a lot to know in surfing (it's not rocket science), but the more waves you successfully ride, the more you will "know." After surfing since the early 1960's, this is one truth we do know about surfing.
All of our surf instructors are intelligent, experienced surfers who have surfed more than half their lives, and are college students or graduates. They have all been thoroughly trained and given specific written guidelines. Our surf instructors insure not only your safety in the water, but also your ultimate success.

San Diego Surfing LessonsWhy San Diego surfing lessons?

San Diego has always had more surfable coastline and more surf spots than any other part of the California coast, but this has only been recognized in the last ten years! Now you can get some of this surf yourself!
With our instructors in the surf with you, we will have you standing up and riding waves within the first 1/2 hour of hitting the surf!
If you go to the mountains, maybe you'll go horseback riding. But if you come to San Diego, you can go surfing with no previous experience whatsoever with our assistance.

Why, you ask? Because we pride ourselves on getting everyone up and riding on their first time out, and usually within the first few waves. This past summer of 2013, we had our usual 99.999% success rate. But don't listen to us, visit our our photo gallery and/or take a look at our surf camp videos for all the hard facts.

Learning to surf is all about riding more waves. It's a simple fact which is often overlooked. So after we get you riding, we get you plenty of waves so that your first surf session will be a good one.
--"The ultimate California experience, and no trip to this coast is complete without it."
--"This is the real deal from a seasoned local who has the appropriate knowledge and experience regarding surfing and it's culture. The program was worth every penny."
--"...keep showing the kids all that you know about a fun crazy sport. They will remember that for their whole life."
